Director Statement

The artist strolls like a „Flâneur“ through the city. Through the Polis.
He is (and he acts as) the political Person per se.
He is obsessed with the purpose to watch and catch with his video camera unique, subtile but public moments which no eye has time to catch and watch: the rough poetic of the daily life in all of its variety, the politic of the daily life per se.
His gesture follows the tradition of the street photography and manifests some restrictions: no camera moves, no zooming, no special lighting, no extra microphone,
no effects, even no permission...
In a later process he chooses and combines the scenes and without to cut or to change anything, he projects, installs and presents them online, offline, on site or off site always under different contexts...
His preference is fictional, his gesture is docu/mental and performative but his product is an essay: finding the fictional moments of the reality, creating essays using film documentary, street photography, performance and sculptural manners, showing the ideal way of being and going together with the medium of the videocamera...
