“KLEX 2013: METAMORPHOSIS”
HELLO from KLEX 2013!
So the festival is around the corner, are you ready?
The festival will take place on 22-24th November, at The Annexe Gallery for the fourth time, where it has witnessed the birth of KLEX in 2010. We love this little nostalgic sentiment :)
KLEX 2013 has received over 150 submissions from our open call this year, including works from Belgium, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Hungary, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Mexico, Poland, Portugal, Taiwan, Thailand, UK, USA and more. After marathon viewings, the curatorial team consisting filmmaker James Lee, cultural researcher/DJ Chong Keat Aun and video artist Kok Siew Wai, has come to the final selection of works that’ll be shown in KLEX 2013.
The year we’ll have guest programmes from the Festival International Signes de Nuit, curated by Dieter Wieczorek (Germany/France); from the Filmvirus, curated by Wiwat Lertwiwatwongsa (Thailand); and from "Media-Kitchen”, a collaborative effort between Charmaine Toh (Singapore) and Okamura Keiko (Japan). All curators and/or representatives of the guest programmes will attend the festival in person. Come meet the guests!
We also have an exciting line-up for audio-visual performances. Participating performers include Andra McCartney (Canada), Chong Keat Aun, Yii Kah Hoe, Goh Lee Kwang, Wong Eng Leong, Game of Patience with Brian O’Reilly (USA), Darren Moore (Australia) & Yong Yandsen, Black Zenith, Koji Asano (Japan) & HKPT with Azzief Khaliq, Sudarshan & Christophe “Stalk” Turchi, and Jean-David Caillouët & Florian Antier (France). A truly international feast of sound & image!
Finally, a couple of artist workshops will be conducted, including exclusive film workshops by Dieter Wieczorek for students at New Era University College and Multimedia University. Canadian sound artist & scholar, Professor Andra McCartney, will conduct a soundwalk workshop that is open to the public. This soundwalk will include a group walk, reflective discussions, and individual or small group walks throughout the historical Jalan Sultan area. Interested individuals can email us to register by 15 November 2013 by 12pm: firstname.lastname@example.org
