Stop motion, 3:25, projection, construction from wooden slats

Stop motion: Yvonne Brückner

Room installation: Yvonne Brückner and Simone Fezer


“scattering.” is a work of projection and spatial installation. Structures of light and shadow tumble, stumble, fall, play, give birth to themselves anew, dissolve and dissolve each other. Or transform themselves. Everything is a bit wobbly. Sometimes the shadow formations sound like figures, machines or architecture. Columns push their way into the picture from the sides, only to collapse again the next moment. It is an uncertain process. A seemingly anchored -at least bolted- physical structure in the foreground with its reassuringly constant body shadows becomes a co-player of the changing structures. Sometimes supporting, sometimes perhaps disturbing. But even this structure is not immune to the processes of light and shadow, for at times its contours also become lost.
