RISORGIMENTO - SANDRINE PHILIPPE
SANDRINE PHILIPPE - RISORGIMENTO
At the end of a poetic journey inside the ultimate identity crisis, the human race is progressively learning its needs and limits. Everything is a meaning of acceptance, conformism and belonging to a group. A story of opposition where freedom meets rebellion. Always questioning the limit between madness and reason; creating brick by brick a collective unconscious. An anxious plunge into the «Human», powerless vision of a slow agony in which he silently undergoes the aggressiveness and obsession of the urban world to slowly reveal the beauty within.
Emerging from a sea of cardboard, he appears to us in all his vulnerability and his need of mimicry. Sometimes precious and dressed in costumes and overcoats; sometimes bestial like a strange creature, a city fighter. At the crossroads between chaos and harmony, this dialectic of the human being highlights his need for poetry and protection.
Subject to an internal war in order to individuate oneself the human needs to get lost in order to find himself, reborn to destroy the chains reducing him to a slave. Alternately a symbol of its uniformity and its desire for freedom, the relationship to alterity is also a reading key; making the man torn between Individual and collectivity. Man, cyclically, frees himself from codes to better re-appropriate them. He affirms daily, his oneness and by the same time his need to belong. Frees himself from ties to make a clean slate of the past and social shackles. Painful process «RISORGIMENTO» is a plunge into the abyss, into pure emotion where the human being imprints his initiatory journey, testifying to beauty and timelessness.
