Videoinstallation by Miriam Gossing and Lina Sieckmann

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).

Exhibition: 11.12.19–07.03.20
Opening hours: Mon–Sat 9:00–21:00

The project space OSTEND is turning into an artifact: a video store, non-existent anymore in the age of streaming. Shelves stacked with VHS tapes and a film connoisseur behind the counter.
In co-operation with Wand 5 and as part of the Filmwinter Stuttgart, we present rarely seen, if not completely forgotten film material, preferably on a good old VHS tape. We will celebrate and honour the medium of film. Visitors are welcome to bring their own film treasures to watch them with others after a little push into the VHS recorder – always hoping to avoid a celluloid jam.
For the opening, Wand 5 will compile a film programme from the depths of the archives.

The exhibition brings together two films by Yalda Afsah that were developed in relation to each other, their location both being a small town in the south of France where the narrative follows a bizarre sequence of bullfights. The films Vidourle and Tourneur both portray and fictionalize the setting for expressions of supposed dominance between human and animal, gestures of provoked violence and performed masculinity. Between strategies of construction and reality scenes unfold in which man and animal, rage and performance collapse into one another.

Musikperformance and Installation by Atomox (Nikola Lutz & Chi Him Chik)

Both improvisers are dragging the sounds to the four cardinal points, expanding it, crumpling it, daring its material resilience until it cracks at a rated break point. But soon enough, new vibrations are bulging from the inside as the fracture could not cut up the aesthetic thread – which turns out be highly elastic, evading the pressure and unfolding yet unknown characteristics. With a reset performance that would make engineers blush, it rushes beyond its original shape jumping at the scruff of the neck of the lady in the first row. With their instrumental and multimedia tools, the performers are heading towards the edges of the rated break point of the aesthetic consciousness – inviting the audience to share this adventure with them.
The installations circle current social rated break points and process improvisatorially generated sound material.

The eyes of a trader, the facade of an old radium laboratory, a cortege of Republican guards, snipers getting into position, a somber fashion show, the rotating tracks of tanks, the construction site of Europe, moon masks, a carillonneur shooting his bells, a parade of fraternities, the burning effigy of a General in memory of the Sac du Palatinat and a mournful flock of fighter planes.
Processions is a cinematographic essay filmed across Germany and France in 2018 and 2019. Composed of furtive scenes; of directional marches and European rituals accompanied by an industrial and choral soundtrack, the images never fully reveal the details of their content nor their geographical or temporal origin. And through this montage, larger themes and temporalities emerge.
Between poetry and politics, the film is an experimental documentary. Processions maintains an ambiguity between the evocation of historical heritage and the here and now of our common spaces.
Baptiste Brossard was artist in residence between April and June 2019 in Stuttgart (Kunststiftung Baden-Württemberg/ IF Stuttgart) thanks to the financial support of the Ministries of culture of
the Land BW and of the Region Auvergne- Rhône-Alpes.
