Landscape in gestures

Helene Thümmel

The piece shows individual memories of the landscape recorded in gestures. Hands move up and down, they follow streets and path, the flow over rivers, the move underground and upwards. The hands draw the gesture back in the landscape, in the moment of memorizing it. There is no script and no retry.
