“STIGMAT” — MULTIMEDIA ART- GROUP’S “LOW RESOLUTION VIDEO” MINI-ART FILMS (FILMS-POETRY)video action ism
Multimedia underground Art group “STIGMAT” was founded as creative group in 2006. Here you find re-formal and marginal aspiration as well as artists with great creation insurgent.
The group was founded by poet, multimedia artist Giorgi Bundovani. At present time the group counts four artist-members: Giorgi Bundovani, Mikhail Gist, Marika Zhorzholiani, Alfred Karklinis, Manana Darsalia.
By the ideal collaboration of Giorgi Bundovani and Mikhail Gist, as they are the mean motive power of group, in 2006 was created 22 mini art films, which were placed in a shelf during next four years.
The group was really dissolution, and only in 2010 it found strength of reanimation. And the name “STIGMAT” was given by the same three person Marsiani, Bundovani and Gist.
The creating of films and their editing are specially made in low technology, by handicraft wars. And they also are created by digital photo-camera. The films, which are made by the same way, are called “low resolution films”, and this method also is affirmed… (The films creation, were passed by the old mobile phones, or by old eight millimetres film cameras).
The conception of these underground mini art-films establishes on eternal re-forming emotional experience and on demonstration of it. The films are made on unexpected emotions, without any beforehand script. It combines on the place, it creating, and on live emotion of artists.
And only time by time there are a few instructions by Gist or Bundovani, or by other artists, may be. Only on creation base! Without any financing interests!
For Bundovani these are poetry films, as he is the poet firstly. The author tries to accumulate his all mystery filling, which he could not transform in his poems.
All the movies are in –AVI- format.
And after all it may be tolled really, that the mission of group would never stop. And in spate of growing economics and social problems, and in spate of unstable group membership, “Stigmat” would continue working in contemporary underground spare of mini-films and in near future you would find a new presentation of new films.
The leader, the editor of group, affirms that being in underground is his vocation. It is the general element as fish’s element is water for example! The films completely present his whole artistic expiration.
