TARA develops in the world of a newborn baby, putting emphasis on her body movements provoked by different emotions, absolutely real and transparent. TARA'S body movements have amazed me since the early days of her life, they are something new, something I was not aware of before, which I find extremely fascinating. They provoked me to reflect on the adult world, my world, so different from the world of Tara, especially on the emotional level. Her mind and body interact. Her emotions directly affect her body. Her physical, tangible sphere, extended in space, interacts with the intangible, private world, ordered in time but not in space. TARA reveals the world of a newborn baby, still unaffected by the world of adults, pure from any external influence. It shows a newborn baby from different points of view. Not as a cute miniature of a human but as a growing personality. Intentionally I try to hide the face of Tara so that we can focus on her movements to reevaluate the human body and its natural behaviour.
