Il - the maninal
Hercli Bundi, Svizzera

Il / The Manimàl is a study about a man in the bath. Composed with only a few seconds of real action, the tape focuses on the mans body, the water, his erotic play with a handle. Thereby the video gives an entire image of the protagonist and his desires.

Bits ( of Barcelona) The method used for the assembly to been the utilization of the own one original sound mounted as if about a musical piece it was treating. Generating digital mistakes in the apprehension and the postproduction, narrative without beginning not even end. Emphasizing this way the sensation of a chaotic and stressful city to her time that tourist and multicultural. BITS shows Barcelona as a city that grows to a dizzy speed. An unfinished work.

Disjointed part of the body is orchestrating the symphony of hypnotic and annoying repetitive sounds of a sewing machine simultaneously metaphorically performing inscriptions on the body. Here we can find the Nietzschean notions of the eternal return mixed with the medical fetishism, wrapped up in a safe, home surrounding.








The feeling for your native place lasts longer than 62 seconds. It is made for eternity - especially somebody who is homeless will understand this. Nevertheless, you will sense this feeling in a split second even though it changes continuously in time. It connects people but will always be an individual expression.
