Clemens Wilhelm: A Horse with Wheels

Clemens Wilhelm
Shot in Ice Age caves in France, within a herd of 1000 reindeer in North-Norway, on the glaciers of Iceland, the vast landscapes
of Scotland, and a museum in Germany, A HORSE WITH WHEELS tells the story of a journey and a seemingly impossible approximation: how can we get closer to our ancestor who made the first art object? Does it help to see the same images? Have we changed at all since the Ice Age, or is progress adeception? What do we know about our past and why do we want to believe that our ancestors were primitive? Is a camera so different from a carving knife? The “Swimming Reindeer” are a reminder of the last global warming that humanity had tosurvive. Was this mayor human crisis the trigger for the invention of art?

Clemens Wilhelm (1980, Berlin) is an artist & filmmaker based in Berlin whose practice ranges from film/video to photography and performance.
