Fair Chance by Adam and Eve, 2010, 00:07:29

Fair Chance is a short surrealistic tale that questions the values of the art market. The two main protagonists are the “artist” and the “auctionneer”. Fair Chance was created in the context of Special Features, a project by Residency Unlimited, curated by Marie Losier and Sebastien Sanz de Santamaria. Adam and Eve appropriated the Surrealist method of the exquisite cadaver to overcome the project’s restrictions. Here process plays a role equally as important as the final product.

On May 7th at Millennium Worshop, Residency Unlimited is proud to present the film screening of 12 newly created short film and video works that were realised for   “Special Features” at Kumukumu Gallery (L.E.S) in January 2010.  Special Features was co-curated with Marie Losier.

The screening is part of Millennium’s “Spring 2010 Personal Cinema Series” program.

Artists: Adam & Eve , F. P. Boué, Francisca Caporali, Bradley Eros, Juliana Francis-Kelly, Brian Frye & Penny Lane, Camille de Galbert, Peter Hristoff, Andrew Lampert, Marie Losier, Jackie Raynal, Joel Schlemowitz.

With a live soundtrack by Séance (the ensemble), with roe enney, Antiquity, Lary 7, & Eros accompanying Bradley Eros’ work “Séance”.

In January 2010, Residency Unlimtied curated a month long  residency initiative for 12 local filmmakers who were invited for a day long residency each at the Kumukumu gallery. ‘Special Features’ used a simple yet precise set of constraints designed to maximize the time, space and resources available in order to produce new works of short film.

Residency Unlimited converted the gallery space into a low cost film studio, containing all the necessary ingredients for filming a movie: cameras, lighting, costumes, props, backgrounds, staging, etc. Artists, filmmakers, musicians, and performers were invited to use the space and equipment to each make a film over the course of one workday. The artists were challenged to see the possibilities within these limits in order to make a compelling work – an exercise in resourcefulness.
