If all that remained of our century was a garbage bag Videoinstallation und Mixed Media, 2013

"If all that remained of our century was a garbage bag” introduces the complex and ambiguous position of information, interweaving anthropologic research, journalistic documentation and fable-like narration.
The attempt to visit the largest trash yard of the globe becomes an excuse to crystalize contemporary myths and let emerge global dynamics, observing them in an abstracted form, creating a link between a reality level and an oneiric one through the distance given by the presence of paradoxes.
The installation is made by the balance between a film and two further local visual elements: newspaper piles from Basel and the official garbage bag of Chiasso. The research of truth, clarity and understanding for which the piles of newspapers seem to be standing can not be fulfilled if not in a form of a display of fascinations.
"A Hollywood film crew could shoot there spectacular sequences.” In this unreal location, out of medias domain, not represented enough and even obscured, only unreal battles can take place: spectacularization seems to be able to go even beyond information.
At a certain point it appears evident that it is not possible and not even necessary to have a total image of the place I am looking for: the realm can not be seen, it is too huge to be contained, can be represented only through its borders and perimeter confirming that in any case the garbage network is connecting the whole globe.
