The setting is the castle of Ettersburg near Weimar, which the artist was drawn to because of its dual history as both a summer residence of Goethe (who composed poems on its grounds) and a building overlooking the Nazi concentration camp of Buchenwald. In the video, a female figure, adorned in a costume from Goethe’s time, dances in an empty hall until collapsing to the floor. 

I discovered that I love drawing at the seaside, it’s so relaxing! These are my mom’s hands rapresented in different positions, she says she doesn’t like them because she has arthrosis but I like them anyway
