film 16 mm noir et blanc, 16 minutes
is a film divided into several chapters. It is based on a conversation
between friends, between artists. As time goes on, the actors become
older, and the directors film a different movie.
1, a film co-directed by Carsten Holler, Philippe Parreno and Rirkrit
Tiravanija, was filmed in Milano in 1995 (produced by Studio Guenzani).
The scenario is based on a conversation that took place between Höller,
Parreno and Tiravanija. The conversation, which was recorded, was later
modified so that each actor would say the same number of words. The
conversations are not assigned so that each actor represents one artist;
rather they are arranged along a temporal sequence. There is no real
beginning, nor a real ending, thereby making Vicinato 1 an excerpt of
a longer conversation , one that is to be followed. The shooting was
made on 16 mm black and white film, based on the style of Antonioni's
films from the 60s. The location was a roof in Milan.
