In this short documentary we questioning meaning of abstract contemporary art for usual (not professionals, critiques, friends etc) people.
Quite often artist create their art in their studios and believe in the meanings they bring to the society. There is also a concept: “If you, as an artist, do something honest – people will understand what you’re doing”.
Without trying to deny this believes nevertheless we want to check it ourselves by taking dance as an example.
We create an abstract contemporary dance phrase (as honest as we can) and go with our piece of art outside. Without planning the result we tried to gather the range of reactions and thoughts of people in 4 minutes and a half.
