The Dress (Das Kleid)

> german version

Video, 1999
(DV on S-VHS, 90 sec. Loop, colour, mute) Projected per video beam
Camera/editor: Wolf-Ingo Römer

The film loop shows the abstract image of a white block of plastic concert-hall seating. A woman wearing a flowery summer dress wanders through the rows of seats. Her head cannot be seen. She emerges at various unpredictable points among the seats, gradually fading away into transparency. After a while the strapless dress - without its wearer - can be seen draped over the armrest of one of the chairs. It too then disappears. The woman again begins walking between the rows of seats.
