Bastienne Schmidt: Home Stills

Foreword by Vicki Goldberg.

Featured image is <I>Strong Woman and Olive Tree</I> (Samos, Greece), reproduced from <a href="9783868590692.html">Bastienne Schmidt: Home Stills</a>.German-born photographer Bastienne Schmidt (born 1961, now resident in the U.S.) challenges the popular idyll of household as private utopia with her Home Stills series. Posing in the role of lone housewife, and staging her works exclusively in Long Island, the artist recapitulates disconcertingly familiar scenarios excerpted from daytime TV. Following Highway 27 across Long Island from Patchogue to Easthampton, Schmidt recreates her interiors--from cheap motel rooms to upscale mansions--as imaginary rooms of her own, performing a dystopian twist on Virginia Woolf's eponymous idea of a feminist haven. Recalling the work of Cindy Sherman, Schmidt draws on such diverse visual influences as the films of Wim Wenders and the paintings and prints of Hokusai, Sigmar Polke, Jan Vermeer and Edward Hopper, to portray the alienated social contracts of a world of suburban fragmentation and loneliness.

FROM THE BOOK
"The narratives these photographs propose are open-ended, even open-sided, half a story without a perceptible closing half. They raise questions they do not deign to answer. If the scenes that go beyond a mere snippet of autobiography into the region of idea sprang from her imagination, they ask to enter ours. We may fill in the blanks ourselves or accept these as stories that end with a comma rather than a period. Yet one cannot miss the sense that a woman is mostly seen through a screen [of preconceptions] that clouds her image; she is unmistakably there but not often fully present. Working on the edge of ambiguity, Bastienne Schmidt can drive a point home still."

Vicki Goldberg ,excerpted from Bastienne Schmidt: Home Stills.
