LANDSCAPES & ICONS – 
Images Emblématiques by Stefanie Schneider

September 22   |   2009   BLOG: FEMININE MOMENTS « by Deep Lez

German artist Stefanie Schneider (*1968) is working with a Polaroid camera, as she loves the faded colours and unpredictable results of photos made with Polaroid films long out of date. Stefanie, who is living in Berlin, goes to Los Angeles, California for 6 months every year to work on her photography and film projects.

Stefanie Schnieders show LANDSCAPES & ICONS – images emblé-matique, which is coming up in Paris at Galerie Thierry Librati, consists of 15 big prints of her Polariods. She takes you into a dream world, where the sunlight plays a big role. You can almost feel the heat emanating from her photos and are you almost expecting to see a mirage appear in the hot air on her photos. An old motel sign, a railroad, an American car and a flag in the wind are the objects, which Stefanie turns into icons of her American dream. There are certain sub themes common to Stefanie’s work, not least that of journeying, on the road, a feeling of wandering and itinerancy, or simply aimlessness.

For me, as I haven’t been to California yet, California is a figure of imagination, a big ‘film set’ for Hollywood movies. I feel that Stefanie’s photos show me some of the locations/ ‘film sets’ in between the scenes of the film, when nothing is happening. She catches something subtle and delicate about the empty urban spaces and the Californian landscape.

Stefanie Schneider not only makes traditional photos, for the last decade she has been making installations combining photography, video, sound and text. See for example Stefanie Schneider’s lesbian ‘Polariod movies‘ Till death do us part’ on Youtube.com.

Stefanie Schneider

United States Minor Outlying Islands

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
