'FETCHING BRIDGES', is based on the film 'Le Pont du Nord' (Jacques Rivette, 1981), a noir where the two crossed-paths comrades Baptiste and Marie, impulsively take up the silent challenge of the Paris' codes with the help of a secret map, seeking to solve a dangerous plot that involve a crime. The artist extracts some isolated psychological moments from Rivette's obscure adventure, where the heroine of the story, Baptiste, mixes reality with visions, as an unconscious and vivid underworld. In the video, the solitary Baptiste is taken out of the cinematographic platform of Paris’ arrondissements, coming across with the reality of a provincial city’s context, interacting with monsters and the suburb’s ordinary life. The work wants to analyse the fascination of cinema and of a film’s narration, putting the immortality of the "cinematic idea" in connection with the rawness of live actions, unfolding and augmenting the film’s psychological aspects. Confronting directly with Le Pont du Nord’s original structure, 'FETCHING BRIDGES' suggests how video-art has retroactively drawn from cinema’s power to communicate directly with the public, and by exploring the "mind" of the main character’s imagery, the aim is to erase the distance/wall that detaches the audience from cinema.
