Markowitsch draws on a series of videos that he made while travelling in Las Palmas, Bejing, Moscow, Lucerne and Berlin. The short takes show the manual work of fish and meat mongers at market. The camera focuses exlusively on the hands of these tradespeople in action. Markowitsch shows these videos in combination with photographs from bonsai and ikebana publications.
