The Steadfast Soldier

An audio / visual installation: The soundtrack recounts from childhood memory the fairytale story of the Steadfast Soldier.
It starts confidently, but there is growing confusion over the details: The soldier returns to the ballerina doll but does he then tumble into the fire and melt?
The remembered story becomes an analogy for the existential question of fate (and god) suggested by the happy version and the nihilism of the tragic ending.
A looped, rear projected cine-film depicts a cooks hands kneading bread: a visual analogy for fate.
