MULTIMEDIA ARTIST ANNINA ROESCHEISEN PRESENTS BRIDGING GREY PHOTOGRAPHIC SERIES
Munich and New York-based multimedia artist Annina Roescheisen unveils a selection of photographs from her acclaimed Bridging Grey performative video piece (2017—2019), marking the series’ European debut after being shown for the first and only time in New York in September 2019. On view at Photo London 2021 from September 9—12, 2021, the selection will be featured as part of Boogie-wall Gallery, London’s Three Women to Watch presentation.
Bridging Grey centers on Roescheisen’s intuitive exploration of the interconnectedness of color, movement, and emotion, as she takes the aesthetics of color and, quite literally, embodies it. Choreographed and executed by the artist over the course of over two years from 2017 to 2019, the performance is presented as an eight-channel video installation. Seven screens continuously and simultaneously loop a one-minute video, one for each color of the rainbow: red, orange, yellow, green, light blue, indigo, and violet. An eighth screen, dedicated to the color grey, is placed at the center, its duration being the sum of all other videos, hereby playing consecutively in concert with each of the seven colors as the viewer traverses the work. In each video, Roescheisen poetically embraces a room gently washed in the corresponding hue, staging her own perceptions and emotions of each color.
Stills taken from the original video work, three chromogenic prints mounted on Dibond – Bridging Grey 0, 1, and 2 – will be presented by Boogie-wall Gallery, London as part of the gallery’s presentation at Photo London 2021.
