Paris, 2002

Here Pettena returns to the theme of the architectural project developed in the form of a performance that uses the body to produce an effect of working of space poised between the real and the imaginary.

Apart from the simple coup de théâtre, the figure that descends to the river and then vanishes into it produces elements of imagination but, compelling an attention to and awareness of space, ends up making them physical for the viewer with the same value as elements of a real context.
