Adrian Paci, Inside the Circle, 2012, b/n, suono, 6’33”, loop
Adrian Paci’s Inside the Circle is a six-and-a-half-minute, black and white movie of interactions between a white horse and its trainer in a round, rustic pen.
The video Inside the Circle was developed during the RAVE East Village Artist Residency 2011 in Trivignano, with Tiziana Pers and the horse Tor De Chirincito. Set inside the training ring, the film explores the complex dynamics between man, animal and nature through an interaction between the horse and the young woman.
“The trainer, as it happens, is a remarkably attractive woman, and like the horse, she is naked. Human time dances with animal time” (The News York Times, June 7, 2012, p. C26).
