There are nine of them, from different countries and disciplines (including photography, sculpture, and painting). Art Forms Us, a Harlem-based artist collective, will present eight short and intriguing videos inspired by the theme of “Counting.” Catch them at El Barrio Artspace PS 109 (Saturday, September 18) and Marcus Garvey Park (Wednesday, September 29). And it’s free!
Several French and Francophone artists are included in this collective, which formed in 2020, during the pandemic. Among them are visual artists Capucine Bourcart (France), Dominique de Cock (Belgium), Viviane Rombaldi-Seppey (Switzerland), and French multimedia artist Xavier Roux.
The videos on display immerse visitors in a variety of worlds: the formation of a giant wreath in tribute to the Covid dead, the resilience of Harlem trees, the noise of the street, the denunciation of mass consumption through the parade of an artist in the neighborhood dressed in plastic bags.
The complete list of artists is: Capucine Bourcart, Dominique de Cock, Noreen Dean Dresser, Undine Groeger, Salem Krieger, Leah Poller, Vivian Rombaldi Seppey, Xavier Roux, and Allicette Torres.
