Abstract:

Leipzig photographer Frank Berger brings together two projects, "Traffic Assistants" (Shanghai 2008) and "Theseus and Kentaur" (Vienna 2007) in this handsome slipcased two-volume set accompanying a museum exhibition. Comprised of extensive series of photographic images taken in a single setting, both projects depict variations of mundane dramas in identical frames. Shot in high-resolution on reversal color slide film and exhibited as projections, the pictures do not capture a "unique moment,"; but (in exhibition) are presented in an endless loop of similar but layered images, a method that perhaps can be described as a gesture of insistence. Human figures become heroic subjects of contemplation in "Theseus and Kentaur", or Chaplinesque figures in "Traffic Assistants", in which police in Shanghai try to control local traffic. Whatever the subject, the insistent look of the photographer transforms each setting into a visual stage, in which the static scenery outlasts the cast of characters.
