One of the most important media critical festivals in the world Lumen Festival, The Projection Gallery finds itself at the forefront of its contemporaries, screening "Tears are precious" video by Alex Mirutziu in an fashionistic never seen rhetoric.After being awarded BEST INDEPENDENT FILM at OPTICA - International Video Art Festival, "Tears are precious" has marked scenes so diverse from the underground Bacon Street London - 2009 to now established Sabot Gallery 2009, Lumen Festival - 2009, and this year prestigious Warsaw National Museum - 2010.
Here is an excerpt from my solo show "Manifest of Flaw" - 2009, sharply screened at Sabot Gallery.
FAT Toronto Alternative Fashion Week is well-regarded across Canada and has a growing international reputation, this year being the fifth event and the second in which The Projection Gallery has participated. The event include 4 themed event days; Longing, Lust, Rage and Joy, in an area of the media lounges accompanying the catwalk, and viewable throughout the events’ evening gatherings.
