The Historical Pose - A Look at Contemporary Women Artists

In her first monograph "FEEL THE BODY", Viennese photo artist Judith Stehlik portrays
50 Austrian female artists from a wide range of disciplines and across all generations, thus showing a representative cross-section of the contemporary art scene. Since 2013, in her multi-year photo and film project, she has invited these women artists to engage with images of historical figures. First, a specific pose was selected. The working process began with the creation of instant analog images in order to precisely recreate the pose together. The new gesture developed in this way finds its realization in the timelessly classic SW studio portrait. Judith Stehlik's work is concluded with a three-minute Super 8 B/W film, also a portrait, whereby the artist, without any influence or model, is left entirely to her own devices. The psychological portrait of a person according to external features such as posture and gaze has been one of the great questions ever since the invention of photography, also for Judith Stehlik:

What constitutes a female portrait or a historical pose?
What kind of representation of women does it create?
How does the past characterize itself in photographic representation?

As the title of the book makes clear, the models' portraits are about an exploration of their feelings in a heightened perception of their own bodies. By creating the possibility of appropriating historical poses for their own examination of the self, the models can thus openly entrust themselves to the act of becoming photographic images in the protective cloak of their chosen models. This opens up spaces for self-dramatization in which the individual expressiveness of each character can unfold.

Judith Stehlik, *Vienna. Works as a photographer and cinematographer. Her focus lies in the approximation of the representation of the non-visible and the atmospheric. Her artistic work is based on analog photography and film.
