“… slowly does the world breathe in my breath”
Who has ever wondered if there is a great beyond?
VIGOR MORTIS tells us about the other side of life, about the land of the unknown. Vigor Mortis is a story of nightmares and daydreams, a tragicomic journey from heaven to the unfathomable of the human soul, an expulsion from the abode as a metaphor of the banishment of one’s own life.
VIGOR MORTIS is built in the shelter of the unusual or miraculous character of the ordinary. It is shown in the detail of the gestures, in the silent melancholy of the eyes, in the affective uncertainty of the everyday. Mutable beings that flow and exhale with hilarity and heartbreak the memory of life into lasting death, beings that stir against the tremors of fate. Farewell, abandonment, remoteness of the places that are perpetuated in the flight, vertigo by the void that is twisted in the convulsions of the last departure.
