the works of Petra Zanki
Holding on to (2009.)

Duration: 30

The bodies in this piece are never at ease. They never find stability, repose or a point of balance. They constantly need to redefine who and where they are. They are vertical bodies, never touching the ground but with their feet, struggling to remain standing yet at the same time always moving. They persist to live in a constant space of turbulence.
