show : David Domingo @ Pantalla CCCB

Centre Cultura Contemporania Barcelona
In his films, the artist also known as Stanley Sunday, gives free rein to his vivid imagination and expresses his fantastic personal universe in a delirious, iconoclastic stream of associations, using his particular imagery especially based on artefacts and icons of pop culture. Combining images borrowed from classics or B movies with his own, and abstract moments with scenes featuring his favourite actors, David Domingo blows hierarchies and causal logic sky high to generate a stream of images of surprising, enigmatic associations that denote a comprehensive knowledge of the tradition of avant-garde and experimental film.

show : Michel Goossens @ Pantalla CCCB

Centre Cultura Contemporania Barcelona
Michel Goossens studied Biology in the Netherlands and extensively travelled the world, living in Australia and Canada, before settling in Barcelona. His works are a combination of short narrative and conceptual films. His films show the influence of his scientific background, through a commonality to deconstruct and view topics in their separate elements, leading to a more abstract style of filmmaking.
