A young boy wakes up to find a magical fairy has appeared in his room. Chasing after her, the fairy leads the young boy on an enchanting and spell binding journey through distant and spectral lands, in turn finally bringing him to the hidden "Land of the Fairies". The young boy's journey ends as it began - in his bedroom - where hopefully he has learnt to see the richness of the world and the great love that abounds within and throughout it.
"As a 100-meter sprinter I wanted to create this movie 6 years ago and eventually it made it to my graduate film during my studies at Baden-Württemberg Film Academy. I joined forces with Directors, Producers and DoPs I admire to show how a 100-meter race feels like. In general, it's about the sense of temporal dimension during an average 100-meter sprint. The feeling is translated as immersive metaphors and unique key visuals on to the film."

Ryan Ovsienko’s series Structura, explores the visible and invisible patterns which influence our values, beliefs and actions. Beneath the surface, things are often tangled, twisted and complex. As there are many layers to life and our experiences, Ovsienko asks the viewer to look deeper and seek out the underlying principles and frameworks which expose the richness within.
Swedish electronic musician Galleriet recently released 'Allting är som vanligt' (which translates into 'Everything is as usual' in English). The song is the third single from her forthcoming debut album, 'Romantic Gestures'. In the music video, we journey through a series of stop motion vignettes created by the artist herself, exploring themes of mortality, sexuality, animal instincts and the passing of time.
In wanderings through the labyrinths of dreams and realities, costumes, faces and eras can change. Together with us travels an observer, our only companion being faithful both in forgetting ourselves and in awakening. This silent witness hovers over the paradigm of "good and evil" all the time reminding that the world is not as simple as it seems.

‘Volumes’ is Nick West’s first solo exhibition. Taking place at ONCA, the main installation is entitled ‘A-Z²’. This is his most recent in a series of works on the theme of silence. ‘A-Z²’ is created by recycling the physical elements of a previous artwork. In its present arrangement, the materials have been reassembled into 26 books, each approximating a different letter of the alphabet. Every page is blank but has been cut, folded, glued and sewn before being presented in a cyclical form. ‘A-Z²’ is a perpetual alphabet or a way to say everything and nothing at once.
