It`s all a dream

The video turns out to be a fantastic and dreamlike short story, inspired by the Argentinian author Julio Cortázar. To the collage-like montage of images and music by Eunice Martins, an off-screen voice recounts how butterflies enter a painter’s studio at night, venture inside the pictures and explore every corner of it with us. Schmid equals the studio with its works metaphorically to a treasure chamber. Lucidly, she reflects on origin, temporality, essentiality and mysteriousness of images and returns via painting to her beginnings.
