Pauline Boudry / Renate Lorenz, Portrait of an Eye
The staged films and cinematic installations of Swiss artist Pauline Boudry and German artist Renate Lorenz often begin with a song, a performance, a movie or a script of the past. Their works To Valerie Solanas and Marilyn Monroe in Recognition of their Desperation(2013), Opaque (2014) and I WANT (2015) present a partially fictional and time-encompassing collaboration, that sheds light on the close-knit web of references to experimental film, the history of photography or underground (drag) performance. They develop their own artistic aesthetic, which – through images, objects and relations – reaches a political dimension by challenging rehearsed norms and the relationship to the Other. Their performers are choreographers, artists and musicians that share their longstanding interest in questions of tangible utopia.
