Video Aesthetics in Cinema and Video Art

Cover Page


The article is devoted to the genesis and unique semantic characteristics of video aesthetics pertinent to both auteur cinema and modern art (video art, in particular). Being a kind of ‘common denominator’ for these art forms, video aesthetics manifests itself differently in the art gallery and film theatre, in the duration of a video work and a feature film, in the mentality of a film director and an artist. The author makes an attempt to reveal the methods of reciprocal influence of the two art forms, their specific languages connected through video aesthetics illustrated by the work of Harmony Korine, Vincent Gallo, Philippe Grandrieux and Philippe Parreno.
