Mare Nostrum by Paolo Vivian is a video impression and symbolist poetry, dedicated to the inner journey in search of the boundaries of hope. the sea as a symbol of a rich inner life. The world of shadows and dreams. Impalpable. Floating. Overwhelming. The Sea - slight, quiet, sensual, fragile, infatuated, timeless, irresistible. How it is the love. The black sea - cold, dangerous. The occult sea that it hides the memories of the trips after the hope for a meaningful life. The mare nostrum - constantly moving and constantly changing. The sea of ​​fear of pains. The sea of ​​power and ecstasy.  The work of  Vivian is the silent conversation of future memories and boundaries within us. The artist has used a banal object of everyday life and  he has created an unreal world of hypnotic beauty and spiritual metamorphosis. With the transmutation of forms with color spillover - those of the spirit and those of the passion, Vivian draws a thin borderline between life and death, between Heaven and Earth. The cubes of photographic installation shown in its memory are used by the artist for its symbolic games where the primary elements of the sea become as the tools for discovery of the secrets of the cosmos essence and inner awakening.
