Letzte LockerungDer KrampfFranzi<br/>Letzte LockerungDas Franzi-Gefühl (Ausschnitt aus Videoinstallation)

In her video Letzte Lockerung, Wibmer achieves the effects created by a cabinet of distorting mirrors at fun fairs by way of animation: a female body in grotesque distortions becomes the plaything of anonymous forces, and the artist refers to their context by way of pronouncedly optimistic pieces of music at the start and finish. Whenever the improvement of the human race is at issue, things spin easily out of control.
