In the spotlight

Moviment, chapter 3

 Wed 17 – Sun 21 May 2023 

From plays of light to the upheavals of history, from an original installation by Rosa Barba to Amos Gitai's architecture of memory: cinema in all its splendour

Highlights

Rosa Barba
Hear, There, Where the Echoes Are, 2023

 Cinema, Visual arts  Installation, performance

 

For Moviment, Rosa Barba has created an installation that befits Gallery 3, investing its great space with a tangle of shapes, sounds, beams of light and projected colours. Designed as a wander around a space teeming with memories, the work offers a sensory experience that is further reinforced during vocal and musical performances, as the performer becomes the conductor of an almost organic and living thing.

Amos Gitai
War Requiem

 Cinema  Installation, meetings, concerts

 

When the Yom Kippur War broke out in Israel, on 5 October 1973, Amos Gitai, a young architecture student, was assigned to a medical unit tasked with recovering the injured from the Golan Heights by helicopter. He almost died when his chopper was struck mid-flight by a Syrian missile on 11 October 1973, which also happened to be his 23rd birthday.
During the initial days of the war, Amos Gitai used a little Super 8 camera to film what he witnessed from the helicopter: faces, the texture of the earth, fragments of rescue operations. On leaving hospital, he began drawing faces obsessively, on every possible medium. He also filmed the uniform he was wearing when he was injured, draped on a hanger. His drawings and short films, Ahare (After) (1973) and Images of War (1974), document the violence of the trauma he suffered.

Then, he didn’t speak of it again.
Twenty-four years later, when he had become a filmmaker and the country looked to be heading for peace, he tracked down those who had been in the helicopter with him and made a documentary about them, Kippur. War Memories (1997). This was followed, in 2000, by Kippur, a feature-length work of fiction that took 27 years to make.


In 2023, fifty years after the war, his drawings are going on display for the first time, in an installation entitled War Requiem, designed by the Centre Pompidou as a visual, poetic and musical reflection on war and memory.
