The project UP
“I don’t know why I’ve turned round in a balloon, perhaps I am distracted and is simply slipped the tip on the sheet”. Raise, raise, move upward, even spirit, strive for a better condition, free from burdensome or commitment by a state of physical or moral oppression, occurrence or rebel. A composition of small photographs on the walls opens in front of us, red balloons transported in each direction by a breeze that we can only imagine. Laughter and maybe some scream. And, to be the backdrop to everything, the sea. It is above all a game for and with oneself, a return to childhood when the balloon is not subject, but a metaphor for a need to escape from a situation of suffocation. Daniela, instead, calls for a reaction, asks the desire to get back in the game, returning to play as when, still children, dreams were all achievable. The project was born from a need of levity, the need to be able to, even if only for a moment, be lifted into the air by a balloon, to believe you can do. The weight of the body is a metaphor for all the complications of a system that we do not understand, a bureaucracy that he holds on to his ankles, keeping us stuck on the ground, as we were too heavy.
