Video Viaggio:

from travelogue to screening - the video explorations of Giuliano Lombardo

"All our activities are tied to the idea of travel. And I like to think that our brain has an information system that tells us where to go, and I think that's the spur of our restlessness". What Bruce Chatwin loved most in traveling was the idea of conquering an interior, self-analytic freedom. To explore one's self through solitude and absence of collective rituals. Travel is an elementary discovery of one's self in relation to the world, but also the desire to find a place in reality for dreams and illusions through an ideal form of improvisation, often combined with a personal taste for self-narration. We can find this is Giuliano Lombardo's Video Travels. We find the aspiration to conceive traveling as an interior journey, not just an aesthetic one. It doesn't matter if the artist covers long or short distances, if he goes from Rome to Lecce or from his home to another part of the city. Traveling is crossing: a place, a city, one or many stories. It means opening up: towards people or towards one person or towards the other, of whom we often know nothing. Video Travels are real distances, covered by car or by train, from a certain geographical site to another, without this having any particular relevance. They begin when the protagonist (who we don't see) leaves his house or leaves from a train station, and it ends with the arrival at destination shortly before the video is projected. The narration is constructed during its own happening: the artwork is made of a translation of reality into a private form. Even though the improvisation of the eye or the attention for sound appears to be predominant (for example the sound of train wheels might become music), the realization of the video is the result of few, invisible behavior rules, rules the artist uses to confront reality, in the concrete attempt to find art in everyday life."
