From 16-26 May 2013 will take place the third edition of Oodaaq Festival in Rennes, France.
L’Œil d’Oodaaq is a non-profit organization from Rennes, in Brittany, France. The main aim of our organization is to conduct a reflexion on video art but also on all other forms of images in contemporary art : photography, installation, drawing, painting, performance or new media art.

Oodaaq, an island discovered in 1978 northeast of Greenland, is said to be the most northern emerged land on earth. However, this drifting bank of gravel and silt, covered most of the time by the ice floe, is today untraceable. It is on this invisible, uncertain and inaccessible territory that we settled our camp, in order to explore contemporary artistic creation. Leading an existence somewhere between reality and imagination, Oodaaq can be seen as a metaphor for video- and photographic images.

Every year in May, we organize our Oodaaq Festival. It consists of several exhibitions, screenings, installations in public space, performances and lectures. In 2012, we presented the work of over 100 artists, in 19 different places throughout the city of Rennes, inviting the public to follow Oodaaq’s drift through the cultural landscape of Rennes.
After the festival, we edit our annual DVD, our Oodaaq Selection, on which you can (re)discover some of the videos screened during the festival. It offers a glimpse of the island of Oodaaq, emerging here and there, inviting the spectator to sit down on its surface, and look at the world from a new point of view.

Co-organized by Luxembourg’s Isabelle Henrion.
