Greater Than




CATALOGUE TEXT
You take a risk when you leave your sheltering cocoon to step into the glaring light of the outside world. Especially when this world is made of long, stele-like white forms which move in unpredictable ways and threaten to grasp you. Herma meets a far bigger creature that speaks her language here. Each of them manages to climb a stele. Can their peculiar dialogue be continued despite the distance? A stylised puppet animation about self-liberation and its limits.

Nadja Rademacher
