Paintings and Cake
By Kyung Oh
Two friends are planning to go out one evening, somewhere, to an unspecified place. But their evening is constantly interrupted by the entrance of an enigmatic character. The scene transforms. We travel through time, to post-war Paris, to the time of the pagan gods, to eighteenth century Spain. We visit Marie Antoinette, step into Goya's etchings of war, and discover the forgotten story of a mother. But where are the two friends going? And what are they looking for?
