RETROSPECTIVE 30 YEARS OF VIDEO-ART
13 to 17 December
Monday to Friday from 3pm to 7pm
Without words: that’s how you stay in front of a dream, a recall, an emotion. The power of silence. As a video artist, I’m trying to (re) create dreams, recalls and emotions without using the words, but the images and the music. For this reason, I like to work with dancers: because they are quite used to express complex moods with their bodies. So, I consider them something more than simple dancers or performers, but “actors without voice”: they express themselves using the silence of their bodies. Especially because some of my videos are quite narrative, but without speaking actors.
