Where is Mrs. Ray? — Viktoria Schmid & violet

Opening on Friday 9 June from 18:00 to 21:00. The exhibition is on view until 8 July 2023.
Open on Friday and Saturday from 14:00 to 18:00 and by appointment.

Viktoria Schmid works at the interface of the cinematic and the exhibition space. Schmid studied at the Friedl-Kubelka-School, received her BA in film theory from the University of Vienna and her MA from the University of Art in Linz. Her installations and films have been shown internationally.

‘Schmid’s work makes us inevitably aware that a space is always different at different times, that space is ‘time-space’. This is particularly striking in the series time flies. We see the same part of a room, a detail, captured in a series of images taken at specific time intervals. The differences in the individual images reveal how time is constantly redefining the space through the light. As a result, the work also fulfils fundamental premises of cinema that are characteristic of the artist’s entire oeuvre.’ (from ‘Time Spaces’ (Zeit-Räume) by Siegfried A. Fruhauf)

Where is Mrs. Ray? is a presentation of work by Viktoria Schmid & violet, and part of Liesbet Grupping’s artistic research, supported by the Flemish government and shown in chapters at violet.
