Manu Arregui presents his latest videographic work starring a new character. A young man falling into the void evolves between an abrupt descent and delicate dance movements, interrupted sometimes by the icon of “downloading” characteristic in the viewing of audiovisuals on the Internet. The pixel distortions typical of the compression codecs in these videos are also incorporated by the artist to offer that particular texture of the digital world. In a moment of creation we can see the character interacting with a computer, operating with a representation of himself in a portal where videos are shared.
The artist continues his research around the tensions between the real and the virtual. The androgynous aspect of the protagonist and the ambiguous treatment of suicide make us think of the imbalance of the individual against society, of the political movements linked to the liberation of minorities, reflection on the body and the challenge to normality.
