FRIEDL VOM GRÖLLER - SILENCE ON THE SCREEN
Friedl Kubelka is an Austrian photographer, filmmaker and visual artist born in London, England in 1946. Her photographic practice has been attributed to a 20th-century movement known as Feminist Actionism or Viennese Actionism. The DVD, SILENCE ON THE SCREEN, is a selection of 19 films by Friedl vom Gröller.
A selection of stills from SILENCE ON THE SCREEN
The heart of Friedl Kubelka´s photographic work (who as a filmmaker goes by the name of Friedl vom Gröller) is constituted by portraiture, whether she captures friends, acquaintances, family members, filmmakers, artists or simply clients, each for the most part gazing directly into the camera. Since 1972 to the present, Kubelka has also placed herself in front of the camera for her project Jahresportraits (Yearly Portraits) in which she mercilessly documents the process of aging. It has become the structural credo of Kubelka´s artistic practice to juxtapose the individual photograph with many other photographs.
The monograph focuses upon individual serial works as combined with contemporary portrait series showing e.g. artists from Senegal which are combined with others from Kubelka’s archive. So as to multiply perspectives, individual portraits are juxtaposed with others (double portraits), or more.
