Eating is a basic gesture, primeval, derived from the survival instinct. The act itself is the merging point between two dimensions constantly connected with each other: the deepest one - our innermost and mysterious side - and the external structure and well known to all structure, where sounds, the eyes followed by the mouth, the tongue and the nerve endings translate into the so-called nourishment process.

A development occurred through an unconditional act of confidence which reveals itself in one of the greatest human related moments of intimacy: eating. An act of will which allows the breakdown of our defences in favor of communication and the transition from what is external and alien towards the most inner and private part of our body, generating, in a dialectical motion and in just one word, life itself. In other words, this process generates life itself.

 

“Intimate archive” collects this private moment in a video collection created in my studio during a break time.   >
