Description
VIDEO PERFORMANCE BY FINA FERRARA
The antibiotic Anisomicine inhibits the synthesis of proteins and DNA, which is necessary to create long term memories. The injection of anisomycin into the hippocampus has been proposed to eliminate selective memories. We carry our luggage full of stories. Some stories we wish to never recall again. Could anisomicine be the antidote for this ill?
In this video performance the artist shows a figure that is completely in contrast with the surrounding environment and the atmosphere it emanates makes everything seem to be part of a fairy tale or a dream. It could all be part of a fanciful thought or memory. The effort of walking on dangerous terrain carrying all our baggage is connected to the artist's desire to emerge in all its essence.
