Venus nach Giorgione (Venus after Giorgione)
1981, color, 22 min., Documentary
Using various methods of "painting
over" or projecting on top of Giorgione's "Sleeping Venus,"
Böttcher alienates the work artistically. Venus' beauty is
seen within a new context and is thereby newly interpreted through the
eyes of STRAWALDE. The assorted landscapes behind Venus range
from idyllic pastorales to morbid backgrounds. STRAWALDE's art
knows no boundaries and makes a strong impression on the viewer with
bizarre sound collages.
