CIRCUIT TRAINING

Video 1920 x 1080 px
color, stereo
12'30''

Circuit Training dedicates 12 minutes to the promise of a purely physical language. Visually the video revolves around the boxing ring, a square in fact. The mythical square ring enables two equal bodies to confront each other in a space, where colors, identities and cultural symbols have no meaning at all. Circuit Training juxtaposes this modernist utopia of meaninglessness with the digital utopia of the nervous system, which we can only access through symbolic thinking. The video alternates between states of rest and attention looking to grasp this duality through form and rhythm.
