The Swimmer, a social allegory and in an cryptic way shows us flashes of allienation, competition , and the fragmentation of the individual self that will finally and dramatically lead us to mental disorder or death. A sequence used as an allegory of the power relationships , its invisible structures and mechanisms that seduce and persuade us, that condition our aspirations and personal wishes.
The video projection is supported by a series of lightboxes that recreate images of the story.
