video, 4,02min / The upward movement of the camera in black and white is following across the field the nervous race of a person. The camera wants to “observe” the running person, to frame it, to show it, to discover it through its gaze, for the gaze’s sake. Little by little the image finds its colour. The obsessive rhythm of the music is accelerating to sufficiency while the race goes on, the focus point - the running legs, becoming the object of desire. What do we expect from our desires? Is this video capable of catching the pray? But where the race goes? The camera is unstable; it staggers, comes closer or immediately goes away, branch off, threatens to fall exactly like the bear legs of the running woman. Recorded at the grass level, the uneven trajectory of this race will it lead to a dead end?
