Giving the title to the show is the two-part video installation My Stage is Your Domain
, specially developed for the MAK: within minimal narrative structures Truttmann portrays artist friends of hers in cryptic quotes, constructs subtly composed image spaces and stages (my stage), which are occupied and infused with life by the protagonists through their actions and characteristics (your domain). Oscillating between staged photography and moving sequences, the artist, in surreal, poetic imagery, pursues the trail of foreign images, self-images and projections. The artists acting in the video installation—all women—worked on performances for the exhibition to be presented on the evening of the opening: Verena Dürr will show Ellipse and Nina Frgic Mother Beast and her Savage Daughters.
Excerpt of the exhibition text by curator Marlies Wirth

German exhibition text
Titelgebend ist die speziell anlässlich der MAK-Ausstellung entwickelte zweiteilige Videoinstallation My Stage is Your Domain: Innerhalb minimaler Erzählstrukturen porträtiert Truttmann befreundete Künstlerinnen in angedeuteten Zitaten, baut subtil komponierte Bildräume bzw. Bühnen (my stage), die von den Protagonistinnen durch ihr Wirken und ihre Charakteristika besetzt und belebt werden (your domain). Oszillierend zwischen inszenierter Fotografie und bewegten Sequenzen macht sich die Künstlerin in surreal poetischer Bildsprache auf Spurensuche nach Fremdbildern, Selbstbildern und Projektionen. Die in der Videoinstallation agierenden Künstlerinnen entwickelten zur Ausstellung Performances, die einmalig am Eröffnungsabend präsentiert werden: Verena Dürr Ellipse und Nina Frgic Mother Beast and Her Savage Daughters.
