'A Hymn' captures on camera how a performer warms up and exercises. Once she arrives to the point of total exhaustion a drummer hits a drum every time a drop of her sweat touches the ground.
According to curator Ardi Poels "A Hymn recalls Mary's suffering. Artists search for a forgotten soul, a safe refuge, a new relation to the body and the senses. And thus they prove the surprising spiritual correspondences between early modern art and the art of today”.
