Valerio Polici: Ergo Sum
The graffiti subculture offers redemption from anonymity and an escape into a parallel dimension where there is a sense of finally being special. Incursions, climbing, darkness, adrenaline. Writers transform into modern knights, errant, condemned to eternal wander.
For six years, I’ve travelled from Europe till Argentina, following several groups of graffiti writers in their mental odyssey between the intestinal spaces of the metropolis. They are searching for an adventure that will never come, because all of the possible scenarios are already drawn.
That’s the waltz of the existential, clandestine state of being.
"A vertiginous rush of adrenalin, thrill and constructed chaos."
"Very artful series. Reminds 'The Warriors' movie from the 70's."
"Incredible stories of a life lived on the edge."
