The poetry of power is celebrated in Piaffe, as a white horse is held in check, repeating a technically - expert dressage movement, that originally was developed to keep cavalry horses at a point of constant anticipation and constant readiness. Yet the strength of the piece is its poignant fragility: a delicate, and deliberately small projection, the horse is nothing but a thin ray of light, and all that pent up power endlessly repeats, never to be released, never to find a purpose. It plays with the idea of the so called (new) subjectivities; things are rapidly shifting and changing. We are and must be in a constant state of readiness for the next shift.
We have infinitely more possibilities than previous generations. Each decade is changing faster than the previous one, especially since digital technologies have become ubiquitous. What does that mean for the subject of the second decade in the 21st century to be in a constant state of readiness?
