A Pink Old Man tries to bring about the incarnation in the material world of a pink flamingo from an immaterial world. This pink flamingo is cloned so that it will ineluctably die among its fellow beings in the material world.
The computer-generated and filmed images that create the hybrid aesthetic of Phoenix 93 are made at once interdependent and incompatible by the narrative structure. A breach between an immaterial world and a material world is opened, long enough to allow the ideological image of modified life to take shape in material space, if only to be expelled from it afterwards. The exclusion of the incarnation of the immaterial in the material world is translated by the physical death of the materialised element. Through the symbolism of the failure of this passage, the idea is to question the relation to domination that one living being may have with another living being by objectifying it.
The ruin has pink feathers. It has stopped breathing. In the end it did not fly away, it collapsed, it became lifeless again and is now decomposing.
