Selfish is a project of Giovanni Antignano focused on video live performances. His research ranges from video art to visuals and live performance. His live sets are centralized on an obsessive elaboration of the video loop, where the action is continuously replied and stratified until it reaches its fulfilment. From the end of the nineties until today he has been a member of minor and important collectives such as BlindVision, and the conceptual group Timet which he collaborated with for various sound installations (Sonik Park – 4×4 for Papesse Siena Center Contemporary Art, Sonic Garden for Fabbrica Europa, Sonic Garden a night vision for Musicus Concentus). In 2004 he founded the collective Fish-tank, a group that mainly takes care of digital art issues. He took part to several national and international meetings and festivals (VideoMinuto, Station to Station, Polietilene 2.0, Fabbrica Europa, MAF05 Bangkok, Israeli Digital Lab, Weast Coast Nu Music Electronic Art, Biennal of Electronic Art Perth, MUV, Elettrowave, Festival della Creatività…). He also curated the “What’ s next? 2006” festival dedicated to audio/video performances.
During the past years Selfish collaborated/performed with Richie Hawtin, Fenin, Ezekiel Honig, U.S.O. – Unidentified Sound Object, Marco Parente, Marco Messina (99 Posse), Milanese, Dj Shantel, Lorenzo Brusci, Timet, David Cossin, Larry Heard, Ether, Matter among the others.
