BORIS ELDAGSEN 'THE PROMISE' www.eldagsen.com/promise.htm Night Projection Window Every night after dark The Promise questions what we think we know about expectation and salvation. A woman is standing, waiting, her right hand held up, expecting something to come from above. She shows signs of exhaustion, her eyes water and her hand slightly shakes. On her left shoulder sits a mysterious bird. When her hand reaches towards the bird, it flies away. She goes back into her waiting position, hoping for something to arrive. Nothing happens. Her hand reaches back a second time, touching her empty shoulder. When she returns to wait, the bird appears out of the blue, sitting on her left shoulder as if it had never disappeared. This silent videowork is a one-woman-show for renowned German actress Sandra Hüller who won numeours awards at international film festivals for her role as a possessed girl in the movie Requiem. "The door to happiness opens inwards. Anyone who tries to push this door open thereby causes it to close still more." Sören Kierkegaard
