Playing Fields of Life
The stage sets of our daily togetherness have many faces. They wait patiently for us to enter them and fill them with life. Whether squares, bridges, terraces or soccer fields, each terrain stipulates its own rules, attracts different groups and invites one to take part in different activities. Nicola Schudy explores these unwritten rules and events with a preference for places that elude our general attention: rural soccer fields, urban wasteland, or even hunting blinds in the forest. She uses these architectural phenomena as projection surfaces for associations and thoughts and binds them to questions of homeland and identity. The photo series of village soccer goalposts throughout Europe evoke not only images of rural idylls and communities, but also of homeland and youth. The bias for the theatrical is also found in her other artistic activities. Nicola Schudy, who works closely with theater and film, creates thematically dense works, installations out of objects, photography, drawings and moving images. This is expanded with her work in film, as she has worked with set design for Peter Greenaway and in theater, for Christoph Schlingensief.
