Nuns Who Go Underground


The almost perfect posture, of a figure in the landscape. Its weight. The dynamism of its human body, raising itself in two feet. The situation is nailed: it walks, it turns and follows. Great steps, walking in springing nights with dark walls, side by side with sleepy houses. And, when beating the sky with little strength, snores are hearded.
