In which, the notebook of Pauline Fargue is presented, connecting the underground temporality and the perpetual present. The music is edited by Feelies. Montage paces and the dances are precisely presented in the form of pages, which is a unique technique.

Artist name: ILKA KRAMER
Title: Landscape with anemone
Length: 10 min 04s.
The video “Landscape with anemone missing” shows another understanding of nature, inspired by the Chinese word of landscape “mountain-water”. There is a correlation between the up and down, the immobile and the movement, between what has form and what is without form. These different elements of nature relate to each other and create a tension, which allows the spectator to have a more physical and emotional approach to landscape.
