I filmed this video in Italy in 2013. I entered a courtyard, drawn in by the sounds of classical music, and became transfixed by this bird who was moving in a surprising, yet obsessive manner. I had the impression it was trying with all its might to look somewhere it is utterly impossible to look, the head pulling its body endlessly up and to the left. Yearning for something unattainable?
How sublime that this bird should fall into dance and acrobatics out of some sickness or injury.
This video inspired a project titled "Possibilis ou l'Inateignable", a performance of what happens just at the moment a limit is pushed past the possible.
