Human Emotion Project aims to capture and interpret an array of HUMAN emotions through sound, video and film in an international collaboration of artists. We have screened to date in many countries and will continue to traverse the art world as long as people support us and provide venues for the screening of these works. Human Emotion Project has always been about sharing, about reaching out and the power of collaboration. Crossing borders by means of art. HEP has relied mostly on technology to traverse the globe and bring talented artists together.
HEP finds venues by mutual participation and reciprocal favor. Without any costs to the artists involved, no submission fees and no financial gain whatsoever by HEP or any of the curators that run HEP shows. HEP screens cross culturally; we have artists from different religions, viewpoints, political standings; all working side by side in harmony and we present their different opinions and ways of expressing art to you by use of the moving image.
HEP is about showing and projecting human emotion as expressed individually and interpreted by each artist accepted into the group. How does one hang on to “love” ? How does one get close to emotional truth, in a world full of rigid control where even the expression of an emotion is often frowned upon. Humans are taught emotional control from a young age – “control your feelings”, “control yourself” and to not show what they feel in public because it could be construed of as a sign of weakness. As an artist I lay myself bare and many of the artists in HEP have done the same. Human emotion is the one thing that everyone can relate to and the collection of Human Emotion Project works over time make for a very interesting artistic statement about the human race.
"Love and Hate" was the concept to try to adhere to for the London screening to be hosted by Artreview. We feel that the planet needs a good dose of rejuvenating energy. The antithesis of love and peace would be hatred and war and the planet has seen much of this in recent times; well ongoing and that is a sad fact. We will include works that show human nature at its most severe and also works that elevate mankind embracing his better nature. What man is capable of, his appetite for destruction and his inhumanity to his fellow man never ceases to astound us. It is time for a new planet, a new wave of enthusiasm, a refreshed revised thinking. The use of art to make people aware, a mirror of contemporary society at large is what we are primarily concerned with. HEP project screens many different artists and filmmakers side by side without prejudice, so works that denounce a particular religion or group or country are never considered suitable.
We hope that those that attend the show will enjoy some of the interpretations
