Exhibition: Friederike Pezold, Die schwarzweiße Göttin und ihre Leibhaftige Zeichensprache

April 30 to June 12, 1977. In 10-minute segments, Friederike Pezold shows various body parts on a screen, emphasizing them through black-and-white contrasts. She presents the female body as a graphic pattern in a cinematic setting. The video works are part of a larger systematic work complex that also includes drawings and photo series. The twelve video tapes are: foot work, vulva work, breast piece, thigh work, arm work, belly button piece, mouth work, eye work, finger piece, back work, knee work, nose piece—photo series, pen and ink drawings, and blueprints on cotton as scroll paintings. She explains the new embodied sign language of the black-and-white goddess in a workbook, published by the Staatliche Kunsthalle Baden-Baden.
