>>> Video exhibition 'DOWN STAIRS, UP STAIRS'
Gyeonggi Creation Center, South Korea, 22 – 24 Oct 2010

Video Exhibition
In the frame of Gyeonggi Creation Center Residents Open Studio
22 October – 24 October 2010

Participating artists: Ghosh (India / USA), Hillerbrand & Magsamen (USA), Jaap Hermans (Netherlands), Martin Kohout (Germany), Naren Wilks (UK), Neno Belchev (Bulgaria), Peter Bobby (UK), Signe Lillemark (Denmark / Romania), Vicent Gisbert Soler (Spain), Zsolt Vasarhelyi (Hungary)
Curated by Pavlina Mladenova (Bulgaria)
With the support of: Gyeonggi Creation Center (South Korea) and Videoholica Association (Bulgaria)

The video art exhibition DOWN STAIRS, UP STAIRS uses stairs as a main object, symbolizing going down and going up. Classically defined as series of steps, stairs as an object are static in themselves. However, stairs facilitate change, movement and continuation. How to specify the stairs directionality of upward or downward, left stairs or right stairs? When the mobility on the stairs is a temporary category the immobility facilitated by the stairs themselves is obscure. Stairs contain a priori: They are the prerequisite to the bipolar contradiction of reverses, such as to separate and to merge - spaces, floors, levels, layers, distances, worlds. Similar to the function of the bridge, with the trivial or usual presumption of certainty in function of ascending or descending, the actions performed on the stairs are not immediately obvious.

The DOWN STAIRS, UP STAIRS video-selection represents a snapshot of a diverse spectrum of direct and metaphoric meanings of “going down stairs” and “going up stairs” with various possibilities for interpretation through the medium of video art. Some of the presented videos are centered into artist’s discussion with elements of criticism, concerning the analogical down stairs and up stairs contradictions, such as success and failure, gradation and degradation, proud and shame. Other videos simply supply playful visual narrative and poetry of certain physical or material movements or transitions by the means of going up and going down in parallel to the routine of their changes.

With the allegation from the advertisement campaign of ‘Crookedbrains’ for usage of the stairs in a creative way “Staircase: Who says these are just for going up and going down?” the project DOWN STAIRS, UP STAIRS also set the issues about the suspicious functions of some important staircase at Gyeonggi Creation Center space.
