Andrea Loreni perceives and intends the idea of crossing as well as the physical traversing as a movement on a marked line, made in a specific space and at a specific time. Each crossing is a choice, the choice to bring one’s own energy to vibrate together with the energy of a place, of a context, natural or urban. It is a moment of extreme suspension and at the same time of maximum rootedness in the“here and now”. The crossing is not only the point of arrival of a journey, the result of a great physical and mental effort, it is also a powerful means of awareness, in which it is possible to connect with irrational instincts and primal fears.
Walking on the cable through the void creates the opportunity to meet the deepest parts of himself and to be with what “happens” in the moment: the outbreak of fear and, consequently, the acceptance of fear, the quieting of thought and the concentration on the present moment, being in the body with the cable and on the cable, the risk of falling and the contact with the absolute.
