Irina Gabiani at: HUMAN EMOTION PROJECT, Guildford Lane Gallery, Melbourne, Australia 2009

(HEP 2009 – Australia)

Guildford Lane Gallery, 20-24 Guildford Lane, Melbourne – Australia
25 February – 8 March 2009

Human Emotions documented visually by international artists using film or video, for the first physical screening in Melbourne – Australia and launch of HEP 2009.

……Emotions are inherently difficult to explicate. How does one describe fear? We know it when we feel it but how can we share, through the paltry use of language, our experience of it? Moving images, mostly embellished with sound, extend the expressive possibilities beyond what can be accomplished through language or even static imagery. By employing the largest palette of creative possibilities, film and video artists from around the world strive to externalize those complex driving forces that we all enjoy and endure and that bind us, as humanity, together despite our differences…..
