Poetry under extreme Conditions

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”.
