Martina Sauter transacts ambiguous investigations into film and photography. The interaction between the visual components sets of a media reflection and generates narratives crossing the domains of fiction and non-fiction. Combining a recently taken photograph with a film still she creates unprecedented ›mise en scene‹, uncanny interiors, metaphysical in nature. Some images involve characters, others are devoid of them, revealing peripheral traces, fragments and rooms. Her work seduces the viewer in atmospheres of intrigue and suspense. The pleasure of observing, together with the emotional implications associated with the position as spectator, pervade all of Martina Sauter’s work weaving behind her images like an all-embracing law that places the conventional view of everyday things into a perspective imbued with suspense.
