Lemeh42, a couple and art group from Senigallia, Italy, are
presenting their work on video at Directors Lounge at Z-Bar. The
program consists of charming, witty and divers short films. From
"Alice in Wonderland" to "Study on Human Form and Humanity #01", the
range of touched genres in video and film history is amazingly wide.
Such forms as animation of photo motion and drawing, dance film,
abstraction, studio cinematography and documentary vision all are
included in Lemeh42펣 work. What makes the work specifically fresh
and enjoyable, yet, is the tension between straight, conceptual
thinking and a fairy-tale-like romanticism that relates to childhood
experiences and fantasies. "Our childhood is like the fundamental
years in our lives in which we have prepared everything and now we
are using all that material to create our stories." The work seems to
fluctuate between the two concepts, which - as Michele admits -
reflect their different characters, Michele being the rational
conceptual part and Lorenza the romantic-melancholic one. Still, the
two concepts always mix, as all their work is collaborative in
different ways, in sometimes surprising ways, thus giving all of the
video work both a dreamlike atmosphere and a stringent structure,
plus, and in addition, a spicy taste of fine humour or irony.

Michele Santini/ Lemeh42 will be present at the screening, he will
tell us about the collaboration with Lorenza Paolini, and of course,
be available for Q&A.
