Freefall Events, England, Switzerland, 2019. The project aims at an introspective journey of oneself, to explore the relationship between casualties and randomness guiding the human race and the omnipresent condition of loneliness and isolation throughout society since classical times. Alongside the unnoticed catastrophe of rejection, umpredictability bound up within the act of the fall. Solitude condition when coming to world and leaving it has always stressed fears because of its indirect link to isolation and discomfort, where the undeniable statement “ I am alone ” sits silently within our existence and yet is hardly compromisable, as much as occurrences purely left to randomness or events excluded from one's control. To fall is to momentarily lose control over a body, mind or subjectivity, to hand oneself over to another being, or thing. After the isolation, and after the fall, will one still be oneself? will one be able to return oneself reassembling body and psyche, readjusting his relationship to the ground?Falling is both desired and feared, yet is rarely voluntary. Rain falls and night falls, one falls in love and out of, into sleep and towards death; falls into solitude, into despair. Falls into the image, into the projection of the moment one desires. Photography is the paradox and the impossibility, driven by the artist desire, of grasping a moment, the quest to close this gap between oneself and the image, and the inevitable distance which always remains, alongside the desire to be found, to elude his inherited solitude, in the act of undoing his own doom. Photography is a violent wanting to possess what is always beyond reach, in the perpetual process of becoming, eluding the present, always already lost. Freefall Events attempts to be the landscape portrayal of a timelessness environment that mysteriously managed to survive decades of irreparable falls, shaping onto its own individuality, and resisting the modern world upon stochasticity. The photographer reach is the stimulation of that sense of unsettling melancholy and the consequential nostalgia for a scene the viewer has never seen before, within the desire of perpetual fall through an extension of time, an elongated moment.
