A man is shot inside an empty room and he moves and takes on positions continuously out of barycentre. The nature of the lacks of balance is invisible and his ability into standing up in spite of unnatural postures is inexplicable: the videowork has been realized without special effects but is simply the result of a real shooting of an artificial condition.
- Raffaele Marsico
Constructing a territory implies motivating events and creating spaces, concepts and inertia. Creating interactions between objects rather than interventions. Promoting relationships of position that are movements. Determining actions rather than depictions.
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).
