They Sing a Song Only You Can Hear 17 August - 23 August 2021
The title from the series comes from an anonymous quote about the intimate connection between lovers and incorrectly has been attributed to the famous wit Oscar Wilde.
The series builds up onto an experiential situation and develops the problem that arises after the end of a relationship, while extending to the redefinition of personal identities.
It attempts to visualize the internal situation experienced by the people in transition who are entering in a temporary situation, knowing that the old one is dying and wishes to move to a new condition. Through this initial uncomfortable process, which was characterized by feelings of emptiness, uncertainty, fear and tension, the ones experiencing it, are called upon to confront themselves, their desires and lick their wounds in order to reconnect with themselves.
Lost in empty and wild places, into rooms or into the nature, they are able to communicate and express their emotions. Having no fear to show their true self throughout the transition, they keep moving forward, singing their own song and looking to be heard by the ones who have felt and experienced feelings of loneliness and share the knowledge that no price is too high to pay for owning your own voice.
