The fear of falling is as old as mankind. Falling is the symmetrical opposite of flying and and has been pictured according to different conceptions of weight-of the body which falls to the ground. Falling is also linked to walking badly, staggering, jumping, getting lost, and also to failing.In modern and contemporary art, falling has become an intentional action. An action that involves the artist's body and often the fate of the image of the work of art.
