2005, video 9’50”

The final match of the 1982 Football World Championship in Spain. Zeroazero is a video where I aim to depict what occurs in the stadium when two soccer teams engage in a match without a ball.People cheer for nothingness. A player scores a goal, yet the ball is nowhere near the soccer net. The superior team secures the cup without the ball. Where are the individuals we see in the movie? A commendable president, a confident soccer team. Where is Italy, which flourished in the midst of the ’80s? Now we have a red-white-green political party, a beautifully pink sports newspaper, and a vast crowd that believes in the name of the soccer god. However, we lack the object to play with.
