“For most of history, Anonymous was a woman.”
_Virginia Woolf

TO THE STRANGER
Video
2020









                                                       




It is of the nature of desire not to be satisfied.
— Aristotle.







This video was a reaction to the isolation and absence of hope imprinted by the pandemic. It meant the global crises but reflected, particularly, my own paralysis upon the momentum.

I was lost in translation in my own house in Amsterdam while I was supposed to be in Portugal at that very moment, to follow an academic traject.

Holland disbelieved but here, as much as in mostly of Europe, the death-toll reached apocalypse rates everyday. Meanwhile, in my motherland, the virus striked hiting mostly the poor.  I held a fear of the unknown within but there was nowhere to go.

The work came an epic response, as if time has arrived to jump into the unknown. In a impulse, I took a mantle and performed. Music played from the skies.
