Artful appropriation of space, sporty extravagance: Pro-skater Kilian Martin dedicates himself to a well-nigh tender interpretation of Skate and destroy. Like a ballet dancer, Martin glides over the exhibition pieces of a neutral art space. The traces of the vandalistic act prove to be just like the objects on display: minimal. It is neither a skate film nor an art film; it defies all convention.
