To Begin is a work about waiting, loneliness, presence and compassion. It presents a state of physical and psychological pain, the dynamics, dictating that with the wide questions related to the essence of life one is ultimately alone. Even though the work depicts a childbirth, it is not obvious for the viewer. Most details referring to childbirth are left out. The images communicate in a more general level as well. We see close-ups of two women who move in the space slowly, occasionally leaning on each other. One of the women seems to be in great pains. The work depicts a certain period of time during which the situations both grow more intense and stabilise. However, there is no final solution.
