Gypsy rhapsody is an art installation composed of n. 9 light boxes of 50 x 35h cm each and n. 1 photograph on aluminum of 70 x 115h cm. Work tells the cabaret of a theater company that no longer exists and that like ghosts, they return to the place that has seen them protagonists in the past and to relive the moments of the show. They inhabit the scene for 8 frames … then silence returns, leaving the viewer with the sense of emptiness of a place that returns to its origin in a rarefied silence.
This work responds to a residential and public setting (an example could be a theater) to raise people's awareness of the discourse of migrant theater companies and its abandoned places.
This project is fantastic. The team of the company reproduced here, are subjects that do not exist in reality .. they were made with photoshop.
My work is like a direction of a visionary film. Each character represents a story that ends with the interpretation by the viewer.
