Touch Me captures scenes in dance courses, amusement parks and cruise ships in Sweden. In all these places people gather to dance to “dansbandsmusik” (Swedish for dance band music). 


Pia Maria Martin

about my work
This catalogue presents Pia Maria Martin’s work of the last few years, with a particular focus on her animated films. Created through time-lapse photography, her cartoons demonstrate the effects of cinema in the rough.  With opulent images and surreal scenes, the Stuttgart artist lures us into a world whose animated protagonists – jointed chickens, fish on a plate and stacking chairs – develop a musically animated life of their own.  This publication exposes the construction mechanisms of film, in which “the interaction of image and sound, editing and lighting is the subject of a romantic story”.
