PHOENICIA VIDEOART PRIZE 2017

Phoenicia Video Art Prize 2017

The Phoenicia Hotel Beirut is happy to announce that Rebecca Russo, President of the Videoinsight® Foundation, has selected Mario Daou’s “Northern Lights” video as the Winner for Video Art III: Free Your Mind.
All Art Works will be exhibited in a special Art Show at the Videoinsight® Foundation in Spring 2018.

Following is the conclusion from Rebecca Russo for each video Art Work.

Mario Daou – “Northern Lights” 2017

RR : “It contains a lot of energy, motion, power. The amount of colours is explosive. The artwork shows one shot the Life, the Science, the Art. It transmits happiness, joy, cheerfulness. It is amazing, chromo therapeutic, magic.”

Elie Fahed – “How Does It Feel To Miss Someone” 2017

RR : “It’s a performative work. It touches the soul, activates the reflection, promotes identification, and involves the spectator. It has a rushing rhythm. It’s powerful, gorgeous.”

Loukman Nassredine – “Suppression” 2017

RR : “It’s so psychoanalytic; it deeply represents the memory process, the amnesia, the forgetfulness, the elaboration of the loss, the unconscious removal. It has a very high Videoinsight® Impact; it’s perfect for Art Therapy applying the Videoinsight® Method. Everybody needs to remove something.”

Jeroen Kramer – “Untitled 305” 2017

RR : “It is very poetic, romantic, pictorial, and meditative. The black and white choice is original, the technique is sophisticated.”

Mamad Mossadegh – “The Breeze” 2016

RR : “It’s very delicate, fresh, and light. It promotes the meditation, the relaxation. It raises the pain, opens the hearth, and stimulates the Well-being.”
