From Aerial Vortices

Ani Schulze @ CEAAC, Strasbourg, France

The film installation “From Aerial Vortices” opens up a space free of gravity and leads into an utopian imagination of a timeless society, which perform an endless act of destruction and reconstruction. It takes the viewer on a vertiginous journey into an ocean of moving architectural formations and colourful structures.

If they are full of red
they choose a green or blue
No reaction to grey
no affection to ivory white
They use a thin linen cloth to keep out the wind

Stepping away from traditional linear narratives, Ani Schulze exposes the
unstable relationship between imagination and reality and creates a fictional vortex, which is swallowing itself in endless regeneration, estranging and unsettling the present.
“From Aerial Vortices” expands her interest to unhinge expected connections between systems of image creation, communication and perception.

Ani Schulze took part at the residency program at CEAAC in the beginning of 2015. The piece was filmed at the Ciné Balroom in the Aubette building in Strasbourg in cooperation with the Musée d’art Moderne et Contemporain, Strasbourg.
