MOTION PICTURES 

In the KOSCHIES’ motion studies, as in the other works, the unambiguous point of view of the central perspective with its exact vanishing point is abandoned for an undefined spatial situation. Space is no longer geometrical property but is held together by the presence of the figures. These figures move and morph while apparently remaining at their original positions. Their dynamism in time creates sculptural metamorphoses in space.

The photographs prove that objects and human beings have moved through them, leaving only their memories behind. The continuity of action sequences is condensed into seemingly hallucinatory representations. Here, one can encounter the surreal worlds of light and shadow of a de Chirico or Dalí, as well as the aesthetics of the serial experiments conducted by Muybridge and Marey. Above all, however, one encounters an extraordinary spectrum of extracted time – simultaneously confusing and yet able to reorient and inform in fascinating ways.
