FETCHING BRIDGES - Event 1, 2 and 3

2014,
Actions in the city, online streaming, HD video (25 minutes), video mp4 (1 hour), C-Print photos.
With: Alice Decembri, Alberto Baraghini and Maria Caterina Frani
iPad - live streaming: Francesca Banchelli

Produced and curated by Centro per l’Arte Contemporanea Luigi Pecci of Prato, with Dryphoto and Kinkaleri for Prato Sarajevo

https://vimeo.com/164830640 All the actions were recorded in low resolution with an iPad and streamed online via a live-stream channel. The streaming was divided in three events, which occurred in various areas of the city of Prato’s suburbs, during the morning and the afternoon of the 10/06/2014 and the evening of 12/06/2014, on occasion of ‘Prato- Sarajevo Art Invasion’, a residency curated by Centro per l’Arte Contemporanea Luigi Pecci of Prato, with Dryphoto and Kinkaleri for Prato Sarajevo. The actions were inspired from the film “Le Pont du Nord”, Jacques Rivette’s film (1981), and relocated in the city of Prato. The work is based on a series of events excerpted and inspired from “Le Pont du Nord”, Jacques Rivette’s film (1981). The actions have variable durations. The two protagonists of the original movie explore the city of Paris with the help of a map/table-game, seeking to find the solution of a plot. Similarly the protagonists of Fetching Bridges (endlessly) cross the city of Prato through its suburbs, construction yards and desolated city’s scenarios; where every place becomes similar to any other urban neighborhoods. Through the live-streaming, the spectator is led to continuously switch the focus between the condition of ‘film’ and the one of reality; two statuses from which the people of Fetching Bridges (endlessly) enter and exit continuously – colliding without conditions with the given context. The events take the shape of little breaches of a film, whose starting point has taken place somewhere else; exactly the way in which reality looks like, without a beginning nor an end - endlessly.
