francesca is a video about the relationship created during a performative act.


The accelerated and schizophrenic editing leads to a dematerialization of the performer's body in the image, going in search of a relationship based on the breaking up of identity and the denial of referentiality.

The loss of a rational relationship passes through the use of remote communication technologies (skype) and their main characteristics: incorporeality, disconnection of the voice from the body, segmentation of space, division of the body.

The video investigates the possibility of a non-social, non-communicative but emotional and performative relationship by pursuing, without ever reaching it, a faraway intimacy.

The fluidity of the images and the decomposition of the sound give a sign of the impossibility of recomposing a unified and univocal identity of a post-contemporary relationship

The video has Giorgio Agamben's book “Nudities” as its main reference.
