Gudrun Krebitz, Hydromanie, 2019, Filmstill
The film “Hydromanie” by Gudrun Krebitz bridges a rarely explored gap between the static and the moving image. By means of filmed nature impressions, such as water surfaces, landscape panoramas and weather phenomena, the artist expands the reception of her static drawings. These drawings, created on paper, show a dense web of associations and perspectives on intertwined bodies. In superposition with the moving backgrounds, subliminal “displacement activities” are triggered and liquefy the drawn figures as well as their narration, transforming the essence of Krebitz’s previous animations into a new form.

The on-going screening series Phantom Horizons
presents digital as well as analogue works that question the paradigm of linear perspective, seeking a new kind of “status perspective” [Bedeutungsperspektive]. The latter was a development of ancient and medieval painting, in which the size of figures is determined by their hierarchical significance. Extending this approach using the methodology of deconstruction and the possibilities of contemporary film creation, the presented works open up multifaceted, unseen horizons.
