Reverse Cut – A Matter of Degree
Sinta Werner’s most recent series of wall objects bears the title Reverse Cut – A Matter of Degree (2018), after which the artist’s current Berlin exhibition has also been named. In film and video production, the term refers to a sudden reversal of the perspective that breaks through the course of action and has a strongly disorienting effect. In her new glass reliefs, which oscillate between different mediums, Werner employs this breach of the axis of vision and action as a multidimensional aesthetic principle of disruption. The multiply fragmented spatial images and pictorial spaces that the artist has created in the past years are essentially concerned with the question of how we perceive our built environment and how we navigate through the increasing acceleration and dissolution of the reality in which we live.
