In the Meantime
Photographs and Video
The imagery of “In the Meantime” is an autobiographical fiction, made of visual shortstories, memories, moments relived. The photographs and videos are set at a time I felt suspended, floating, waiting for something to happen, to change the state I was in. It was a time of condensed and relived memories from the past, a dreamlike repetition of situations I had encountered during my life. In these years I traveled the United States many times and later on lived in New York. A city with its own rythm, a very fast, harsh and continuous pace. Many times I lost my breath and only found refuge deep down inside myself. A very lonely space at times but then it was where I found all these almost forgotten memories and longings, reflected in the places and people that I was surrounded by.
I swim at the surface till I drown.
Sink.Into that deep ocean.
Darkness and silence.I don’t want to see.
Deeper and deeper.
My thoughts compress.
Delusional.I gasp for air.
Floating – a state without gravity, without weight.
Air – empty space just like object and matter. But we can see.
Light – travels through space and along surfaces. A reminder of time.
Reality – a constructed belief.
Matter – a constructed reality.
Belief – reality.
