About The Artwork

Blue Space Dark - Mindscreen 09 (Night on Earth), 1999 58x56cm, Edition 3/10. Analog C-Print, hand-printed by the artist, based on an original expired Polaroid. Signatur label and Certificate. Artist Inventory No. 268 Not mounted. Published in the catalog for the group exhibition 'Night On Earth', Städtischen Ausstellungshalle am Hawerkamp, Münster, April - Mai, 2001 Ralf Christofori - aus dem Katalog "Night On Earth" zur gleichnamigen Ausstellung in der Städtischen Ausstellungshalle am Hawerkamp, Münster, April - Mai, 2001 Stefanie Schneider's photographs are reminiscent of scintillating situations located on the edge between daydreams and sleeping dreams. All of the scenes she has shot in the South West of the USA seem surreally enraptured, and the artist herself seems only to act inasmuch as she gives the decisive impulse. The people who are photographed are no more tangible than the motives for their activities or the storylines of the photo sequences. Atmospheric disturbances are in Stefanie Schneider's work the result of a narrative arrangement, which forces the viewer in between visual mementos and gaps in memories. But simultaneously the artist is working no less purposefully with media, and although their own momentum is calculable, the material that is introduced is largely uncontrollable: the best-before date on the Polaroid film pack has long since expired; the photo-chemical self-developing process takes the exposure and alienates. This dysfunction is a fundamental element in the artist's work Mind Screen, which consists of several parts. She confronts the brittleness of the real, the genuine and the comprehensible with a magical realism dipped in chimaeras to produce dreamlike sequences. And she leaves the content of a presumed storyline up to the viewer. There is no user's manual here for people to follow: in its place, everything succumbs to the draw of these unreal, shimmering scenes, the Fata Morgana of a road movie, an act of violence or a tragic self-sacrifice. Film genres are brought in and taken away in the same breath. Wim Wenders' Paris, Texas turns out to have been shot through a rose-tinted lens, Thelma and Louise proves to be a popular ditty about a heroic mass mobilisation, whilst The Good, the Bad and the Ugly mutually destroy themselves. Things shimmer and flicker before our eyes: we are unable to step out of this dream, nor are we able to verify it. German: Stefanie Schneiders Fotografien erinnern an Situationen, die zwischen Tag- und Nachttraum changieren. Sämtliche ihrer im Südwesten der USA aufgenommenen Szenen wirken surreal entrückt, und die Künstlerin selbst scheint als Akteurin lediglich den ausschlaggebenden Impuls zu geben. Die Personen, die sie fotografiert, sind genauso wenig greifbar, wie die Handlungsmotive oder Erzählstränge der fotografischen Serien. Atmosphärische Störungen sind bei Stefanie Schneider das Resultat eines narrativen Arrangements, das den Betrachter zwischen Erinnerungslücken und –bilder zwingt. Es sind aber ebenso gezielte mediale Einsätze, mit denen die Künstlerin arbeitet, Einsätze, welche auf die Eigendynamik zwar kalkulierbaren, aber weitgehend unkontrollierten Materials setzt: Das Verfallsdatum der von ihr verwendeten Polaroidfilme ist weit überschritten; der fotochemische Prozeß der Selbstentwicklung lichtet ab und verfremdet. Diese Dysfunktion ist wesentlicher Teil der mehrteiligen Arbeit Mind Screen. In traumartigen Sequenzen konfrontiert sie die Brüchigkeit des Realen, Wirklichen und Begreifbaren mit einem in Schimären getauchten magischen Realismus. Den Gehalt einer vermeintlichen Geschichte überläßt sie den Betrachtern. Keine Handlungsanweisung soll hier befolgt werden, es wirkt der Sog dieser irreal flirrenden Szenen, die Fata Morgana eines Road Movies, eines Gewaltaktes oder einer tragischen Selbstaufgabe. Filmische Genres werden bedient und im selben Atemzug wieder entzogen. Wim Wenders' 'Paris, Texas' entpuppt sich als handkolorierte Schönfärberei, 'Thelma and Louise' als Gassenhauer eines heroischen Großaufgebots, während sich 'the Good, the Bad and the Ugly' gegenseitig zugrunde richten. Es schimmert und flirrt vor den Augen: Wir können aus dem Traum heraustreten, verifizieren können wir ihn nicht. Stefanie Schneider received her MFA in Communication Design at the Folkwang Schule Essen, Germany. Her work has been shown at the Museum for Photography, Braunschweig, Museum für Kommunikation, Berlin, the Institut für Neue Medien, Frankfurt, the Nassauischer Kunstverein, Wiesbaden, Kunstverein Bielefeld, Museum für Moderne Kunst Passau, Les Rencontres d'Arles, Foto -Triennale Esslingen.

Stefanie Schneider lives and works in the High Desert of California. Stefanie Schneider's scintillating situations take place in the American West. Situated on the verge of an elusive super-reality, her photographic sequences provide the ambience for loosely woven story lines and a cast of phantasmic characters. Schneider works with chemical mutations of expired Polaroid film stock. Chemical explosions of color spreading across the surfaces undermine the photograph's commitment to reality and induce her characters into trance-like dream-scapes. Like flickering sequences of old road movies Schneider's images seem to evaporate before conclusions can be made - their ephemeral reality manifesting in subtle gestures and mysterious motives. Schneider's images refuse to succumb to reality, they keep alive the confusions of dream, desire, fact, and fiction. She is currently working on the 29 PALMS, CA. 29 PALMS, CA is a feature film / art piece that explores and chronicles the dreams and fantasies of a group of individuals who live in a trailer community in the Californian desert. A defining feature of the film is the use of still images and the use of voice over. Characters talk to us / themselves / you about their ambitions, memories, hopes, fears and dreams. The film is to be shot using a mix of super 8 and 16mm film stock and Polaroid images. Certain computer-generated effects will also be used to enhance the films surreal mood and to animate its dark humor. Radha Mitchell, Marc Forster, Udo Kier, Max Sharam among others are participating in the project. Stefanie Schneider received her MFA in Communication Design at the Folkwang Schule Essen, Germany. Her work has been shown at the Museum for Photography, Braunschweig, Museum für Kommunikation, Berlin, the Institut für Neue Medien, Frankfurt, the Nassauischer Kunstverein, Wiesbaden, Kunstverein Bielefeld, Museum für Moderne Kunst Passau, Les Rencontres d'Arles. www.twentyninepalms.ca and/ or www.instantdreams.net
