Lessons is born as a video tutorial to explain how to fall down without getting hurt. In some video channels like youtube you can find constantly "homemade" videos from different people who give advices or explain sport exercises, tricks, etc. In the video I explain different exercises to fall down correctly: you have to train the flexibility, balance and strength.
The video was recorded in the hall of my parents' house, where I actually live and work. My artist's studio is located in a common area or "home". With this piece I try to portray a moment that many artists are suffering, the precariousness art world and the side effects of the financial crisis makes us constantly fall and adpat to different circumstance. However, the work can be read from many perspectives.
