Video, HD, 14 min, Sound/ 2013
Out of a dark background, two hands with white archival gloves are gently touching and exploring different ethnologic objects. However, the objects are blackened and therefore not visible before the dark background, forming an empty space between the hands which nevertheless appears to be firmly enclosed.The shapes of the objects are only visible when the gloved hands are touching them, while the occurring sound of contact foreshadows their different material surfaces.
