STOP MOTION
PLAMEN SOLOMONSKI – 2013

An absolutely simple object marks out a new stretch of trail and creates a short circuit. An oversized broom placed out of context, which looks like those sorghum brooms capable of carrying the flying flight witches who once inhabited also the Ledro Valley, or used by women to sweep out their dusty houses. We have no idea what sort of creature could use this huge implement, but the vigour with which the soil has been cleaned has left a groove, a track that opens a breathing space where new flowers can grow. A powerful still image that is nonetheless in continuous transformation, where nature produces its work-in-progress by taking possession of the space produced by the restorative action of the broom, in a series of steps that progress frame by frame, as in a stop-motion sequence.
