Pia Maria Martin

Back from the backburner

20.11.2012 -

Time and again, Pia Maria Martin (* 1974 in Altdorf) succeeds in catching the moment when things feel unobserved and everything takes its course.

Doors, pipes, banisters, a chicken that has already been eaten, a few fish on the plate, everything begins to live and a story develops, but we are not allowed to intervene, because the magic would end immediately. As long as everything remains possible, intricate mind games in the light of the projection that include everything that is offered in front of the film camera. Our reality overturns from the habits and meaning can act out in the back. The exhibition shows a series of short films by the artist, who lives in Stuttgart, made using the 16 mm technology, which is seldom used today.
