We hope that we can work this year with the German Vanessa Hafenbraedl.
Her projects test the limits of what can be done when working with video and animation, light, and music. With her large video works in public spaces, she reaches multi-layered audiences, and by utilizing maximum aesthetics she expands upon audience perspectives. Her video mappings are performed worldwide, from New Zealand to Iceland.
Vanessa Hafenbraedl / Anna McCarthy: LUMINALE Frankfurt.de 2020.
Schneewittchen Denkmal: “In my videos, I bring organic elements in conjunction with mystic, projected onto different materials and surfaces, according to the philosophy “panta rhei” (everything flows). I make images in a context available to the viewer, so he can tell his own story about them. The images and the resulting own stories and thought-worlds are welcomed and accepted by everyone.
The entire pictures of my works are produced and recorded in the run-up, no stock material or pure animation is used.”
