WINNER, 2024

WINNER is a multichannel film installation, conceived as a three-act dance for film told through the lens of football.

The multichannel film installation is conceived as a three-act dance for film, which echoes the dramaturgy of the game and dissects its socially constructed power hierarchies, crowd psychology, and constant pressure to perform. Through the element of dance, the work restages and radically transforms football’s most impassioned moments: elation and triumph, brutality and ferocity, suffering and defeat.
