Haircut Virginia Mori

A pupil and a teacher, alone in a bare classroom. On the surface this is about the girl’s hairdo. But what exactly is it that unfolds around the long pigtail: a power game, a showdown, or just a fantasy?

A pupil and a teacher, alone in a bare classroom. On the surface this is about the girl’s hairdo. But what exactly is it that unfolds around the long pigtail: a power game, a showdown, or just a fantasy? Virginia Mori spent a year drawing with pencil and ballpoint pen on paper. Her 3,000 drawings, set to Andrea Martignoni’s music, are condensed into a melancholy and dreamlike chamber play about power and submission.

A winter landscape in Spain, hunters are crossing the field, bare shrubs stand out against the sky. In her atmospheric animation Isabel Herguera gathers a dreamy company of humans and animals around the table, set to the melancholy sound of a guitar. “Love me without talking” – silence unites, even evokes the mythical past and, quite in passing, joins painting and cut-out. A passionate appeal to listen to one’s interior and not to the murmur of the world.
