Power

Power

1999, 16 mm film / video, 4 min 15 sec

Two persons are boxing, a young woman without a shirt and a big man. The black and white image and the timeless space make the atmosphere dream like though the hard action and sounds refer to real life and pain. Power is a statement against the power relations in our society but it can be seen as a symbolic battle for life and surveying through it.
