The exhibition The Fall is comprised of three images-ambients in a row, from an image of nothingness, to an image of creation, to an image of fall. In the dark space of nothingness the observer encounters a stirring, dark surface that, with its circular motion, has a tendency to draw him into its mass.
In the image of creation the body is dissolved in the water, in an effort to separate itself from the vertical block of the condensed substance of water. A long, black hallway leads to the final image – the fall, which is actually a jump, a rebound, an elevation.
In each of these images, in a certain way, substance is defying its essence. The hot circular surface of tar, which reflects the surrounding space like a mirror, filmed from up close, projected in slow motion, almost covers by reflex the heavy, sticky, dense substance under the surface. The vertical block of water, out of which the body emerges, defies gravity and it seems that the cohesive structure of the water has been changed; its density has been achieved by slowing down the recording. In the last image the fall transforms into a jump and in this way defies gravity again. The body, which would fall through the diluted substance of air, is actually being pushed up in the air by an invisible force.”
