Trailer production for "My shadow used to have a density" (2020)
At a time when keeping distance is the new norm and we long for human contact, Francesca Lazzeri creates an intimate encounter. A short rendezvous between isolated individuals. Separated by a screen and connected by it at the same time. How does this affect their way of communicating? Do they dare to expose themselves?
The performative installation my shadow used to have a density responds to the here and now. Inspired by Japanese photographer Hal, Francesca Lazzeri investigates how meeting an unknown individual can provoke the feeling of proximity and loneliness at the same time. The vulnerabilities of an exhibited individual emerge through image, light and sound.
