Breath

2020

HD-Video, 12 min, Stereo Sound

Breath is a newly produced video work speaking of life itself and entangling the spectator into an emotional journey. The imagery remains mostly abstract, with moving forms and colours, not distinguishable but strangely alive, coming from an energy yet to find form and burst into life.

The main narrative is about the condition of life by itself, when life in the uterus still remains undecided whether it will see the world, the light, therefore before the child can take its first independent breath.

Combined with dreamlike sequences of palm trees and a small island lost in a sea of fog, following a never-ending field of clouds and dazzled by flashes of changing colours, the video creates a dynamic of its own, having a mesmerizing effect of witnessing both hope and despair at the same time.

Filming started in June 2020 and the Production was finished in August 2020
