Description:

"Leaves" was shot in a public park in London. The video shows a meadow surrounded by trees as its theatrical protagonist. Susanne Bürner has conceived a publication of lose leaves in the nature of this spectacle. The publication provides reference material shifting between different formats, between, painting, film and landscape. Thirty copies are accompanied by a silver gelatine photograph representing the film location at a time of the year when there're almost no more leaves. Three exclusive editions are accompanied each by 5 silver gelatine photographs each with the characters of the video, the leaves, now dry. All hand-printed photographs (20.5 x 27 cm) are signed and numbered by the artist.
