Sort of like a distilled and hushed version of all the landscape painting Gerhard Richter has done to date
2006, Video, 3:16 (Colour, Stereo)
As the title dictates, this work is an ironic and meaningful approximation of Gerhard Richter’s landscape works. This work plays off found footage of a small, stereotyped German town surrounded by forests. As music swells and the camera moves over the land, the image becomes progressively blurrier.
