Video performances, installations and interventions, costume and stage design are part of the manifold artistic praxis of Robert Sochacki. Since 2009 he also implements large-sized projections of architecture which are broaching the issue of “twilight” in its graphic as well as its allegorical quality. The contrasting “chiaroscuro” of expressionist film he is collaging with the sexual clichés of pin-up girls of the 1920s and with the idealized images of family displayed in advertisings up to the 1960s. Starting point and projection ground for these collages were architectural ensembles which emerged in the same period of time.
LichtRouten-Project: Orchestra in
Twelve tableaux that evoke the imagery of the first films are shown on the facade of “Haus Wiedenhof”.
LichtRouten-Site: Haus Wiedenhof
In the place Haus Wiedenhof is located today, there used to be the first rectory of Luedenscheid, presumably in the 9th or 10th Century. It was first mentioned in records in 1067. The parish grounds served as the economic basis for the parish, which could not exist without it. Since that time, the ground was always held by the Church. In the 19th and 20th century, it served as club house, hostel, hospital and soup kitchen. In 1977 the building was left to the Free Christian Youth community for their rehabilitation work with drug addicts, which still works here today.
