Knife – Relations ! is the first sequence of a series of experimental video-performances by Hsin-Ying Tsai and Johannes Gérard. It´s a silent metaphor about relations, transmission, inner strife, hurting yourself combined with a hidden inside anger against yourself and others. Plus the apparent absence of any visible and invisible transmission. However the transmission and relation aspects are also valid for the differences between cultures.
