Schauraum: Renate Kordon


„The Schauraum acts as receptacle for the fragmented screen that brings together the projected images as seen from a single point. In this setting Trickptych, a cel-papercutting animation, creates new combinations through the multiple projections which become superimposed around room corners and across the implanted screens, inscribing the film into space and thus dissolving it.“
