Ratlos / Indomitable I – V

In five large-scale prints, Matt Saunders works with portraits of the fictional movie character Leni Peickert, who appears in two films by German director Alexander Kluge. The character offers a reflection on a historical moment of feminism. Saunders uses a visual doubling, a hand-drawn overlapping of frames rendered in soap ground, to visualize the character’s inner state. The instability of the ground and time-based action of the acid led to images that are, in one-way, stable combinations of multiple frames and in another way irreconcilable, suspended in flux.
