With various video and performative 'dispositives', I seek to reveal the Fata Morgana that lays in every landscape.
A Fata Morgana is a mirage, a complex optical phenomenon that splits in two a form in the horizon, 'mirroring' the existence of an unknown land, or a gigantic ship. Mirage as the ambiguity of knowing something is artificial but still wanting to sink in it.
I mean by 'landscape' every physical or mental place, location.
'Dispositives' become real machineries using different contemporary process allowing the proper conditions of the Fata Morgana's apparition for the audience.
Fata Morgana is both making the illusion and display its mechanisms simultaneously.
