Jurgen Reble - Rumpelstilzchen (1989)


Obra de found footage de Reble perteneciente a su época del grupo Schmelzdahin, creada con metraje de una copia S8 de una película de serie B de los años 50, sobre el homónimo relato de los hermanos Grimm.

Rumpelstilzchen is not an exercise in meaningful, gratuitous deconstruction or recontextualisation; material distortions layer and abstract the images, the narrative is a fragmented, hazy, hallucinatory drama as images and voices loop and echo. This emphasises and reawakens the disturbing Gothic strangeness of the folk story. Imbued with a darker German romanticism filtered through post-industrial detritus, Rumpelstilzchen is in the time-honoured folkloric tradition of writing over; contemporary in its retelling, retaining traces of its earlier form.
