Johann Lurf

Born in 1982 in Vienna, Austria, where he lives and works.

12 Explosionen shows a series of tableaux filmed in Vienna at night. Before the big bangs occur, the locations selected for them resemble crime scenes: There are shots of dimly lit footpaths, deserted parking lots, a pedestrian bridge made of steel, all with a central perspective. These places are virtually waiting for something to happen and from the film’s title we know that soon something will. After a brief period of quiet, something blows up at each plac, and the sound is accompanied by a simultaneous shot of the same scene from a different angle.
