A Tall Tale

 

“The cinema ist the art of ghosts, a battle of phantoms. That’s what I think the cinema is about when it’s not boring: it’s the art of allowing the ghosts to come back (...).”


Quoted from Jacques Derrida’s character in
„Ghost Dance“ (1983) by Ken McMullen

Conversation Piece

 

“Jochen Schmith employs different forms of speech in the in-between and arranges the unauthentic pitches in new formations. The tones, struck elegantly and cleverly, oscillate between analysis and strategy, thus opening further in-between spaces. Meanings appear, but do not conceal the fact that they are riddled with holes.”


Hans-Christian Dany, in: springerin, issue 1/2008, Vienna,
translated by Timothy Jones

I'm a Stranger here myself

 

“The foreigner comes in when the consciousness of my difference arises, and he disappears when we all acknowledge ourselves as foreigners, unamenable to bonds and communities.”


Julia Kristeva, Strangers to Ourselves, New York, 1991, p. 1

“My paintings don’t just aim at mere surface or a well-balanced pattern. They are indebted to a physical – an experienced – narrative mode. They are about, and hopefully convey, reality.”
