LET THE WIND BLOW
DV on Digital Format, Duration: 04:13 min
From the top of a windy hill, two motionless figures overlook a valley with a big city. One is standing up, the other sits on the ground, the distance between them too large to evoke a sense of togetherness. With the employed video trick the day-and-night cycle is compressed to last merely a few minutes: the clouds race across the sky, the night falls like a brick and thousands of lights gleam at once in the valley before dawn breaks, the sun flies up and a new day begins. All the while, the two figures remain absolutely still before the unfolding scenery. Only the wind blows in their clothes and their hair. That is it; and it is that simple.
A new block of reality emerges with that touch of the wind, with its affections on a mineralized human body affecting the viewer: a new possible relationship, a different sensation of the body.
