Animal Cinema

ENG-ITA


Animal Cinema, 2017. Video in HD, 00:12:12, formato 16:9, colori, suono.

Animal Cinema è composto unicamente da frammenti di video postati su YouTube che ho collezionato a partire dal 2012. Tutti i video sono accomunati da una comune caratteristica: sono stati girati da animali che si sono trovati faccia a faccia con una videocamera e se ne sono impossessati. Movimenti di corpi, chele, tentacoli, zanne, artigli e zampe si sostituiscono a qualsiasi premeditazione registica. Il risultato è un vortice di forme di consapevolezza e modi di essere in continuo dispiegarsi: una concatenazione di azioni e passioni che apre un inedito spiraglio sul complicato assemblaggio di uomini, animali e tecnologie di cui noi tutti siamo parte. Animal​ Cinema​ continua la mia ricerca su forme di creatività non antropocentriche e sul rapporto sensoriale, viscerale, intellettivo ed emotivo, che tali forme evocano.
