Kind of Blue - video installations

BY CECILIA BERTONI
2013

Kind of Blue, Lui e Lei (Him and Her) and Un uomo solo (A Man Alone): three short videos available both for projection and installation. Director Cecilia Bertoni creates video portraits exploring herself and the performers of the two first parts of the Trilogia dell'Assenza (Trilogy of Absence) as people without a role, as if they were nothing else but themselves. These short films, premièred on 18 May 2013, were created for Kind of Blue, as the final part of the trilogy.

In the video "Kind of Blue" the director, Cecilia Bertoni, creates portraits exploring her fellow performers as people without a role, merely themselves. In a circular narrative structure, five stories follow one another, linked by an intimacy that displays itself through environment, objects and the everyday clothes of these same performers. The director explores their physical and mental obsessions and their relationship to creative act. The bathrooms of their own homes, of a hotel or a dilapidated building, become the places in which their secrets, their acts of madness and their disappointments become explicit, while a kitchen becomes the nerve centre of the creation, but also the prelude and the epilogue of an endless wait. A voice off-stage, which the viewer assumes is the narrator, is only seemingly arbitrarily connected.

In the video "Him & Her" the director Cecilia Bertoni creates a portrait of her fellow stage performer, Serge Cartellier, and of herself. Now, however, they are people without a role, merely themselves. Shut in the solitude of a bathroom, they obsessively try to strip the vestiges of memory, erasing space and washing from their bodies the calligraphy and the stories of their experiences. A weaving of images, with two different states of velocity and intensity of editing, in which the unresolvable quarrel with memory comes to life.

"For the synthesis of materic art and visionary inspiration. Two interdependent lives, carried by the performative rhythm of a definitive action, find existential space and shape in an imaginary elsewhere."

In the video "Un uomo solo" ("A Man Alone") the director Cecilia Bertoni creates a portrait of musician and long-time colleague Carl G. Beukman, investigating his physical and mental obsessions and their relationship to creative act. The eye of the camera follows him from an increasingly close-up angle and from above. In the isolated and claustrophobic space of his bathroom, immersed in a bath and surrounded by objects that increasingly reassure him, the action unfolds into a shamanic ritual. Cloaked in his own solitude, he conducts a silent and invisibile orchestra. He will emerge transformed.
