Deadline for Applications: 28th February 2013
Open call for photographic and video works, entries by 28 February.
Lapsus reflects on the ways in which works of art are created, especially in relation to new media, photography and video, which allow artists ever more technical and virtual perfection, at the risk of losing authenticity and uniqueness.
History of art shows us that many works were born of accidental 'mistakes' which occurred during the execution of a project, the taking of a picture or the recording of a video; such slips or lapsus' often occur without the knowledge of the author, who can use them as a point of strength in the final work.
This project also explores the idea of fate and destiny in relation to an artist and his or her artwork, dispelling the myth that a technological slip, error or failure can be determined or planned, instead elevating them to an aesthetic image that is a work of art.
Lapsus was born from an idea by the critic Marinella Paderni, and is a collaboration between Celeste Network and Fondazione Studio Marangoni.
15 projects will be chosen by the selection panel which includes Martin Breindl, Elena Ceratti and Silvio Wolf.
Third: € 500
Shortlisted artists will be announced by March 30, 2013
Each project can contain up to 10 photographs and/or videos (max 10 minutes), and must be accompanied by a statement.
Online submission of digital photographs via the website or by mail.
