Illusionary painting and colour concept by Hanna Schimek

SHIRLEY - VISIONS OF REALITY will bring to life fifteen paintings by the American painter Edward Hopper (1882 – 1967). Similar to tableaus vivants—a popular theatrical entertainment of the 19th century—the people depicted in Hopper’s paintings will become the protagonists in mini-dramas. The “snapshots” of the paintings will each be extended to a period of six minutes either before or after the events shown. The film will show the episodes - and Hopper’s reconstructed painting - chronologically over the course of one fictive day and night (excerpts: Gustav Deutsch)
