Streitross Meister der Kurve

On the motorcycling training grounds, various figures will be ridden, different perspectives recorded on video and concentrated in montage editing. The terrain-contingent space-time is transformed into a dynamic time-space. Driving instructors wear their zeitgeisty power garb, over which they wear traditional armour and carry medieval weapons; photos of them in various poses are taken. The armour’s angular shape constitutes a substantial artistic criterion by underlining the absurdity of the poses. A photographic survey of testosteron-heroic power play, pathos as expanded body, mixed from scurrility, eroticism and a tad of horror.
