IN THE COUNTRY NOWHERE – Migrations to Europe
Topos means place. Atopos, absence of place. Utopia, an imaginary idea and illusory project. And the Dystopia, it’s the against-utopia. The borders are going to close, the walls are going to build, the medias talk nonstop about migration to Europe since six months. But this work is not a documentary, I mean, not only. This series is about identity and wandering, the errance in the entrance of Europe. In Greece, Italy and Spain, where the identity is moving between the life before and the life after, before the past and the future: nowhere. In Europe, we call them: the strangers.
I met them and I took them in picture at the end of the day, when the light is moving, become dark, when we don’t see enough. Every places are the same. This is a project in photography, video and text. I wrote in the description, like a scenario or a presentation of a play, very neutral. And, the videos are fixed shots : moments of life (or no life), nowhere and no one.
