Karø Goldt’s video tulipa, like the previous films in her abstract plant-film series, concentrates on the formal interplay between colour and sound. For this, Goldt once again uses a digital flower picture as the starting point for her cinematic conversation. The picture is disaggregated into its chromatic components and then transferred to an abstract stripe pattern. Thus, in tulipa, too, not much remains of the romantic genre of the flower picture, other than the title and the electronically scanned colour values of the original picture. (Marc Glöde)
Karø Goldt was born in 1967 in Günzburg. In 1998, she graduated from the School for Artistic Photography, Vienna. From 2000 to 2005 she received many grants for Cité des Arts in Paris, New York, and many of her projects. Since 1998 she participates in numerous exhibitions and festival screenings. All her videos are based on photographs. Some are scans of experimental prints, others are computer-manipulated.
