The artist films exhibited in the international group show all share a continuous aspiration toward balance. The focus is on body and movement, particularly the limbo between losing and finding one’s balance. The characters portrayed are bound in their states of pursuit, a lingering mood of uncertainty.

The techniques, rhythms and devices exposed with the works share a common part in momentum – inertia or impetus, which could mean both losing and beginning something, a test of strength, a process of growth. It is a drive to compete; not necessarily to defeat an opponent, but rather to test boundaries so as to gain an understanding of oneself and how to be together, to achieve synchronicity.

The spatial set-up of the exhibition is based on the timed presentation of the works, which directs the movement and gaze of the exhibition visitor, and allows for an active viewing. The installative framework also brings the personal stories of the works physically closer to the viewer.
