In an idyllic Alpine landscape of forests and meadows women are lying naked in high grass; each is posed as they would be if drawn from life by a painter.

A man, whose uncertainty an loneliness are palpable, approaches each woman individually, one after the other, caressing and making erotic overtures, at times tenderly, at others more overtly.

With minimalist staging devices, the artist opens a discourse on the forms of aphasia between the sexes, between body and intellect, between the emotional and the rational, between nature and culture, between one world and another.
-Anke Hoffmann

With text is based on the book “Theory of Communicative Action“ by Jürgen Habermas
