THE DREAM IS THE DREAMER

54a

 

Scenic development that proposes the construction of a place, implying a beginning and a center — a cosmogony.

A map of relationships and experiences is put in evidence by the activation of centers of tension through the construction of fictionalized contemporary landscapes and recycling ecosystems from which maters and debris are produced on the basis of the concept Plastigomerate (sculptural objects put together by the union of human waste and raw maters through processes of marine and wind erosion).

Inspired by the AEROCENE movement the construction of the hypnagogic experience of the body is triggered by the exercise of looking up and contemplating the infinite unknown, where the individual stands in contrast to the horizon line, reinventing himself as a multiple entity, post-human and simultaneously archetypal.

The relation between an image-space and physical vitality is generated by a solitary character who seeks, through processes of construction of a body-skin-flesh, the timeless monstrous and sublime dimensions of his own realms.

In order to create a charged heterogeneous scene, actions are structured according to processes of division, separation and delimitation of borders, questioning the value of occupation of space, with reference to the excerpt from Georges Perec: Frontiers are lines. Millions of men are dead because of these lines. Thousands of men are dead because they didn’t manage to cross them. Death as come for millions of men, from a slight difference in level between two points that exist less than a hundred meters apart.
