Angelina Voskopoulou (Greece) – Blind Traveller, 2018, 1;27
A video art made for describing the face of Europe today:Blind travelers
ABOUT THE CONCEPT OF THE VIDEO:
”There’s André Breton’s saying: “Man is the answer, no matter what the question is.”
This can only be recognized through three paths: poetry, freedom, and love and they must inspire the same zeal and converge in order to form the same outline of eternal youth, in the most secret and devoid parts of the heart of man…
Time is like a liquid form object, (a ‘runny’ body), what is this that remains from this Liquidity? The body is the garment of life. It is aging, hurting, giving birth, bleeding, making love, changing and altering, wearing and dying. They are truly all present, even those who are absent become symbols of the Social mind that defines what must be done and how should be done.
Explosion of the moment: is revolution, youth, love, denial, demons inside us, battles and incomplete situations… all of us, blind travelers that pass … we must forget all but one, futility of the existence … Life-spectacle, (with reference to Guy Debord) Walking around wondering, like in films without images and plot, poems without words, composed of cries, whispers and roars. Is ‘a map that transforms an object into its mirror image’ and, by doing so, we will also try our best to circumvent our own resistance. The image in the mirror, right there in front of our virtual eye which might exist or not, is a boundless empty space with no beginning and no end, totally dissociated from all limitations of time and space, a bodiless expanse beyond.A descending line flowing to the ephemeral, dream ghosts.
Europe today… In other words, ‘Where would I go, if I could go, who would I be,
if I could be, what would I say, if I had a voice, who says this, saying it’s me?
Answer simply, someone answer simply’. Samuel Beckett”
