Kick the flower, 2013

video 3'10"


On the presupposition that play is just play, we can follow its rules even if they are absurd or unreasonable ones.  I focused attention on the moment where play exert influence on the actual living through that, and explored the borderline between play and the facts of life. Then I tried to devise a play based on plactical rules of human realations.

This video is a doument of a play where a partner kept on kicking a bunch of flower asking too much or for impossible (e.g. Bring it within 3 second, Gather all petals right now, Forget all happenings during this game!), and her pertner also kept picking it up fulfilling her wishes.
