_about the character
_Stefanie Schneider

STEVIE is developed, played and co-written by Stefanie Schneider, written by Radha Mitchell and JD Rudometkin.

Stefanie Schneider's scintillating situations take place in the American West. Situated on the verge of an elusive super-reality, her photographic sequences provide the ambience for loosely woven story lines and a cast of phantasmic characters.

Schneider works with the largely uncontrollable chemical mutations of expired polaroid film stock. Chemical explosions of color spreading across the surfaces undermine the photograph's commitment to reality and induce her characters into trance-like dreamscapes. Like flickering sequences of old road movies Schneider's images seem to evaporate before conclusions can be made - their ephemeral reality manifesting in subtle gestures and mysterious motives. Schneider's images refuse to succumb to reality, they keep alive the confusions of dream, desire, fact, and fiction.

Stefanie Schneider received her MFA in Communication Design at the Folkwang Schule Essen, Germany. Her work has been shown at the Staedtische Ausstellungshalle am Hawerkamp, Muenster, the Kunstallianz, Berlin, the Institut für Neue Medien, Frankfurt, and the Nassauischer Kunstverein, Wiesbaden, Kunstverein Bielefeld, Kunstverein Recklinghausen, Museum für Moderne Kunst Passau.

Daisy's melodies are unique, potent and penetrating. There is a sweetness in the simplicity of her songs, in the vulnerable sincerity of her delivery, and in the ever-so-perfectly placed moments of profound lyrical prowess that cut straight to the heart and the soul and the spirit.

We are delighted to present Daisy McCrackin life in concert for the first time in Germany.

Daisy recorded thirteen live, acoustic songs for frequent collaborator, filmmaker Stefanie Schneider's feature film, "29 Palms." The soundtrack, "Till Death Do Us Part," marks Daisy's first musical release, and is available on CD and as a collector's piece in vinyl in Germany.

You are cordially invited to "reinforce the randomness of life" and immerse your senses into the surreal wonderland of Stefanie Schneider's photographs...
“(Stefanie's photos) reinforce the randomness of life: the frisson that happens when you pass by someone you may have met in a dream; the way relationships begin and end and the way they occasionally, miraculously, work out...She suggests that all we can do is point out basic truth, marvel at our brain’s architecture, revel in the found beauty…We can gawk at the Polaroid’s chemical burns that resemble starbursts in the day sky in the same way we can acknowledge without understanding someone’s fleeting interest in a stranger. In other words, we can relate." --James Scarborough, Frieze Magazine

The exhibition is sponsored by Malibu Magazine & Green Truck (organic food delivery)

»Stefanie Schneider - Sidewinder«

Freitag, 04.04.2008, 19.00 Uhr
Dauer der Ausstellung:
05.04.2008 - 31.05.2008

Eröffnungsredner: Gusztáv Hámos, Medienkünstler, Berlin

Der fotografische Zyklus „sidewinder“ entstand während eines fünfwöchigen Aufenthalts von Stefanie Schneider im entlegenen Ort 29 Palms, CA. In der Abge- schiedenheit der kalifornischen Wüste lässt die Künstlerin – Regisseurin und Akteurin zugleich - sich auf ein riskantes Experiment ein: Thema der Aufnahmen ist die Begegnung mit einem ihr zuvor unbekannten Mann. Die Fotogra- fien vermitteln die spannungsvolle Beziehung zwischen Nähe und Distanz, Vertrautheit und Fremdheit.

Die fotografische Erzählung folgt zwar einer Art Drehbuch, bleibt aber offen für eigene Assoziationen und nicht steuerbare Prozesse. Dabei bewegt sich Stefanie Schneider an den Schnittstellen von Fotografie und Film.

Das abgelaufene Polaroid-Material vermittelt den Fotografien durch Störungen, Fehler und Leerstellen eine malerisch poetische Qualität. Die motivischen Hintergründe sind der Hollywood-Traumfabrik ent- nommen. Die Fragmentierung und Auflösung der sich zwischen Traum und Rausch entfaltenden Bilder nimmt die Clichés des American Dream auf, um sie in Frage zu stellen und gleichzeitig ihre anhalt- ende Faszination spürbar werden zu lassen.

Der neu erschienene Katalog 29 Palms, CA - Pocket Polaroids Series # 004 (signiert) ist ab sofort bei uns erhältlich.

Salzburger Festspiele 2008 (poster and annual program of this year’s Salzburg Festival

“For love is as strong as death” – this motto, taken from King Salomon’s Song of Songs, is at the programmatic center of the Salzburg Festival in 2008. The artist Stefanie Schneider, who lives in Berlin and Los Angeles, is spurred to her work by this irresolvable connection between love and death. The dramatic tension between Eros and Thanatos, which has inspired literature, art and theater for centuries, takes on an unsettling forcefulness in her photographic cycles.
