András Ladocsi: SWALLOW, 2018.
I was a professional swimmer between the ages of 4 and 18. I spent
these 14 years doing the following: training, traveling, being at training
camps, missing out trainings because of friends, ignoring my family,
missing my family and then spending time with my family all this
characterized my life. The series what I am working on now is about this
period of my life. Each group of people can be considered as a micro
community with their own rules in which participants have to learn how
to live to be able to succeed. Some find their ways; others do not even
try. I tried hard to assimilate to each community I belonged to and I found
out that they know different personas in me. Changing gestures, voices
and mimics came to my mind when I recall that period. In retrospect
I experienced a lot of things in the past I did not even notice back then.
While looking back I am trying to understand the past now through
the images of SWALLOW.
