In unserem Videospace präsentieren wir die dreiteilige Videoinstallation “Arctic Trilogy” sowie die neueste Arbeit “A Step on the Sun” der amerikanischen Künstlerin Janet Biggs (*1959, USA). Biggs ist vorallem bekannt für ihre Video-Arbeiten, Fotografien und Performances, in denen isolierte und verletzliche Charaktere damit kämpfen, ihr Selbstbewusstsein in extremen Situationen und Umgebungen zu definieren und aufrecht zu erhalt en. Biggs Filme zeigen Situationen wie dahin rasende Motorräder auf den Bonneville Salt Flats, galoppierende Pferde auf Laufbändern, olympische Synchronschwimmer in ihrem Kampf gegen die Schwerkraft oder Kajaks, die ein synchronisiertes Ballet in arktischen Gewässern tanzen.

Das Skulpturenmuseum Glaskasten Marl zeigt vom 16.09. bis 25.11.2012 die Ausstellung „Randsucher“ von Janet Biggs.
