This project connects to the bizarre romaticism of the Pre-Raphaelites. In the paintings of this avant-garde brotherhood, water has a leading dramaturgical role. Still waters of ponds and creeks make scenery in female portraits ﬁlled with remoteness and dreamy sensuousness. The atmosphere that the Pre-Raphaelitic brotherhood created in thier artistic action is a riddle in art history. The feature of escapism combined with elements of sensuality is bewildering.
The escapistic trait was a protest against realism and practicalitys of the industrial age, a reaction against the determinism of a closed view and stringent frameworks. The human call for dreams, perspective and liberation gets stronger in captivity. I ﬁnd a correlation to this in the contemporary world, where the clima-situation as well as socio-political manifestations interfere with every cell of human life, art and culture.
