BLEIERNE ZEIT/LEADEN TIME. {Spine title: Brigitte Waldach.} Distanz Verlag, Berlin, 2013. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Die Gestalten Verlag, Berlin, through Prestel Publishing, New York. 128 pp. (2 foldout) with 63 ills. (36 col.). 29 x 25 cm. ISBN 9783954760114 Bilingual in German and English.
Publisher's description: The title of the book, "Bleierne Zeit/Leaden Time," refers to Margarethe von Trotta's 1981 film of the same title, from which Brigitte Waldach took the story of the terrorist Gudrun Ensslin and translated it into her own art. After numerous drawings revolving around the Baader-Meinhof Gang, most of them in red gouache and red pigment pen, she started in 2011 to make graphite and lead pencils -- and hence, in a sense, lead as a material as well -- the basis of her visual worlds. In terms of motifs, her work also draws inspiration from Lars von Trier's movies and David Foster Wallace's writings. Letters and text no longer operate on the level of content, conveying information, but instead become a pictorial form in their own right. While working on her large-format drawings on laid paper, Waldach frequently also creates art in three dimensions, as in her installation for the German federal parliament. Waldach's work allows us to discover a new iconography of time between film, image, symbol, and language.
