|Galleri Lars Olsen presents two video works by Swiss artist Jessica Faiss|
Jessica Faiss, Videofilm: Rewind. i.e. Rewind, 2011. Loop 9 MIN.
COPENHAGEN.- Jessica Faiss, born 1973 in Switzerland and living in Stockholm, exhibist two video works, REWIND and SOLITUDE.
In this exhibition, we are met with works that are based in movement and moments of frozen motion in unpopulated environments, which describe the condition of travelling in a continuous meditative transfer.
Physical movement is a recurrent theme in Jessica Faiss video work, and she describes her work herself as a method of capturing feelings of vulnerability and solitude simultaneously with peace and freedom. It is about meeting oneself in an existential phase and where the suggestive and monotonic movement between country landscapes and futuristic urban settings set the scene for such a meeting.
Jessica Faiss uses different techniques where the language of pictures is captured in a visual purity and reduction. In her video works, seductive and troubling sequences co-exist and catch the audiences attention and perception with a pictorial language which has its roots in the expression of paintings rather than in the story and narrative telling.
Jessica Faiss is educated in Stockholm (Konstfack, University College of Arts Craft and Design, MFA, Stockholm) and since graduation has exhibited in many exhibitions both in Stockholm and internationally.
