"Stigma" is a live cinema project by Martin Bricelj Baraga and Octex. CLIMAX is an episodic live cinema research-project consisting of many reiterations and incarnations.
It is presented as a collective performance, assembling artists and musicians together to create interpretations of the various episodes. CLIMAX allows us to re-imagine and re-question our changing realities and our collective subconscious through the structure of a non-linear episodic projection:
PHOBIA/ STIGMA / CAMOUFLAGE / PANOPTICON / IDENTITY / VACUUM / PSALM.
Climax is a visual research subtly treading the thin line between a documentary image and subjective or lyrical narration. Unlike cinema essays, the potential of realtime performance augmented by various live cinema performance methods is the emphasis of generating a unique cinematic creation, viewing-listening experience.
Martin Bricelj Baraga is a media artist and freelance curator. His transitory artworks, audiovisual performances and interactive works research the relation between man and machine, social aspects of contemporary pop culture, future monumentalism and the political dimensions of our mediated realities. He initiated MoTA – Museum of Transitory Art and curates the SONICA Festival.
Jernej Marusic aka Octex
is one of most profiled and internationally established Slovenian electronic musicians. His sound is placed somewhere in between club and avant-garde, exploring the boundaries of dub aesthetics and sub bass frequencies.
