Semiotics of an Empty Space
05:20 minutes
Semiotics of an Empty Space is a video made in an abandoned foundry.
Inside the big and silent building, very little remains of the original machinery and production equipment.
Although the subjects (ashes, bell, cross, direction...) are listed in alphabetical order (the title alludes to Semiotics of the Kitchen, a Martha Rosler ‘70 piece), a sense of irreversibility defines the whole work.
Semiotics of an Empty Space depicts a spiritual journey, a sort of mystical experience, around a place, more imagined than showed, a place where to throw doubts and raise questions about absences and changes, life and death.
