In her recent work Sandra Krasker has chosen to combine two mediums, video and drawing.
Through the video “Verser l’offrande” Sandra Krasker conducts research on the representation of the idol who embodies the transmission, the forgotten heroine of history: the mother.
The story is created in the Spain of the thirties where the dreams of youth and freedom of young women through political ideologies will give way to a survival imposed by the civil war.
The dimension of time appears with a montage mixing a photo of the grandmother of the artist, revolutionary and embodying the dream of a utopia, heroines of unknown wars recovered from the archives of the Spanish Civil War, an extract from « Tristana of Buñuel », and scenes of life of the artist’s mother, including her marriage.
From this video, Sandra Krasker creates drawings, image by image to show one second, cf. the drawing “Immaculée” 80x80cm. This drawing is a sequence comprising 25 images and therefore the exact physical representation of one second but that can be stopped forever by the stroke : One second of eternity on paper, one second which emerges from the past and coming out of our space-time.
This video approach mixed with drawing and photography is therefore a reappropriation of what escapes the artist, the desire to retain life in a flow of information and events.
