Vienna, Austria – With her exhibition at the Secession, video artist Saskia Olde Wolbers is showing a selection of her work in Austria for the first time, including the new piece Pareidolia (2011). Since the mid- 1990s, she has been developing fictional documentaries that hover somewhere between illusion and reality.Her surreally bizarre narratives are driven by a combination of dream-like imagery – meticulously handmade model worlds – and the apparent inner monologue of the voiceover in the audiobook-like soundtracks. On view through 21 August at the Secession in Vienna.
