“Fall” is an allegorical portrait created by editing older footage for the exhibition “Coming of age” (M. Cacoyiannis Foundation, Athens, Greece, 2018) and it synopsizes in a symbolic way the harsh and tough side of growing old: a series of falls, which rhythmically thicken as the video progresses, refer conceptually to hits and consequently wounds. Our personal identity is “sculptured” by all these falls.
