Split Seconds Of Magnificence

Lydia Schouten

Netherlands, UK, 1984
15 minutes, Colour

‘Split seconds of magnificence’ had perhaps best be described as an adventure video work. Women experience exciting adventures about which they have been fantasizing since their childhood days. Here the most wonderful thing is that death is no obstacle: in the event of someone dying, the adventures simply continue in another world. A dream world.
