Anna Bertsch

(Born and resident in Austria).

She views herself in equal measure as a film maker and a visual artist, and she developed her style based partly on technology, partly on musical impressions. From concrete objects to the animation of abstract elements, she creates a homogenous, gradually developing image. As a vj, she works to serve  music without forfefeiting her own independence. Subtle changes give rise to structural transformations along with layers which are thematically ordered and used multiple times. The basic element of photography represents something of a “stop-motion” rhythm while also being developed further into fluid animations. In her films, the theme of the narrative is incorporated into the techniques used. In this way, her stories play out in white spaces in lack of assistance in orientation, while the image is divided and palpably shifted, with shots in extreme slow motion supporting the situation.
