Private Project


Proposed about two synchronised protections, this short tells, avoiding any romantic or sentimental temptation, the creative gesture of the famous italian artist Manuela Sedmach.
The documentary film seems to suggest that the preparation of a work of art and the strain of the artistic gesture do not manage to be unlaced at the domestic time, also he scanned by gestures and preparations.
The poetics expands, with an almost holistic process, from the canvas to the environments in which the life is lived. Also a look becomes a repeated gesture. Each instant becomes poetic.
Where there is no poetry, it misses the horizon.

Director Statement

The relationship between body/s and space rappresent the beginning of my artistic history and somehow the dominant of all my work. The theater offers me the opportunity to constantly ask myself the problem about the boundary between representation and reality.
Therefore, the transformation of the body is part of this process and in addition to representing an anchorage to scenic universe, implies a continous reflection on the concept of temporary and its representation.

My latest works are influenced by the impermanence of the places, by the precariousness of time and existence.
