Varsity 1 - Thu 3:00 PM (4/7) Varsity 1 - Fri 12:00 PM (4/8) Varsity 1 - Sat 09:30 AM (4/9) A meditation on the creative process and the dynamic between artist and work, this film is a collaboration that explores and plays with a series of impossible paradoxes in art. Imagine a sculptor working on a marble figure, which, while being shaped, will develop a life of its own, with its own soul. Now imagine this newborn soul wanting to be part of the artistic process, contributing to the creation of an artwork in which it is itself contained.
Directors’ Statement: Luigi Pane, Federico Pepe
To what extent can an artist become one with his work? We imagined a sculptor working on a marble figure. Then, his artwork develops a life of its own, and the artist becomes artwork too — but the creative process slowly consumes everything, just as humans become dust. What if the artist would then want to repossess his artwork and make it part of himself again?
