Yuri Ancarani

  • Yuri Ancarani’s films are quasi-hypnotic devices; following highly unique bodily and site-specific choreographies, drawing sensitive portraits of human relations. Having been awarded numerous prizes in various festivals, the artist is renowned in both the visual art and the documentary film scenes, His preferred mode of presentation is to show his films in gallery spaces, where spectators can experience the physical presence of the images in different ways. Ancarani works without a precise script, choosing instead a process that favors an experiential depiction of the subject and location, and the creative use of film production techniques. There is not necessarily a discernable narrative in his work, but rather compositions of images or sequences that might be isolated from one another in a discontinuous way without disrupting the coherence of the film. Central characters are often loci for an analysis of certain types of masculinity. The director selects moments in which the expressiveness of the body highlights the rituals through which such behaviors are perpetuated.
