Werner Schrödl, »Flitter« [Tinsel], 2010

C-Print · 200 x 150 cm

 
Werner Schrödl’s photographs deal with the production of pictures, the staging of situations and the effect of these arrangements or constellations. The artist examines the concept of the tableau, here – typical of his previous work – designating a tension between the picture and the reality laid out in it. The viewer encounters architectural views, nature and landscape depictions as well as scenes in which people are shown in strange poses or engaged in bizarre actions.

With varied gradings, the scene of each picture appears awkward, unreal and manipulated. Many elements seem to be the result of a subsequent picture processing. But it is precisely this assumption which is not confirmed: each shot is the image of a real event, which Schrödl often produces with great organisational and logistical effort. Thus the space-filling weather balloon in a railway station hall, the building container glowing like an oven and the sailing boat capsizing as a result of someone climbing the mast really existed. Likewise, the glittering tinsel was really dispersed and photographed. The event is combined with the respective view of the room or the landscape into a visual loading of the moment, in which the photograph does far more than merely document or capture. The photographic image is, rather, exactly the medium which Schrödl needs for the realisation of his ideas. His actions take place for the creation of pictures and on this level achieve exactly the transitory state that is responsible for the photographed event’s position between image and reality..
