"You are distant, pondering something that happened during breakfast while you were talking with your beloved one. Life is something that might turn its benevolence towards us in the glimpse of a moment, as we look the other way. The focal point of Salve Regina - one of four 'Marian antiphons' - is the plead to the gracious advocate Mary that she may turn her eyes of mercy towards us. The aim is to invoke a circular movement directed towards us. The essence of motion is temporal, as such, elusive. This is not a picture."

This video (1 of 7) is part of a one and a half hour long visual narrative called Ad Nos Converte (Turn towards us). Performing Pictures was commissioned by Radio Sweden (Sveriges Radio) and Radio France to create this art work for the concert "Hommage aux femmes dans la musique: Du romantique à l'électronique". The live video performance of Ad Nos Converte served as a scenography for the concert, which took place in front of a live audience of 2500 at the UNESCO palace in Paris on International Women's Day, March 8, 2013.

Sound art is from the multitalented Charlotte Engelkes' piece 'God is God: Danica'
