Trailers are usually made long before the actual film production and therefore contain scenes which are later not adopted. Thus, Waldach's recent drawings may, but do not have to be part of a subsequent film collage with cartoon elements.
The plot centers also in this case around a young woman, embodied by the Berlin actress Fritzi Haberlandt, who changes her media identity in Waldach's new pictures and becomes a cartoon figure. Waldach transfers absurd everyday and staged self experiences into reduced, red drawings.
The scenery shows us a person and sometimes her double, who in their imaginary world cannot differentiate between private and public, between inside and outside anymore. The Berlin artist paraphrases elements from the genre of the "thinking" horror movie, which generates the scare and threat mainly in the imagination of the viewer, so that a happy ending becomes uncertain.
As already in her series "sichtung rot - film set", Waldach uses image and advertisement strategies of movies to translate them into the media of drawing and photography.
Concurrently, Brigitte Waldach presents her installation "Heimatfilm" in the exhibition "Neue Heimat" at the Berlinische Galerie (13.09.2007 - 07.01.2008).
To accompany the exhibitions at the gallery DNA and at the Berlinische Galerie, a catalogue will be published under the titel "Trailer" at Kehrer Verlag, Heidelberg.
