Video sculpture | architectural device | rotating figure inscribing a circle | six channel





The large scale installations and models are yet again subject to the human figure moving in space. The artist documents with two cameras a moving human figure that describes a circle on a turning disc on a theatre stage and at the same time is being moved by the disc. Thus a moment of standstill in full movement is being created. Through the variations of the cameras’ perspectives, Welz manages to show the human figure in its reverse position in the space.

By projecting and rearranging various sequences onto wall-constructions, projection screens or models his work obtains an architectural sculptural character. The almost constructivist wall arrangement allows the viewer open sight on the technical, raw behind-the-scene construction. Peter Welz manages to show time through moving standstill with assistants of the medium video.

With many great thanks to Christopher Roman.
