A reading space and presentation of video works by Borna Sammak (Not Yet Titled, 2017) and Clement Cogitore (Les Indes Galantes, 2017).


A4 Arts presents two video works of differing material outcomes to encourage engagement on the 'matter' of the moving image.

Clement Cogitore's piece combines music written by Jean-Philippe Rameau for the Opéra-ballet 'Les Indes Galantes' first performed in 1735, with Krump dancers - a movement style developed in Los Angeles in the 1980's. Performed for camera, the work was shown as a projection in a video booth.

In contrast, Borna Sammak's 'Not Yet Titled' creates a video sculpture by combining a hyper-digital visual field, a lcd monitor and a pink steel frame resting against the booth and the floor.

Using these limits, participants are encouraged to explore video works within the fair with an eye on the materiality of works displayed.

This, the first presentation by A4's at an art fair, emerged as a response to a conversation with curators from the Investec Cape Town Art Fair about unstable media.
