Black Lead, 2006, 7:00 min, colour, sound [VIDEONALE.11]

Corine Stübi´s striking video work Black Lead is accompanied by the music piece of the same name by the British band Death in Vegas. Underscored by the psychedelic electro sound, the gloomy and cryptic images generate an ominous and mysterious atmosphere. In static takes and smooth tracking shots, viewers are offered mysterious scenes that are difficult to piece together into a coherent whole. By connecting motifs from crime stories, fairytales and myths, Stübi creates a surreal world in which familiar images lose their accustomed context. A golden football that rolls into the middle of the lane in an underground car park recalls the golden ball from the popular fairytale The Frog King. But instead of a frog, a girl dressed in a pink party dress appears in the asphalt underworld. In another sequence, a young woman comes onto the scene wearing an identical pink dress - possibly the same girl at a different age - and chases the ball. All of the action plays out in the same setting, the chronology broken up by jumps back and forth in time.
