SUPERIMPOSITION / Stefanie Sixt – Markus Mehr / 2022 / Austria / 6′
Stefanie Sixt documents the elemental force of the waterfall, the torrent, which has always been there and will be there in the future. It is the whitness of historic movements and power vine of Bad Gastein.
The historic buildings Badeschloss and Straubinger are located right next to it. The walls, ceilings, oors are carrier of century old stories. Layers over layers were put on top of each other, aristocratic patina is written down on the walls.
Sixt undertakes macroscopic examinations and reformulates them to aesthetic moments, interweaves them in an abstract way.

The work was shot in Belgium, South Korea, India, France, Turkey and Uruguay.
In Memory Of / Mattia Bioli / 2021 / Italia / 5’54

it was like crying or orgasms
