Trailer production for "Dear Friends, wolves have always eaten sheep" (2018)
“Dear friend, wolves have always eaten sheep” is a performance that reflects around the glory and decadence of Europe. It’s a plea for transformation and reconfiguration in a post-colonial landscape that reconfirms rusted power relationships. In the performance the appealing prestige and development of western nations is also strong executer of the unwelcome ones. In front of the spectator’s eyes a water canon protects our coast from invasion, making sure that all the unwanted stay out or are force to hang in a never ending limb of wait and attempts.

“My shadow used to have a density” by Francesca Lazzeri (2020)
At a time when keeping distance is the new norm and we long for human contact, Francesca Lazzeri creates an intimate encounter. A short rendezvous between isolated individuals. Separated by a screen and connected by it at the same time. How does this affect their way of communicating? Do they dare to expose themselves?
The performative installation my shadow used to have a density responds to the here and now. Inspired by Japanese photographer Hal, Francesca Lazzeri investigates how meeting an unknown individual can provoke the feeling of proximity and loneliness at the same time. The vulnerabilities of an exhibited individual emerge through image, light and sound.
