About the evergrowing everchanging roots of our inner beings. About our wax outer coating and rugged containers of our souls.
We are scared of the darkness and we are scared of the un-natural, but inside there is another world with such different laws.
Our stories, our ideas, our thoughts and feelings need to be brought up into nature.
For me Art reminds us that God is in everything, more or less, deeper or shallower. Through Art we define God. Again and again. Art keeps creating and remembering us about God’s presence in all.
Art has created God. Art has created Religion. Art is necessary for it keeps God real, always becoming without a beginning without and end.
God comes shapeless, from nothingness, enters the world becomes form, formal and dies. God is flux, coming from nothingness into coarser and coarser shape until stone, until wind. Lost in oblivion. God needs God needs God needs God.
As long as there is God humans are at their best and the world is perfect. When people will forget about God, will feel no more the need to create It, then will be the fall of man.
Today Art explores for God into urban society, in skin, in individual detached conscience, in social conflict, in Taboos, in beauty, in purity, in garbage, in concepts, in accidents, in unconscious, in ugliness, in pain, in sex, in popular culture, in professionalism, in corporatism, in Art…
Where else does Art looks for God today?
This is a video I made starting from the problem I have with conciliating existence and reality. It is a superposition of different notes I made sawed together in an organic time/scape. In a trance like pattern of movement of the body, of the camera and of the ideas being described.
Reality is so multilayered and breaching through is so rare. It is our most primal effort. Is remaking patterns so that they will fit together into nothingness. Or misfitted.
This is a video that I made in 2012 with the help of 6 dancers – the Beings – with whom I tried to create a primordial world. A pre-human world where Beings made out of flesh and chaos begin to see, hear, touch, feel their shape, their breathe, their heart beat.
Beings that grow out of plants, beings that grow out of ruins and forgotten knowledge. That is why we filmed in an abandoned and burned old factory.
It was amazing to find nature inside a building, nature that grows in its own language, in its mistery as the Beings do too.
