BLACK SUN de ALEXANDRE ARRECHEA
"...His latest video, Black Sun, premiered in Thessaloniki, marries the instability of the animated image of a wrecking ball in the moment of destruction with the apparent solidity of the setting: a large wall receiving the impact of a virtual ball. Here, the work acquires a new dimension as the image is projected over one of the remaining fragments of the original Byzantine wall that surrounded the city providing protection. As if an occurrence proper of Second Life, the psychological impact provoked by this unstable marriage of support and image revives the anxiety of the inevitable failure of violence, and of the failure of power to survive its own fears."
