“ I do not like putting on paper details concerning my gestures. I prefer sharing my story from time to time to those who care to listen; Oral transmission and gesture cannot be written down in black and white. Together, those elements constitute the material allowing to meet anyone who wishes to enter a Master’s secret world. “

 

From my dialogues with Franco Sale – Mamojada 2016.

 

There are a certain amount of time-honored gestures that have no beginning and perhaps no end. A sea tornado is composed of rotating columns of air over water. This natural reaction combines material and immaterial elements, forming a single object in time and space. Using this metaphor as an act of enclosing, within a process of existential reproduction, could initiate a dynamic self-disclosure process towards space.

 

The true nature of an action lies in the extension of a shared experience between individuals. All involved parties are impersonated through the results of the resulting action, within a specific timeframe and space. Structuring itself around two months, the research involved a full period of field research practice in close contact with an old Sardinian ceremonial mask carver(Franco Sale), wondering together about the intersection of experience through different generations and temporalities. The multimedia installation aims to physically recreate a dimension where past and future experiences are embodied. Created to eventually decompose, materiality oscillates between its embodiment and its formalization within a time-lapse experience. The result generated by these two elements is established when their meeting occurs within a specific time frame.
