Antitesi Popolare #2
L'altezza tra ferro e sale
16 mm film, colour, no sound, 9’50’’
S1/Salon "Ode to the flaneur" selected by Ben Rivers, S1-Artspace, Sheffield UK
Antitesi Popolare is the action of a small group of people looking for a contact with a flock of cormorans through a journey inside their habitat. The group doesn’t have a scientific plan that could give them a tangible solution on which behavior they should assume; rather their manners are pure and followed by an emotional childish curiosity. Their behaviors are essential and are completed by the gesture of feeding the birds with fish used by fisherman. The action starts in the early morning and finishes in the afternoon, without a real contact with the birds having occurred. By challenging a group of young people to undertake an unforeseeable experience, the aim was to activate a sense of essential communication between them, by transforming the journey in a new born collectivity, formed at the end of the shootings.
