In her photographic sequences, videos, installations, light and shadow projections Liddy Scheffknecht explores the relation between temporality and perception. The temporality of photographic standstills are elaborately expanded through video projections. The result is a hybrid of the static and the moving image which intertwines the photographic and the filmic medium in surprising new ways. Besides computer based image techniques the artist uses sunlight as a plastic material; analogue light and shadow projections that are created through direct solar irradiation.
Liddy Scheffknecht lives and works in Vienna. Her works were presented in solo shows at Kunsthalle Nexus Saalfelden, Georg Kargl Fine Arts Vienna, the Galerie der Stadt Wels and at the Kunsthaus Graz. She participated in numerous group shows, including the Albertina, Vienna, the Edith-Russ-Haus für Medienkunst in Oldenburg, the 4th International Sinop Biennial in Turkey, the Tokyo Wonder Site Hongo in Tokyo and in the 2nd Moscow International Biennial for Young Art.
