51 Paintings is the first instalment of the 51 Paintings Suite filmed between 2006-2012 in Germany, England and Australia by director Shaun Wilson. After visiting the medieval St Michael’s Church in Schwabisch Hall, Wilson recreated 51 characters found in the displayed religious paintings into other places of historical note with actors, friends and other film makers playing out the idea of the ‘memory’ of each painting nested in each new segment. There are no words spoken, only moving paintings and is meant to be experienced, not understood. This experimental, non-narrative film plays out the notions of slowness as a means of cinematic device by exploring the poetic links between
memory, art and time..
