“The problematic relation between a woman’s daily routine and her creative everyday is dramatically highlighted through the flight into a secluded room – in which the stakes of her art will be proven. It is in this room apart that Akerman performs rituals of order and disorder, as if carrying out a continuous aesthetic experiment. This room is especially charged with an obsessive quality that points to a central problematic in her films: the autonomous person.”

An afternoon filming in Tirana, Albania; going up and down the pyramid. Kids proudly show us their urban playground, climbing to the top, ruling their city.

Set in a natural reserve, the film treats the frame as a path, guiding the spectator’s eye, like the wanderer is guided along sights. However, the cinematic frame hits the tension between the rough landscape and its cultivation.

Katrien Vermeire drew inspiration from the encyclopedic film Fadenspiele (1969), part of the German film series Encyclopaedia Cinematographica by H.R. Haefelinger. Touwfiguren shows two children making string figures. It focuses on the practice as a game and pays attention to the movements and the action.
