Summer 2008 — On the Life of Death

The two artists Regula Engeler and Susa Gunzner edited and added sound to their film project «enigma (on a clear day you can see forever)» during their two months in the guest studio in the Sitterwerk in the summer. The key player in this film is Death - represented, following in a great iconographic tradition, as a skeleton moving nimbly through a forest that seems haunting and cozy at the same time -sometimes distinctly recognizable in its guise as death personified, and then again crouching in the undergrowth and hardly detectable - an often threatening but sometimes also quite warm-hearted friendly entity. The premiere of this film took place in the autumn in the Lokremise in St.Gallen.
