Sculpt the Motion (Italy, 6 min)
Directed by: Devis Venturelli
Sculpt the motion shows continuous transformations of metallic bodies through different urban plans. Contemporary architecture is a scenario for a performance, an experience as a sculptural promenade in a continuous flux. Silver strata of insulating material in action through the body change in mobile sculptures evoke Boccioni's Futurist dynamism.
The uncontrollable surfaces do not contain the drive towards becoming a creative form. The video echoes back to the textile kinematics of Serpentine Dance, recalling a mobile texture and a continuous metamorphosis of shapes. The body becomes a ritualistic/gestural expression, and partly from an interest in the depiction of the body as malleable material. Gilles Deleuze’s famous remark that the body is “but a series of images” remembered, desired, rejected and dreamt, is an apt description for the body’s place within the video.
