LONDON.- Daata is delighted to announced the third edition of Daata Fair, an online-only art fair dedicated to showcasing the best of international video and digital art. Taking place from 20 April - 9 May, with a preview day on 19 April, the event brings together 9 invited international galleries, each presenting a single artist’s video work.

Daata Fair provides galleries, collectors, art professionals and art lovers a travel-free experience of screen-based art.

The participating galleries and artists are:

• Alexander Levy (Berlin) - Julius von Bismarck (b.1983, Germany)

• Capsule Shanghai (Shanghai) - Gao Yuan (b.1986, China)

• Cristin Tierney (New York City) - John Wood (b.1969, Hong Kong) and Paul Harrison (b.1966, UK)

• DREI (Cologne) - Phung-Tien Phan (b.1983, Germany)

• Esther Schipper (Berlin) - Rosa Barba (b.1972, Italy)

• Madeln Gallery (Shanghai) - Zheng Yuan (b.1988, China)




• Madragoa (Lisbon) - Buhlebezwe Siwani (b.1987, South Africa)

• Pilar Corrias (London) - Mary Reid Kelley (b.1979, USA) and Patrick Kelley (b.1969, USA)

• von ammon co (Washington D.C.) - David-Jeremiah (b.1985, USA)

Alexander Levy will be presenting Irma To Come In Earnest (2017), a video work by the German artist Julius Von Bismarck. Highlighting the contrasting image-making methods of televised reportage images and art, this piece documents one of the most powerful Atlantic hurricanes in recorded history as an aesthetic phenomenon. Using a high-speed camera, it features slow motion shots passing flooded South Florida settlements and stooped palms.

Capsule Shanghai will showcase Gao Yuan’s animation Cloud of the Unknown realised over three years (2017-2019). Consisting of original paintings which constitute the visual vocabulary and settings of the short film in following a dreamlike narrative of the protagonist traversing through a montage of cryptic settings and symbols.
The last twenty-five years of the artistic practice of the Bristol-based duo John Wood and Paul Harrison will be showcased at Cristin Tierney with four single-channel videos; Boat (1995), Pencil/Line/Eraser (2008), One More Kilometre (2009) and 101 Reasons to Stand Somewhere (2020).

The multimedia works of Phung-Tien Phan explore the social implications of everyday objects, employing references to popular culture to pose questions about creativity, privilege and consumption. A series of the artist’s recent video works will be shown by DREI including Girl at Heart(2020), Actress & Actors (2019) and Half Moon (2019).

Enigmatic Whisper (2017) by the Berlin-based artist Rosa Barba is being shown by Esther Schipper. Shot in 16mm inside the studio of the artist Alexander Calder in Roxbury, Connecticut, Enigmatic Whisper provides a filmic portrait of the famed 20th century American sculptor: through images of tools and work materials, still conserved as Calder left them, as well as the natural external context. The film was widely acclaimed for its “portrait” of a Calder work, which led to Barba receiving the Calder Prize in 2020.

Zheng Yuan is a Chinese time-based media artist whose work often operates at the intersection of fiction, documents and investigative studies. By introducing archival material alongside found footage and situations, Zheng’s work acquires a layered complexity within overlapping contexts. Madeln Gallery will be presenting Nights of Proletarian (2019), a short documentary based on the dramatic life experience of the Chinese Judose champion Kevin Cao.

Buhlebezwe Siwani is a South African artist whose work explores the multiple dynamics of memory, the colonial legacy inscribed, actions as well as in the structures of the imagination. Madragoa will be presenting three of her recent video works; Ekizo (2018), Amakhosi (2018) and Umntunti (2018) at Daata Fair.

Pilar Corrias will present In the Body of the Sturgeon (2017), a high definition video by the American artist Mary Reid Kelley and her partner Patrick Kelley. Set in a submarine at the very end of the Second World War, bored sailors on the (fictional) USS Sturgeon entertain themselves with bootleg alcohol and ad-hoc burlesque performances. Like much of their previous works, the monochromatic highly-stylised 12-minute story combines elements of animation and live sequences.

von ammon co will be showing I ❤ MICAH, a video work by the Dallas-based multidisciplinary artist David-Jeremiah. The work consists of camera phone footage of the artist tailing Dallas police officers onto whose squad cars he has applied bumper stickers which read “I ❤ MICAH”, in reference to Micah Xavier Johnson, the man who killed five Dallas cops in 2016 and was subsequently killed by a robotic bomb.
