10b/65 Silver - Action Brus

"Action" by Günter Brus. At first Kren did not want to show the film, because the image is underexposed. A copy of the negative material turned out to be better than the original material and so Kren did show the film. The film´s title relates to Brus´ use of silver paper for his action.
(Hans Scheugl)

In the films Kren made during the Günter Brus "Actions", plasticity is expunged. In contrast to the Muehl films, the body stretches out of the material and because of this becomes more difficult to differentiate from its environment, from the other objects.
(Michael Palm)
