Retrieving memories in public places, spatializing language, as well as adapting and integrating film sequences and dialogues, are all themes that run like a red thread through Annja Krautgasser’s works.
"The video work Prelude depicts a picture puzzle that is playful and sharply focused at the same time. It offers numerous references to other media such as photography, architecture, other eras of moving pictures or to new technologies. The staged room comes into being solely through the motions of people pacing it and their behavior becomes all the more apparent as a frame of reference though its ‘invisibility’."
