The Void that Contains Us
The outer fringe of the city gives the exact measure of the price we pay for concentrating the satisfaction of our needs and our desires. At its boundaries the city reveals itself; like the wall of a cell, this skin protects and (unequally) admits sustenance to those who live inside it, but at the same time this wall is itself inhabited by a class of interstitial human beings who are the real subject of my project: suppliers, semi-urban farmers, prostitutes, practitioners of strange leisure pursuits, the uprooted, the wandering, cops, rubbish dumpers, car washers… beings that are unable or unwilling to escape the field of attraction, yet are not entirely within it.
These are the beings we fleetingly glimpse when our comings and goings in our safe cars allow us to perceive the scars of a landscape where both the city and the country disappear; uncertain scenarios that expose the cruelty of a breakneck productive culture that invents uninhabitable spaces that are nonetheless lived in.
