Obedient horses can be found everywhere: on top of monuments, together with cowboys, on the playground, in fairy tales. They are always there, where we imagine them to be. Noemi Vola’ story is actually a different one: here the protagonists are revolutionary horses. They abandon monuments, run away from swings; they even leave the jacks of playing cards! But to go where? What could ever be better than a merry-go-round ride?
Why stop jumping obstacles? Noemi Vola tells us with her unmistakable trait abot how the search for freedom is within everyone’s reach, even for those who just seem unable to move from where they were placed.
