The Visitors (2012)

    Performance 30'

     

    There's nobody left here! Why is it that in architectural photographs buildings are always deserted?

    Where are the people? Are they about to appear or did they just leave? 

     

    “The Visitors” is a refletion on presence and absence, on the way we look at things, but also about what we fail to see.

    A research in between film and performance that uses architecture as the perfect witness.
