Becoming a Video

A lot of my most favourite actions are driven by existential questions, curiosity, intuition and sense of loss. Those absurd actions make sense only after I make them.

Becoming a Video

In November 2016 I performed an action with the intention of Becoming a Video.

‘Inspiration 1’ was created as part of the Inspiration exhibition at ARTSPACEMEXICO Gallery in Mexico City. The piece is an element of a larger investigation between breathing (the art of breathing) and photographing (the art of photographing).

 

 

In November 2015 I performed an action with the intention of Becoming a Video.

During the action I have photographed every single person who have taken a picture of me.

The action performed around the Hangzhou lake (China) lasted 46 minutes.

 

 

In September 2015 I performed an action with the intention of Becoming a Video.

During the action I have taken a picture at every step of the church Nossa Senhora das Dores in Porto Alegre (Brazil).

Every shot is a sin toward fake immortality…

Every shot is a confession toward fake desires…

Every shot is a promise toward misrepresentation …

 

 

In June 2016 I performed an action with the intention of Becoming a Video.
In nature I have encountered the mirror image. I interpreted this experience as a reminder of a necessary transformation…from man with a camera into an animal with the camera.
