Storyline

Objects and characters are cut loose from habitual meanings, also from tensions and gravitational limitations. Such a portrait seems necessary from time to time to remind us that equilibrium and harmony are possible, and that we will not dissolve into a jelly if we allow ourselves to relax into them: A horseman rides through the landscape, through the town, but never arrives anywhere in particular. An acrobat swings on a rope above a canal in Venice, and is content just to swing there. Nothing threatens to disturb them. Written by Peter-Patrick76 (peter-patrick@mail.com)
