Gold - The Dance

Gold is a precious metal that as a substance sets a standard for transitory things like money. In the video triptych Gold by Heer / Schmiedel, things are reversed: the transitory becomes golden, the fleeting images of an island near Capri, the iconic appearance of Villa Malaparte, fragments of Renaissance painting surface and disappear again in a gold sheen that illuminates a dance, a dream, a myth.
