Composed of short vignettes in different techniques and materialities, UNTITLED SEQUENCE OF GAPS uses the form of an essay film to approach trauma-related memory loss via reflections on light outside the visible spectrum—on what is felt but never seen. Carefully shifting between planetary macro scales, physical phenomena and individual accounts of affective subject formation, the artist's voice considers violence and its workings, class and queerness not through representation but from within.
Vika Kirchenbauer is an artist, writer, and music producer. She examines violence as it attaches to different forms of visibility and invisibility. Her work has been presented in a wide range of contexts including Whitechapel Gallery, Tainan Art Museum, Berlinale, New York Film Festival, CPH:DOX, and Images Festival.
