Saskia Olde-Wolbers

The video works by Saskia Olde-Wolbers, are haunting and engaging narratives. Slow motion, highly symbolic montages are set against melodramatic voice overs. Made with imagery that is a simplified surrealism, they look as though they were computer generated, however they are intricately constructed and set up with analogue techniques. I think that makes a huge difference to the final aesthetic, especially when you compare works like Placebo and Interloper to Day-Glo, which was computer generated.
