This artwork has been created during the artist-in-residence program AIR Ar.Vi.Ma.

SAN NEPOMUCENO is included in the Ar.Vi.Ma. Contemporary art collection at the Collegio Cairoli (Pavia, Italy).

Synopsis
San Nepomuceno is a city located on the west shore of the Ticino river. One night, a guy fell down from the sky.
Concept
The film is composed by one long take, the final perfectly coincides with the beginning. You can loop it and make it infinite. The main references for this artwork are the aphorisms of Emil Cioran and his works on the theme of suicide and antinatalism. The main character of SAN NEPOMUCENO, as a sort of Sisyphus, is forced into an infinite pattern birth-life-suicide-birth. The staging, cold, surgical, motionless, without editing cuts follows an anonymous guy and the flow of his life.
