Valéry Grancher 26.04.2017 V R 3D Immersive Paintings "War"
Google Tilt Brush, Oculus Rift
At the time of post-media and post-painting, it's interesting to question the image statut and the painting practice itself.
This series is focusing ISIS and Daesh war Horror which is directly linked to the nightmares from our human history. These images are used by the Occident democracies to increase security and reduce the individual freedoms. On the other hand, we can find this kind of imagery in video games that is inspiring the Isis and Daech propaganda to recruit djihadist ! These pieces are focusing this reality.
They are produced as Virtual Reality 3D immersive paintings objects through the application Google Tilt Brush and Oculus Rift. Virtual painting is a painting which doesn't exist, a kind of an utopos painting whose topos is a virtual space.
The 3 D object as a video may be seen through the link at the bottom of each image.

1)Affect, Queer and Artifice in Latin America
University of Bristol (Woodland Road Arts Complex, G65), Wednesday 3rd May, 1-2pm
This talk is part of a broader research project on affect, relationships and encounters with contemporary Brazilian cinema. The aim of the talk is to map out a number of concepts and debates that underpin the ongoing conversation between affect and queer studies and the study of contemporary cinema, especially in relation to mise-en-scène. The first part will focus on Deleuzian theory, mostly those developed in Deleuze and Guattari’s What is Philosophy? (Qu'est-ce que la philosophie? ) and in particular on how the concept of affect found in these theorists’ works can be approached through a formal discussion of cinematic staging. Secondly, I wish to suggest how Latin American critical production can propose a closer dialogue between affect and queer studies, particularly with regard to artifice. Lastly, I will suggest briefly how Karim Aïnouz’s 2002 film Madame Satã occupies a point of intersection between affect, queer studies and artifice.
2)About Encounters, Parties and Loneliness
King´s College London (main Strand campus building, room K- (minus) 1.56, Strand Street), Wednesday May 10th, 6pm-7:30pm.
After presenting a brief idea of how affects could be understood by relationships and encounters and also a very brief and general introduction about independent and contemporary Brazilian cinema from 2009 to 2006 I would suggest a reading of The party and the dogs (2016, 25 minutes, Subtitles in English) by Leonardo Mouramateusn that is going to be screened. A movie made only by photos that talks about the possibilities of being together and what is to belong today. Having studied inbetween spaces (Santiago), interculturality (Canclini) and transculural landscapes (Appadurai) I could point now to a cosmopolitan sensibility that means to be "at home in the world" quoting the title of the book by the anthropologist Michael Jackson. This talk is a part of my recent book Afetos, Relações e Encontros com filmes Brasileiros contemporâneos. (Affects, Relations and Encounters with Brazilian Contemporary Films) that is going to released in May.
3)“Affects and Contemporary Brazilian Cinema”
University College, London (Gavin de Beer Lecture Theatre, Anatomy G04 Gower Street) Friday May 12th 2.00-2.45 pm. Part of the New Approaches to Latin American Film Seminar when the book A Companion to Latin American Cinema Companion (Wiley) edited by Profs. Maria M. Delgado, Randal Johnson and Stephen W. Hart will be realesed. For the whole schedule of the seminar please go to: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/new-approaches-to-latin-amer…
From 2009 to nowadays a new generation of Brazilian filmakers has been making their first short films and feature movies. Facing the expansion of digital images, these movies can´t be considered anymore part of the so called Cinema da Retomada that intended to achieve good commecial results and quality at the same time. In the middle of a production that is regionally more diverse one aspect has called my attention: the usage of the word affect by several of these artists, especially, those who were closer to Mostra de Tiradentes that has become the first and more important film festival for young directors in Brazil. I have tried to understand several of these films as stagings of affects. I have been very curious of how LGBTQ issues have strongly appeared at this new generation. The movie "By your Side" by Marcelo Caetano (2013, 21 minutos, subtitles in English, available at https://vimeo.com/46667865) that is going to be screened and it will be analyzed under the perspective mentioned before and also as a response to questions such as if nowadays art can be a way of life, a way of being together.This talk is a part of my recent book Afetos, Relações e Encontros with Brazilian Contemporary Films) that is going to released in May. https://www.facebook.com/events/1667158213579268/
