Dagmar Schürrer – Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design degree show

  • 17 Jun 2011 — 23 Jun 2011

Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design is one of the most prestigious art colleges in the UK and is internationally known as a hotbed of creativity. This year Central Saint Martins hosts the very last degree show at the iconic Charing Cross Road site before moving to King’s Cross. Once again it will present innovative and challenging work across all media to a wide audience of the world of the arts, media and creative industries.


In my videos linear narrative is deconstructed and its elements re-contextualised to resemble a multidimensional, fragmented and simultaneous experience of time. Drawing on a large pool of references from art history and cinema I aim to reveal the apparatus behind the myth of the apparent necessity of a coherent narrative. Through combining found and my own footage I emphasize the relativity of the image-content and negate the significance of its originality: The importance of a definite past, present or future is undermined. Influenced by experimental writing and early film montage I try to develop a language, which stands outside the clarity of signification, linearity, coherence and sometimes even logical comprehension, so that the multidimensional structure allows the viewer to be part of the narrative. Furthermore the viewer is then able to define his position as within a network of references that provoke memory, perception, recollection and actual narrative happening.
