It Was Still Her Face

Christoph Girardet

It Was Still Her Face (Christoph Girardet)


Portraits of women, and the men who are spellbound by them. Painted portraits are revenants, omens of absence, metaphors for loss and death, objects of desire and fixation.


Christoph Girardet (Langenhagen, 1966) studied film and video at the Hochschule für Bildende Künste Braunschweig. He works primarily with found footage, often in collaboration with Matthias Müller; they have made over 14 films together. personne (2016) was screened in competition at l'Alternativa last year.
