START POINT PRIZE – Prize for emerging artists

Stefanie Walk

Audiovisual installation of Stefanie Walk speaks of relationships between specific authors as love partners, but is also a kind of study of spontaneity and seduction, which turns into a ritual. A young woman invites us with an increasing expressivity into her own enclosure, accompanied with a sound of music, composed by her now ex-partner. The title I am you! points then to the general validity of emotions that accompany all amorous outset and breakups, subconsciously and painfully hypnotic. Two complementary photos of both mentioned authors overlap partially, but they are proudly (or rather resignedly) autonomous. (Pavel Vančát)
