Text by artists:
The video shows a trivial scene from daily lifee - the grinding of onions. With matter -of-factness the camera records the grinding and the resulting reactions. the video deals with the collective experience in crying and because of the percepttible stage-setting, the viewer is confronted with the concept of suffering
