A Story of an Encounter without Words about watching each other with curiosity.
Paul Duyvis - Guilin girls7:30, 1996, Video Art
The beautiful music comes from a cassete given to me by a traditional Singer living in Inner Mongolia. I heard the woman singing and I was moved. She saw it and gave me a cassete with her songs. A few days later these Guilin Children jumped upon me with a generous smile.
I decided to combine these two precious gifts to memorize these moments of communication without words. Listening to them still makes me feel good and than I wonder what happened to the young girls and the Mongolian woman singer.
