Maldives Pavilion Events: Ehsan Fardjadniya's
Ehsan Fardjadniya is an artist and activist based in Amsterdam. His project Pirate Cinema is part of Maldives Pavilion Events Program for 55th International Venice Biennale of Art, 2013.
“Pirate Cinema–a mobile moving-image installation powered by renewable energy. The Amsterdam version of the installation is a DIY, recycled and hacked machine! It is made of five wheels on a bike for three people to move forwards and produce electricity. For the Venice Biennale, we are making a new installation relating to the possibilities and limitations of the city. It is quite important to say that we are especially interested in independent filmmakers and producers and work together with many film festivals. We try to support the makers more than the intermediaries. Our films will be hardly seen in art film houses or at al in mainstream cinemas.”—Ehsan Fardjadniya
