«Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing, there is a field. I’ll meet you there.” Rumi
The video represents a dream, a meditation embodying an idea that came in a dream. Dreaming, and in that it is similar to art – is another reality, which exists according to its own laws, equally available and so little explored by people. Things in that reality are often different from what we are used to, and actions are absurd, have new meanings or are meaningless.
The focus of the video is an absurd action – mowing down grass in a field with axes. The picture’s hypnotizing rhythmic work and beauty is deceptive: women perform hard work on the field covered with cold morning dew. What is happening? Each viewer may decide it in his/her own way. One will see women that make their way and fate, with different pressure and attitude. Another will note a desperate and tenacious action bound to failure, as weeds are inexterminable, so similar to the way so many live their lives.Somebody else will notice the grandeur and beauty of the morning field and how it argues and asserts its leading role in what is going on. Doing their work, women are moving away from our field of vision.
