Présentation détaillée du projet
“Untitled (The Asylum Seeker)” introduces the immigrant as an individual. The narrative aims to deconstruct the systematic and cold identification the western society attributes to immigrants. Numbers and statistiques are in contrast with an emotional state of mind, inciting an interest towards human beings that are currently ghosts in our community.
Developed around image, sound, video and installations, the work takes shape throughout three main different phases:
The Asylum Seeker in our political, economical and social system;
Portraits as well as metaphorical images exploring my state of mind coming across their present and past lives. A shift through which the observant is lead into a more intimate point of view;
The result of an artistic laboratory related to the cognition of “Home” experienced with a group of refugees.
It is a socially-engaged art project which goal is to provide a visual space conceived as a conduit for creating awareness and dialogue about issues pervading our societies.
The project has been conceived from the very beginning as an immersive visual exhibition were the observant interacts somehow to each series of images. It's a path composed by three "chapters" that despite different from each other, connect. The passage between one to the other is therefore fluid.
