A Place to Come
Un luogo a venire
"A Place to Come" is a video about the mutual references between the plain description of a place and its concrete demonstration.
The narrative structure of the work starts from the perceptive features that are developed by the presence of fog.
In this video, the reality that is till not expressed is anticipated by sounds. Just as it happens in case of fog.
Moreover, a "voice over" describes the reality to come. In each sequence, the setting of the next scene is enticipated by voice over and sounds.
The fog first appears as an object, as something out there that is separate from us. Then, with time, the object morphs and morphs until it begins to break up and disperse and it changes to a different state of matter altogether, once an object, it is now an atmosphere.
The fog reveals the plenitude of space, the ways in which space and spaces are anything but empty. We tend to think of space as void, an emptiness between things.
But space is also present and full and over-flowing with characteristics and qualities.
Our work is moving along an ideal border-line, the one of meaning, which articulates the difference between possibility and impossibility, between movement and pose (pause).
