Att leva är att darra
Dror Feiler & Gunilla Sköld Feiler

”To live is to tremble. The body quakes and twitches in constant convulsions. A vibrating, oscillating wave moves through its nerve-ends, putting the whole living being in tremors.” /Quote by Emanuel Swedenborg

It takes a moment for viewers to understand what they are watching, a bell is seldom seen from below. There is something erotic, somewhat inappropriate about the view – upskirt – the hanging, vibrating clappers, a bit like budding flowers in springtime, waiting to blossom. Never completely still, as to live is to tremble. It is only death that does not.

”There is a poem by the priest and Renaissance poet John Donne which ends with the following well-known words, also the title of a novel by Hemmingway: For Whom the Bell Tolls”. It is the bell as a symbol for the very serious in life, a bell that sounds echoing somewhere in the depths of each human.” /Eric Schüldt about the piecee
