Munich; Regina Schmeken at Villa Stuck “Unter Spielern – Die Nationalmannschaft “
by Venetia Kapernekas
Munich; Villa Stuck ; 15 June-14 September 2014
On Sunday, sept 14th, at 3.30 pm a walk thru with Regina Schmeken /Villa Stuck.
For Regina Schmeken is the representation of movement an essential part of her work. Her serial photographs focus on the crucial moment between standstill and action in football.
The toned body of players win by the black and white shots a sculptural quality, which is enhanced by an unusual composition and lighting. The artist here focuses entirely on the actors/players and her decisive moments draw graphically clear the complexity of the action sequences. She focuses on the protagonist and especially on the, often determining, apparent stillness, isolated from the complex sequence of movements.
The photographer accompanied the team to a total of 16 international matches from March 2011 until the end of the 2012 European Championship in Poland and Ukraine.
