Benoit Pailley presents this collaboration with Italian artist Andrea Bianconi and stylist Alice Bertay. With this assignment for Double, Pailley brought to life Bianconi’s art practice of sculpture, collage and painting. Bianconi invents costume accessories in the manner of his work that reveal his preoccupations (paranoia, fantasia and escapism) while Bertay styles his cast of characters. Like his sculptures, Bianconi, now the subject, is posed in a gallery environment of gray floor and white wall, while Pailley assumes the role of artist and manipulates his form/model into contortions that are surreal, humorous and bizarre.
For BRANSCH artist Steffen Jagenburg, it is always a magical moment when sound and motion add to the feel of his imagery. It is like giving life your own expressions.
It is a beautiful, welcome challenge to cover content in two different visual ways: still and motion. Steffen's numerous clients look for that - someone to use the same language in film and photography, combined with Steffen's great aesthetic sensibility and attitude.
BRANSCH artist Sven Schrader introduces his new showreel. It containes footage of several movie projects that he produced over the last two years. It shows his diverse work for advertising, music videos and private short films. As multifaceted with his motion as he is with his still photography, Sven's aesthetic informs both.
