This two-channel video opens up a space contained in two statues of scared lions placed in Warandepark, in Brussels. While a camera wanders in photogrammetry models of the statues, a voice-over describes them, identifying places and relations in a speculative manner. Features of a beast, a statue, and a mineral seem to juxtapose on the same fragile objects. Although the statues remain motionless, they could be seen as transforming into something else every time the voice-over describes them differently.
