UNUS MUNDUS Vincent Moon & Priscilla Telmon

In the frame of its 10th Anniversary, the Tbilisi Photo Festival will launch the Tbilisi Photography & Multimedia Museum (TPMM) - the first institution in Georgia that focuses on the contemporary image and promotes photography as a catalyst for social and cultural change in Georgia and the South Caucasus. It is home to a vast collection of images that represent the rich traditions of the national and regional visual culture. Located at the hotel Stamba, the inauguration of TPMM is the central event of the opening week and will feature the cinema installation UNUS MUNDUS: Rituals and Trances, by the French artist duo - Vincent Moon and Priscilla Telmon. Their multi-screen installation, which took ten years to make, is composed of more than 100 films that explore the world of sacred music and rituals. Documenting trance ceremonies and spiritual gatherings in many parts of the world - from Sufi rituals in Chechnya to shamanic plant uses in the Amazon, from Ethiopian church chants to Javanese popular trances - the installation is made to create another type of relationship for the viewer with such celebrations of faith and transcendance - there is no beginning nor ending, the entire installation running in loop and being displayed in an alternative system of randomness - there is never any repetition, all the compositions being constantly new and creating new meanings all the time. The name "Unus Mundus" comes from an alchemical notion, popularized by Carl Gustav Jung, of an underlying unity in reality, from which emerges all the archetypes and which is at the core of the synchronicity. The system of the installation, based on random factors, tends to then create simple but subtle forms of synchronicities for each spectator.
