Homo Genesis

Expect the unexpected. For audiences at the Village Cinema in Hobart who have been scratching their heads over that enigmatic and anonymous little 30-second trailer screening at their cinema since November, wonder no more. Although the work is screened without a title, the Bulgarian-born multimedia artist Antoanetta Ivanova refers to the project as Homo Genesis reflecting the concerns that motivated it. “Homo Genesis is a mysterious visual unfolding of natural forces with a rapid-fire mix of traditional and urban sounds…It challenges our perceptions of art and the media and the detached way we view the uninterrupted flow of images and information on screen. It catches the audience off guard in order to provoke a more primal, unprepared response, and to encourage a multiplicity of readings.” Based in Hobart for the past 3 years, Antoanetta’s last public work Deluge was a large billboard image located at a busy traffic intersection.
Homo Genesis screens at the Village Cinema, Hobart, 18 November – 16 December.
