Helga Fanderl in person
Since 1986, German artist Helga Fanderl has made hundreds of Super 8mm films, each a silent document of a place, person, or set of visual elements. “Every single film preserves and reflects the traces of its creation, the sensations and emotions I felt in the moment of filming, shaping images, shaping time, always in correspondence with the subject matter.” Fanderl exercises a unique practice in the presentation of her work, tailoring each event to the space and in accord with the way the films were created. For the screening at the National Gallery of Art, Fanderlprojects 16mm blowups of her original small-gauge works over a dozen short silent films selected especially for the Gallery’s audience. (Total running time approximately 60 minutes)
