Brigitta Bödenauer, an experimental filmmaker, installation artist and electronic musician from Vienna has been elected as the second artist-in-residence within a residency program for media artists based in Austria.
During her residency, Bödenauer will work with the Tapes: Rewind team on curation of Tech Noir, the next video program in this series to be presented on October 26, 2017. Her own residence project focusses on the topics of alienation and detachment and uses resources of the WRO Archive as a the prelude for a sound workshop. In relation to the subject, participants of the workshop will gather sound recordings of Wroclaw’s city scape. Assembled by the artist, the recordings shall result in a collaborative sound installation.
Brigitta Bödenauer (AT), born in 1972, has graduated in Theater, Film and Media Studies from the University of Vienna. She teaches and writes on film and visual media. Bödenauer has been active as DJ in Vienna’s noise and experimental scene since the early 1990s. Her visual work has been always inspired by and strongly connected to music. Extensive experiments – driven by her fascination for the sensuality of movement and material – mark the beginning of each of her works. She creates fleeting spaces by employing various acoustic and/or visual means often addressing the intangible, the hidden, or what eludes perception. She has collaborated with musicians, such as PRSZR (Rafal Iwański, Pure), CoH (Ivan Pavlov), Miguel Carvalhais, Susanna Gartmayer or Peter Kutin. Her films received a number of awards including the First Prize at the Diagonale Festival 2004 in Graz in the category “Innovative Cinema” and the “Best Abstract Film” at the London International Animation Festival in 2008.
