Mother

2008,  HDV 16:9,  Video film,  Duration: 5 min 10 sec,  edition: 3

The artists ZATORSKI + ZATORSKI spent 3 days filming with the body of their recently deceased Grandmother. There is a dialogue between the lace-bound woman and a spider: the long, lithe limbs of the creature mirror the splindly, nimble, industrious fingers of the old lady. The spider carefully caresses each fold of lace as though spinning and weaving its way across the fabric. Spiders are regarded as symbols of the soul freed from the body, and as intermediaries between the two worlds of the human and the divine reality.
