I, M & P
I. Hi M and hi P. Where are you at the moment?
M. There is no space.
P. I’m where the steel steels itself. For M there aren’t options left. But M, you have a location, right?
M. Yes, but no space.
I. What’s the location?
M. It’s not about you being in the hotel’s lobby right now and it’s not about the hotel’s position. This is not a fact. The delocalization of “here” The delocalization of “here” The delocalization of “here” The delocalization of “here” The delocalization of “here” The delocalization of “here” The delocalization of “here” The delocalization of “here” The delocalization of “here”
P. It’s where the water moves itself at its best.
M. What means space and what means repetition? I have no idea.
I. And the tension between elements?
P. It’s the drool.
I. Yes, every tableau calls a drool.
IMP. The drool goes on!

Emiliano Aversa works exclusively with the medium of video. His works can be seen as real video tableau: spaces in which the image occurs. In his work he tries to activate a process of involution or repurification of the concept of pure cinema, considering its historical evolution in search of an a priori in which the moving image reveals itself for what it is. An aurora that Aversa calls “Cineflex:” a “cine” reduced to the bone that in looking for its own movement flexes, flexes the movement, brings it back to its origin, and reiterates it. Such a creative approach takes the infinite expressive modes that the moving image brings with it into account; and such freedom indifferently includes the use of abstract or representative images that consequentially lose their character as fixed elements, becoming their own movement, evolving within a space where spatial editing gives time to space and vice versa. Duration, evolution, rhythm, quietness, acceleration, obsessive repetition, moving painting, thing concept, time not as general time but as the flesh of the video and space intended as duration are characteristic features of his works – praise of the surface.
