Sarah Browne, The Invisible Limb, 2014. HD video, German audio with English subtitles, 19:30 minutes

The Invisible Limb is the third in a series of works that address issues of gendered labour and representation (with Peripherals and Something from nothing). This latest film is partly addressed to deceased Frankfurt artist Charlotte Posenenske, renowned both for her rigorous artistic oeuvre and her eventual cessation of art production in favour of practicing sociology, focusing on the study of wage labour conditions andfactory processes.

The film features another sculptor of Posenenske’s generation, born in the same year in fact; Irish stonecarver Cynthia Moran,with an entirely different political and artistic trajectory. Shot partly onlocation at the Giant's Causeway, Co. Antrim, the film stages a series ofunlikely correspondences through sculptural objects and ideas of mimesis,technology and the magic of apparently costless production.
