Uncertain Horizon I. 2011. Installation. 2 swinging objects & 2 puppets, 2 drawings on paper. Courtesy of the artist

There are two swinging objects in this installation. One of them swings a paper with a drawing of a woman on it and the other is of a man. They soar parallel and they look at an uncertain horizon. Two mysterious puppets (a little boy and a little girl) are leaning against the swings. When we see the swing from the backside, we see just a white paper and we don't know what’s behind it… the paper can be held up by people and the audience themselves.
