CDF (Caspar David Friedrich)

CDF combines a historical scene with visual artificiality and slapstick-like movements to the music of Henry Purcell, played back at double speed. The protagonists are closer to Samuel Beckett than to Caspar David Friedrich. They are mute, seem grotesque and foreign, and eat, run, crawl, fall. Their only motor seems to be death, which however, due to the absurd-comic distortion of the images and the music, is itself only a farce.
