Adam was Here

"Adam was here." HD video, sound, 13' 00'', 2010

A statement, a tag on a wall, A place to be. Genk.

What will happen if our ancestor Adam could rise and live again without the moral limitations the modern society dictates? With this question in mind, Italian artist Riccardo Fabiani tried to involve the population in a complex project about freedom and free will, offering four minutes of free audition to anyone who wanted to show his or her version of a modern Adam. Adam was later choosen between the participants and a wicked short story was prepared and filmed in Genk.

The modern Adam wakes up in a abandoned mine site, with no knowledge of modern age. In few minutes we see what he could become in our rude and careless world. Television and everyday violence makes him react in uncontrollable ways, leading him on a violent spree, until the circular ending, when he choose to leave this time again, to return into oblivion. A brief and ironic vision on modern times, a question about the role and extent of freedom we have in our everyday life.
