FOX PANTHER OWL _ the background

( _ ROADMAP OF CLUES ) We are in a modernist’s acid trip. There are elements of Fellini’s stage with grotesque props that do not match the background - neon signs, art on a wall. Slowly we are realizing that these are all clues to other narratives. Making detectives of us all, we are invited to construct our own hypothesis, granting and revoking alibis, we are more than spectators; we are forced to be cinematic citizens.

FOX PANTHER OWL _ the background

( _ GRANITE AND LACQUER ) We are moving through emptiness of European town at dawn, changing vignettes of cultural landscape from old shanghai to ultra modern. At some point will we stop remembering where we had started? It’s a sensual mix of a good taste in all ages. We are engaged into narrative while emerged into phosphorus glow of textures: from rough granite of the old world to a new world lacquer.
