Carte blanche au Frac de Franche-Comté : The record

Ulla Von Brandenburg


"In Ulla von Brandenburg’s The Record, shot on 8mm, we see a solitary man standing in dappled twilight holding a vinyl record, his movements seem furtive and he appears to be attempting to conceal himself. He looks cautiously around before tracing its grooves with his index finger; using it as a stylus he seems to physically draw music from the disc – an improvised piano composition by von Brandenburg herself. von Brandenburg’s works are characterized by the repetition of a particular image or motif, creating scenarios that loop back upon themselves perpetually like a stylus stuck in the run out groove of a record."
