Autumn Dusk Cafe Scene, Venice

Terry Flaxton’s Autumn Dusk Cafe Scene, Venice was filmed at Café Paradiso inside the Giardini exhibition venue of the Venice Biennale. Flaxton details the scene: “Dusk is falling as is the desire to satiate yourself with art. No need any longer to try to understand the why and the how of it all and after a days work and pleasure - just like all the artists - you come and take a coffee with several Amaretti and watch the sparrows darting to and fro in the foliage surrounding this idyll, trying to get a crumb or two. Consuming art, consuming the world, consuming yourself and others. Consuming meaning – drifting, contemplating, feeling satisfied that regardless of the terror in the world there are moments when you can just sit and not think… just sit and watch. This is a beautiful and terrifying world but for this moment it is only beautiful. Into this island come two people of 80 years of age, dressed in black with red berets, she with a red belt and hat, he with a red bag and strap. They’re from Berlin. They know about style. They know about taste. They know about Art. They are so perfect they do not appear in this moving image piece, but in your mind only.”
