Cradle

'Cradle' is a video work which focuses on the hands of two pairs of players engaged in the simple game of Cat's Cradle.

The work demonstrates that for a game to be successful, it is vital that all the participants know 'the rules'. Al-Ani's interest in staging and performance, hierarchy and power is clear. The experienced players enjoy a fluid and elegant exchange but as soon as one player lacks the necessary skills, progress becomes impossible.
