Stef Heidhues: "I regard my works as spatial images, as stage sets for a not (yet) written, not (yet) lived or experienced but potential narration. Thus, they create what I describe as tension fields: resonating spaces which arise out of the encounter of visually experiencable situations that can be experienced visually and read individually by their viewers."

Sarah Kürten's art is based on language. The author and artist creates conceptual texts, which she transforms into theater- and audio plays, large prints, installations and artists books. Thus her oeuvre meanders between performative expression, installation and narration. Her obvious interest in typography, graphic design, and text-image create the illusion of visual poetry. Kürten writes all of her texts herself, mostly in English. Many of them evolve from personal experience and situations, regarding architectural and institutional contexts.

Excerpt of a Performance FRAU BERLIN FRAMED (multimedia performance with i-pad camera, waterproof interior moulding frame, tripod easel with canvas, neoprene catsuit , 2 projectors, performer)

In the 2 large-format projection images, reflective intersections and performative actions arise between physical action and pictorial representation. Between staging and reality, between intentionality and medium, between image and space, my body confronts, acts, mediates. An attempt to demonstrate how the urgency and atmosphere of physical gestures can only produce meaning in close entanglement with their multiple media avatars. Between failure and appropriation, I try to choreograph a field of tension live and in projection.
