ACFNY SUPPORTED l ART INSTALLATION
VIKTORIA SCHMID AT MONO NO AWARE XI FESTIVAL
FRIDAY, DEC 07 2018 - SATURDAY, DEC 08 2018
Austrian visual artist and filmmaker Viktoria Schmid's installation is shown at the MONO XI FESTIVAL in Brooklyn. Her work will be featured during the sessions "PROGRAM I - SPECTRAL UNITY" on Friday, December 7 and "PROGRAM II - UNDER THE CLOAK OF DARKNESS" on Saturday, December 8.
Schmid’s installation involves looking back to the early pioneers of photochemical processes in order to re-imagine and reinvent them in the present. The color film was exposed three times, each time through a different filter in the primary colors red, green, and blue. The different temporal stages of a fireplace thus appear in unnatural, colorful colors. The duration of the burning fire is condensed into another--into the temporal dimension of the filmloop. The size of the rear projection screen (4“ width) defies the maxim/dictum of the cinema dispositif--the largest projection possible. Furthermore the projection can be viewed through a diffraction sheet, which continues the splitting of the light into red, green, and blue. The single-projection and installation is yet another work in Schmid’s research into the early color film process and an exploration of the possibilities of a film installation in reference to the architecture of cinema.
