Project Description

Stefan

Curt Faudon and his team spent more than two years together with Stefan Szczesny, the artist ­ painter, exhibition organizer, publisher, ceramic artist, stage designer who also has numerous other functions, all in one.

They were with Szczesny in his studio, during his artistic work, on the Caribbean island of Mustique as well as in St. Tropez on the Côte d’Azur, in Cologne and in New York and documented his exhibitions in Cannes and Seville.

However, the outcome is far more than a mere documentary. It is a comprehensive work of art in itself, using film as a medium in the interaction of light, colour, rhythmic cuts, sound, music and of course Szeczsny’s paintings to evoke certain moods and to convey art.

In this way, the viewer can take part in the life of the artist and witness his creative process.

Broadcasted on the German TV station 3sat.
