(Clermont-Ferrand, France) The competition, thanks to its international dimension, offers an opportunity for the contemporary video art creation to show up. Originality in writings and artistic research must prevail over the quality of the technical tools used in the realisation of each work. 2012 PIPA Nominee Antonia Dias Leite screens “Sein und Zeit” (Being and Time), a shortfilme based on the idea of Eros and Thanatos, expressing the sexual act as a form of canibalism by presenting multiple body parts interlacing.
