Eva Schmeckenbecher | The Wall (2017)
Installation, HD video, 7:42 min
A wall is an architectural construction and a metaphor for border and protection.
The work "The Wall" consists of individual sequences in which photographies of pieces of wall are the object of simple, physical actions.
They are processes of investigation and penetration.
Touching, scanning, dissecting, skinning, tearing, crumpling photos also changes the bricks on the image stage.
The motif, image and material are transferred into the three-dimensional or sculptural field - and through sounds into the temporal dimension.
The photographed masonry is present in a new way.
The medium of photography becomes an open white surface, rough and empty, and a light, flexible object with wrinkles, cracks and light reflections.
