AMAUROSIS Pictures by Monia Montali Music : Minamo 7 min, 2007 The images, born between Tangier and Dakar, Sahara desert, leak into existence from the world surrounding, a fiction that is built by the life of a place, places of which I cannot speak or have nothing about which to report, as I refuse to become the image that is desired or expected of the places I've been or the people I have met. All that remains is a blinding light and characters who wander around and occupy an empty space that absorbs them. A floating state, a balance between settling and dismissing, in which the environment and predicament provokes a feverish state of mind. The untiring desert leads, until to the return, and then settles upon the bodies the presence of an unbearable absence.
