Present

PRESENT, 2024

16mm Film, DCP, 25′, stereo sound

A Composition of a human figure placed in a challenging position. The impossibility of the image is discharged into movement and sound, into a stream towards a freeform: of the performer, camera and image.
 
In the core of Present is a dialogue between control and reflex, choreography of stillness in movement.
