Along the harbour’s edge, the image of a ballerina shimmers as if on a dream. Ballerina conjures the desire of young artists to reach the infinite through their artistry. The work uses light as a compositional tool, played across 20 silhouettes. A figurative sequence of a cyclical ballet repeats endlessly and is perfectly synchronized with its soundtrack. Stroboscopic effects call to mind a succession of shots from some sort of photographic memory, made up of significant but never completely perceptible visions.

In this dreamlike context, the ballerina of light dances on and on, performing steps, pirouettes and arabesques in an eternal solo. She is barely aware of the architecture, pathways, banisters, lamp posts, benches and audience around her. Instead, she is totally absorbed on her stage – the water – with its reflections that fondly embrace the whole city.
