Former Studio Artist from March 2016 – February 2017
Viktoria Schmid, born in 1986, studied Filmtheory at the University of Vienna and graduated in 2014 with a master’s degree from the University of Art in Linz.
Schmid works at the interface of cinema and exhibition space: She started to create films especially made to be screened in the cinema. Due to the limitations of this setting she got interested in transferring the conditions of the dispositif cinema into the exhibition space and at the same time embracing the special conditions of showing moving image in the exhibition space. The different mediums she uses, like 16mm-film,video and photography are the co-authors of her work – she enjoys that their specific characteristics are forming her pieces.
Viktoria Schmid left her studio at Korbergasse for a one-month residency at the Djerassi Artist Program in Woodside, California (made possible by Land NÖ, AIR Krems).
