[soft water on hard stone, so much beats until it pierces], 2021

 

video installation 2’30” looped video

 

This work is inspired by the popular Brazilian saying – which combines the element “water” with a wise and resilient force – to pay homage to the artist Frans Krajcberg. Water is the example: capable of overcoming, with wisdom and perseverance, all instances of Evil.

The video of a waterfall whose waters break through the rock are projected on the walls of a room.

The visitor is invited to enter; as you do, your shadow is projected onto the image. The visitor is invited to play with his own shadow, becoming part of the work.

In an immersive way, sound and images guide the viewer.
