A MOVIE WITHOUT A MOUNTAIN / A 35 MM ON SCALE

2015, FLORENZ CONTEMPORARY Italian Embassy in Berlin curated by Angelika Stepken, director of Villa Romana.

The installation is generated by the collision of a performative approach with matter. The painting/collages situated on the surfaces of the swinging PVC shapes, feature morbid virtual movements inspired by the idea of cinema taken as a remote concept of narration, generating solid bounded structures captured in a state of flux. The PVC pieces are modeled on the furnitures, wall and floor as mutant objects; they float in the space as well as their content do on their surfaces.

A MOVIE WITHOUT A MOUNTAIN (2015) acrylic, plastic, film filter and tape on PVC, 120 x 250 cm The work is the result of a process that interlaces cinema with its material outcome; it shows a movie’s debris on a soft plastic screen. “Scenes” are sought together by painted brush strokes, constituting an imaginative story, without referring to any real movie. The “movie’s script” is turned into an abstract object, being the product of the materialization of the movie’s aura. This way the hypothetic film works only as an input, gaining the possibility to be started over and over again; the public can stroll around the synthesis of an abstract narration, which blows up anti-narrative sequences.

35 MM ON SCALE (2014) acrylic, plastic, film filter and tape on PVC, 100 x 215 cm Mixed materials and painting on a swinging PVC generate a fluid dimension that aims at unsystematically intersecting in the given contest, an open-device yet with autonomy, softness and defined boundaries of an imagined film. The usage of materials as variables create a suspended abstraction on a flat area in between depth and surface, movement and stillness; abandoning hierarchical constants of action and painting, the work recalls a process of resistance in between virtual and reality.
