Studio Kinematix

Soviet Union / Moldova | 1968, 1974 | Mixed Media, Music, Performance, Spatial, Video | Film

Studio Kinematix investigates the use of musical structures in visual imagery. Their research turns into musical performances, installations, objects, comic strips and videos. The production of Studio Kinematix is related to Samizdat: homemade, bootleg, clandestine copied and distributed literature or other media in Soviet-bloc countries. Their records are cut on X-Rays pictures of their body parts, e.g. fractured bones, organs, and look almost similar, but the sound on them is different. In this way the records themselves become unique artworks.
