AUTOBIOGRAPHICAL DIARY, NARRATIVE OF AN DIFFICULT, RADICAL BUT YET LUCID QUEST, LIVED AT NIGHT, MIXING SEX, WANDERINGS, SUFFERING AND DRUGS, ANTICORPS OFFERS A VERTIGINOUS SUBMERSION INTO THE NIGHT THAT FORGES THE REFLECTION LED BY ANTOINE D'AGATA ON THE BALANCE OF POWER BETWEEN TWO ANTAGONIST WORLDS.
From social alienation to the solidarity of the flesh, from immorality to the transparency of amorality.
« THE SLOW SINKING OF A MAN WITHOUT TIES, WHO HAD SURVIVED A LONG JOURNEY, WHICH IS REPEATED FROM ROOM TO ROOM. »
As a full-fledged actor in the program he condemns himself to live, d'Agata is required to strictly follow - and through the experience of the body - this demanding system. Anticorps retraces a photographic practice that is inseparable from a certain way of understanding existence, where risk, desire, unconsciousness and chance remain the essential elements. No moral attitude, simply the ethics of the affirmation that it is necessary, to explore certain universes, to share them until the end.
