Dominik Ritszel

Dominik Ritszel moves between film and video-art. He is inspired by human gesture: pure, repeatable and primal, sometimes just the gesture in itself.
A theme that often occurs in his works is an empty landscape or an anonymous space, in which the characters usually wander aimlessly or look for something, trying to find €anything to do.
His films are devoid of dialogue and silence prevails in them, creating an uneasy atmosphere of menace. The presented reality seems to be suspicious, and each of the heroes’ actions accidental.
