Olaf Breuning

by Xavier Speeleveld

 

The oeuvre of  Olaf Breuning can be categorized as a species of performance art — staged, produced, and carefully directed to achieve a very specific photographic, often humorous result. In the case of ‘color wheels’, the swiss visual artist has introduced a familiar toy into the scene — a pinwheel — the humble, childhood apparatus made of a folded colored paper attached to a stick at its axle with a pin. when blown on by a person or the wind, complex whirlings take place, materializing as kaleidoscopic blurs in space. Breuning sets up a series of the rotating rainbows fixed to rigid horizontal and vertical beams. All at once the wheels are spun, and the ensuing image captured is a whimsical and surrealistic, yet manmade, vision.
