Conversazione is the first work in which I passed from photography to video: it came out of a photographic series of people seen close-up (those in Rumore di fondo) and together with that on folds. I realized that I had to deal with what lies beneath language, beneath what we take for granted. Once again, the part outside the field of vision, everything that’s cast aside by our consciousness, is brought front and center. Ten monitors arranged in a circle show details, fragmentary images of the bodies of ten different people, knees, napes, feet, etc, making tiny movement. There is no words: the focus is on the breath, which is under the conversation, but here is moved to the foreground.
