Back to square one (2018)
“Back to square one”, Projection mapping, 2018
- The woman fits into a domestic space, she tries to comply with what society expects of her.
- She wears what is suggested to her by fashion and/or induced by religious constraints.
- The bureaucratic processes of administrations are imposed upon her when as an immigrant she has to prove her identity as a woman and as a citizen.
- The man defines the reduced boundaries of the female universe, freedom itself is measured according to well-defined roles.
- The man and the woman reconcile, find a common ground, a form of harmony, and bring a dance step into existence together.
- Doubt, wandering, lack of purpose wear out a wheel stuck in an endless cycle.
- Here again, the man molds the woman to correspond to the role assigned to her, the expectations that she is supposed to embody.
- Man tries to escape a form of predefined destination related to his past, with what shapes him in his daily life, at the end he accepts to occupy the place assigned to him; even if he partially changes his cell, he enters the box that he must occupy, once again.
