Derive

Between an inexhaustible past and a non-unfoldable future: a chase after the horizon and some areas of refuge. Between what we believe, what we lived and what we would like to live. Life, perhaps...

Director Statement

In my personal journey as an artist, I always observe our being as an eternal procession. We are part of the process that goes from geometry to the universe. Abstraction with undefined shapes and lines to an ultimately unknown destination. The story of the human being. Like a post-atomic myth or a pre-war blues. We always choose the feeling of belonging and farewell. We belong to our movements which are the expansion of our cycles. The structure of our human geometry. Time is the rotation of our existence. Through this movement, we use the memory in our psycho-affective system in order to imagine our freedom, our cries, our drifts, our social struggles. In exile, all that we are. We belong to this path. And we use it as an ultimate form of being. The ideal is definitely established. I think it is the path of our metamorphosis. The path of our evolution. Without this, world is nothing.
