Fetching Bridges (endlessly)
A copy produced by this process
Our soul is a presence
One day I'll faint to the floor
Chiedi a Orlando (Ask Orlando)
The Sunshine Vineyard (Our Ideal Revolutionary Storm)
Towards the earth
This is a presage (in - existence)
(Horizon) the youngest phenomena
Assioma della scelta
The birds would sing in the other room
The man under the skin
Socìetas: dalla terra al cielo

Through a live action and a series of drawings the intense and fragile temporal condition of the fugitive - be it political, social, climate, psychological, or imagined - reveals itself through the 'encounter' in an uncertain zone of the planet. The experience develops across an infinite day around a rock, a speaker, a dancer and a dog, invited by the artist to share the same space and the same tensions. Little and continuous events emerge from the coexistence of the four presences and the diffusion of thoughts becomes an intrinsic, vivid and provocative sculptural element with which the speaker creates synapses between the external world and the event itself; while the dancer transforms sound, tensions and his relation with time in a dialectic of movements.
