Based on sixteen different film props from prop rentals of the film industry, Sixteen Props explores fetishised objects which – with regards to the classic Hollywood cinema – represent female characters and their unfulfilled desires. Through recurring text fragments from original scripts dealing with the subjects of “break up”, “stalking” and “ghosting” produces an imaginary filmic figure that remains in the shadows. Within the loops of the sixteen different screens new narrations and mysterious entanglements keep blending and blurring the borders of illusion, projection and reality over time.
As an artistic duo, Miriam Gossing and Lina Sieckmann are working at the borderlines of film and visual arts. In their work, they explore urban and private architectures, hyper-staged interiors, collective desire and the ghosts of remembrance. Their works have been presented and awarded around the world in exhibitions and at festivals (for example Hamburger Bahnhof - Museum für Gegenwart Berlin; Julia Stoschek Collection, International Film Festival Rotterdam, Image Forum Tokyo, Anthology Film Archives New York City).
