Grinding, sliding, leaping: skateboarding is definitely the subject here. In February 2000, after reading the complete works of Baudrillard, two characters and a camera re-enact the practice in an indoor setting. Boardless, objectless skateboarding, detached from any specific site, except everyday life.Thus everyday places and objects may become spaces to be activated. Here, skateboarding is removed from its original context; the essential object’s absence reveals other aesthetics characteristics of this urban activity, such as adaptability and attraction to form and shapes. By the way, the final step for an entertainment society would probably be to discard everything but its own essential nature: pure action. That’s all there is to it. T.B/L.V -2001.
