A FEW WORDS
Creatures wandering in time and space, with or without purpose. Dreams, goals, desires, actions, disappointments. And life goes on, one way or another. Beings living and moving, breathing and struggling, surviving and climbing by any means. Lonely beings but also interdependent. In units and groups they are moving forward through clashing rocks...chance encounters, fatal encounters...human beings craving for connection, whether for a night or for a lifetime. Communication, acceptance, rejection and all over again. Human beings, body and soul, matter that wants to transform into spirit. Capable for the greatest transcendence but also for the most painful descent. Beings full of contradictions and weaknesses but also full of limitless capabilities. Because if the history of mankind is, in a sense, a history of barbarism, in another sense it is a history of creativity, spirituality, solidarity, affection and imagination.
