stairs


stair love, 2011
hd video, ca. 4:50 min


A cat is unhappily in love with some stairs. A short, but dearly love against the backdrop of a droning interpretation of „Je t‘aime... moi non plus“. The music fades out, when the cat and a dog having a conversation. They talk about the nature of love in general and about the one between the cat and the stairs in particular. The cat is quoting from Charles Fourier‘s utopian writings: „nature wants a multiplicity of pleasures ... hence has invented love to endlessly multiply social relations.“ The dog isn‘t convinced yet...
