Magdalena Salner, *1987, lives and works in Vienna

The artistic focus of Magdalena Salner is on moving images. Her interest lies in the creation of the form in time. Rhythm and tempo play an important role in the image, such as the composition of the picture and the camera work itself. In her work she deals intensively with the conflict between the meaning and the power, which is attached to the images, and the actual void of the images. The artworks that arise from this background provoke the viewer to question his or her perception of the moving image. The immersive aesthetics and the manipulation of the material plays a crucial part in her artworks. Magdalena's artworks consist of experimental short films, room filling video installations, experimental 3D films and music videos.


Together with Manuel Baumer she founded the collective F.A.T. - form art time. The collective focuses on time-based art and its procedural form in the various disciplines.
