Unsichtbares Kino

Text

Bernd Oppl uses the medium of the model to demonstrate something that is not there. The model opens up a space situated between fantasy and reality.

Bernd Oppl simulates everyday, familiar spatial situations so that the perspectival shift towards something real is highlighted.

His "Invisible Cinema 2016" is a miniature movie house with a camera at the spot usually filled by a film projector. In "Invisible Cinema" the viewer unwittingly becomes a main performer. The predefined cinema setting is relinquished, with the viewer now part of the voyeuristic apparatus.
