About Fighting World
A peculiar road-movie on the times of quarantine through the eyes of a 14-year-old girl in upstate New York. A static, black and white, provincial landscape, full of emptiness, animal farms and a lonely car racing the empty streets. In a world that once was at a constant fight, the things that used to be considered important now seem so strange. The one and only thing that still exists is the gravity; things do not fall apart.
This artwork was created in the context of ENTER project, an initiative of Onassis Foundation. Onassis Stegi and Onassis USA give artists from all around the world 120 hours to create from home a series of new original commissions; sharing their new reality.
