format: video installation
year: 2014
duration: 40′ in loop

A group of people, massed, compact, the ones against the others, in an uncommon and unusual proximity to the limit of intimacy.
Although tightly incorporated in the group, everyone keeps intact the personal sphere, his/her gaze and  vision, a kind of his/her own circumstance.
In penetrating into the group or in coming out, in precarious balance, everybody needs to conform  to the common time, finding a mediation between making one with the group and the attempt to make one’s way.
The long duration of the effort crumbles and corrodes every auto-representative control, in the uncensored visibility of an act that denies interpretation.
The video was shot in the area of an urban covered parking; it respects the sounds and the light of the environment.
