Unreached modernity (2015)

Two-channel video installation

Viaggio in Italia is considered by some film theorists as the beginning of modernity cinema. In its last scene, the members of a marriage in conflict yern to reach each other in a crowd of people. In the video installation Unreached modernity, this last scene of the film was slowed-down, looped and deconstructed in two different channels that follow each one of the lead characters, not allowing them to achieve the desired resolution, not allowing the film to end. The two audio channels of the installation increase in intensity when the characters are getting closer to reach each other.
