Film, photography and video are the media Heike Baranowsky uses to explore space and time. Like only a few contemporary artists, Baranowsky succeeds in interlinking analysis and sensuality in such a way that our attention is captured. She is able to send us into a different time and to different places with the moving images.
Although many works appear documentary at first glance, Baranowsky’s films and video installations later confute this impression, revealing their suggestive power through
technical manipulations and thereby investigating the basic formal conditions of cinema. Camera methods in themselves – such as picture section, slow motion and zoom, repetition in the loop, mirroring in forward and backward mode, or tiny temporal shifts in the actual motifs – develop into the structure of her works.
Heike Baranowsky (born 1966 in Augsburg) graduated from the Royal College of Art in London. She now lives in Berlin and Nuremberg, where she has held a professorship at the Academy of Fine Arts since 2008.
The exhibition Time Traps was organized in cooperation with the Kunsthalle Nürnberg and will be shown in the Lentos Kunstmuseum Linz in a reduced version.
