Video artists use technological means to distort, change and twist images. They celebrate and explore video as the manipulative medium. In the exhibition 'Part Three of Many Parts: Trick or Tree!' six artists pull out all the stops to visually and mentally awaken the viewer by presenting the known reality in a new, surprising way.

Video artists use technological means to distort, change and twist images. They celebrate and explore video as the manipulative medium. In the exhibition Part ‘Three of Many Parts: Trick or Tree!’ six artists pull out all the stops to visually and mentally awaken the viewer by presenting the known reality in a new, surprising way.

Through their work they show that everything is a construct, and how this can be explored in a playful and critical way with the possibilities of their medium. In ‘Video Hacking’ (1999), Manuel Saiz disguises himself as an artistic hacker who gives video tapes with film classics a new twist. Ghita Skali uses a completely different tool to question prevailing world views. In her video essay ‘Does Elon Musk have a watering can?’ (2023) she lets AI talk about a watering can, revealing a painful misunderstanding surrounding this everyday object.
The artists in ‘Trick or Tree!’ focus on the surrounding landscape. That is another property of video art: it allows artists to visualize their view of the (outside) world. Sometimes only to involve the viewer in the passage of time - as a sleeping Marina Abramovic shows in ‘Sleeping Under the Banyan Tree’ (2010). But also to question prevailing and often entrenched (power) structures and systems and to gently tinker with them.
