The video was created during the COVID-19 lock-down in March 2020. It was commissioned by Bündnis internationaler Produktionshäuser from Germany.
Physis is the body of nature. Beautiful, graceful and sublime – and yet, at the same time cruel, violent, disgusting and painfully pragmatic. Aristotle defined physis in the relationship between the natural and the artificial. Nature (physis) is its own source of movement, while art (techne) always requires a source of motion outside of itself. In this sense, the human body is a territory of tension between techne and physis and an eternal battleground of culture, ideology, religion.
Our bodies are still colonized by the law of nature, our minds are obsessed with control, mastery and liberation. Our intimate politician requires control of the body and introduces protocols that will liquidate the language of pain forever. Our hidden anarchist protests that we should let the body to speak and accept the rules of a primary chaos. Video Physis was created as a study of the new Via Negativa project based on the research of the body as a culturally, ideologically and
religiously conditioned medium to establish a distinction between sick and healthy, good and bad, useful and useless, beautiful and ugly, sublime and degenerate, and all other possible conceived antinomies that have been introduced by the human mind into philosophical, scientific and art discourse.
