Rick Niebe (visual artist)

MA in semiotic of Cinema at Pisa University, he works as an autonomous artist.

His research as videomaker consists in a minimal and epigrammatic experimental re-use of audio visualfound objects.

Interested in a critical 'detournement' of rough materials from the "mediascape" he focuses his attention onordinary anonymous images as well as on fragments from cinematographic history.

His work of de-construction of narrative devices, and re contextualization of visual elements, aims to disorient and estrange the viewer playing a game between memory and formation of new meanings.
