THERESIA

by Thomas STEINER
2013 / HD / color / sound / 1S / 6' 40

Theresia is a painted animation picture, that transformes a series of fotographies taken in a church into abstract painting. The oval room and the cameramovement within becomes a pictorial space producing various possibilities of perception
The colorless opening sequence is a montage of animated photographs showing the oval interior of the eponymous St. Theresia church in Linz, the work of architect Rudolf Schwarz. Steiner made a photographic series of this striking place of worship, which was built in the early 1960s, then worked on the images with a computer.... Although Steiner abstracts his photographs completely, the particular atmosphere of this remarkable church is tangible in the video. With a high degree of sensitivity he translated the sublime nature of this religious building into fluid and sonorous painting, into an invitation to contemplate. (Norbert Pfaffenbichler)
