Dorothee von Rechenberg, ‘les couleurs de la nuit #9’, 2015, DAS ESSZIMMER

“By photographing film scenes, Dorothee von Rechenberg creates her very own dense narratives. She immobilizes the film scenes and decomposes them into single pieces. In a postproduction like manner she overlays the film scenes with others and creates her own narration and film stories. The photographic images, emerged from the described process, play with our concepts of films as well as with film history. They merge to some kind of a cinematic memory – and are characterized by their outstanding precision and density of atmosphere.”
