Dancer Rute Ventura Exhibition: April 10 to May 7, 2009
Performance on the reception evening: fri./April 10/ 5 pm – 7 pm

In this show we can see Ballet Dancer, a group of fourteen oil paints (24”x18”) from 2008.

In this paintings, Rute Ventura was engaged with a specific theme – the childish female.

She portrays, with oil on canvas, a ballet dancer girl through a particular perspective in witch we can see reflected feminine grace. Using white, black, red, purple and pink through a bold style, she shows the beauty of infantile feminine innocence. Mixed with a sort of obscurity, that the artist relates with the fears of growing up.

boogieThe short (23′ 41″) documentary “Kalaripayat: When The Body Becomes All Eyes”, produced,directed and edited by Hybrid Lounge creator Ilse “Boogie” Rumes, has won a prestigious Award of Merit from The Indie Fest.

The documentary is about the Indian style martial arts ‘Kalaripayat’, which is said to be the source of all Eastern martial arts.
It was shot in Kerala, South India in the beginning of 2007 and features the different aspects of the art, such as the connection with Ayurveda and massage therapy, the four levels of the style, the weaponry, but it also touches upon subjects such as the place of women within Kalaripayat, the aspect of religion and the question of wether or not keeping the art form pure.

The Indie Fest recognizes film professionals who demonstrate exceptional achievement in craft and creativity, and those who produce standout entertainment or contribute to profound social change. Entries are judged by highly qualified professionals in the film industry.

In winning an Indie, Ilse”Boogie”Rumes joins the ranks of other high-profile winners of this internationally respected award. Thomas Baker, Ph.D., who chairs The Indie Fest, has this to say about the latest winners, “The Indie is not an easy award to win. Entries are received from around the world. The Indie helps set the standard for craft and creativity. The judges were pleased with the exceptional high quality of entries. The goal of The Indie is to help winners achieve the recognition they deserve.”
