Exhibition

B. Hoffmann, 2012

Opening
Saturday January 18 at 5 pm

The exhibition features four recent video installations. In the dual-channel video Swing, a scenario is filmed in two slightly dissimilar ways with a camera that oscillates between the motionless actors in space. At moments, views of the scene are doubled, at other times parts of the scene are left out. As a result, images seem to slip away, and create spatial distortion and new relations between the represented persons. Fragmented dialogues, repeated and deprived of their original context become demanding questions, orders, or justifications that allow for ambiguous interpretations.

B. Hoffmann, 2012

Bettina Hoffmann has worked since the late nineties in installations and photography and now choreographs movements to develop videos and life performance. Her work is located at the intersection of photography, sculpture, film, dance and theatre. She is challenging the boundaries of the lens-based medium to create new spaces, both in a spatial and psychological sense.
