Cold Single (2019) is a new experimental short film by artist ITEM IDEM (Cyril Duval) in collaboration with Taiwanese director MEL HSIEH & featuring a musical score by American producer DUTCH E GERM (Tim DeWit). Based in Asia (Japan, China, Taiwan) for many years, the French multimedia artist ITEM IDEM has constantly been dwelling on local resources of folklore, religions, and industrial aesthetics to create a multidimensional body of work: Through his projects like ITEM IDEM, or SHANZHAI BIENNIAL, his practice spans conceptual media, films, sculptures and incorporates the aesthetic of product design and the codes of visual communication.

Screening on Friday, February 14 at 11am - 2pm at Paramount Theater. ITEM IDEM is in conversation with Venus Lau on Saturday, February 15 at 1:30 - 2:30pm at Paramount Theater
