Joël Massey, FR, 40’

Joel Massey is electronic engineer by training, works as a projectionist, but produces also self-made cameras. He collects electrical and electronic equipment and gives them a second life through his installations which he harmoniously joins together. After having tested several installations and moving sculptures, he created "Ionosphères", his first stage appearance, using old professional and military short-wave radio receivers, a mixer connected to some rack effects to process the audio signal from the receptors, an oscilloscope with an old cathode tube, a mini colour camera and an analogue video effect mixer. On the screen he projects the images produced by electrical signals from the audio mixer.

Pierre Martin, 2013, BE, video, ov fr , 20

A colourful portrait of Phil, full name Philippe Sangdor, singer-performer of the group Tattoo Noise Act.

Oliver Ruts & Andrea Schuler, 2004, DE-CH, video, ov de st fr, 90

Herbert, the prosperous entrepreneur living amongst post-card Swiss mountains. Karlmann, son of one of Northern Germany’s richest families. And Albert, the old-style sailor. Three lifelong friends who devoted their lives to a common passion when this was seriously taboo: tattooing. At first, the three give the impression of friendly, polite and well-to-do gentlemen around 90. And that´s exactly what they are. But once they take off their shirts, their blue tattooed skin tells dramatic stories of a life firmly on the other side of convention. Emotional stories of love and love lost, of friendship and betrayal, of standing up for what you believe in against all odds. Flammend Herz is the loveable, sometimes tragic, sometimes very funny account of how the three once met, why they find it hard to get on nowadays and whether there’s any hope of making up. And through their biographies, we catch a glimpse of more than one century of one the world’s most beautiful addictions: tattooing.
