The video shot at the port of Palermo in 2011 is the continued recovery of a fish struggling between life and death. His body rotates clockwise drawing a circular shape, inscribed in a rectangle frame. The surface broken up by the tail of the fish (by its soul) that, in its perpetual motion, seems anchored to a central point, suspended between the surface (of the sea and of the image) and the water depth (that it is hidden, submerged). Birds by Hossein Alizadeh in collaboration with Djivan Gasparyan, gives a deeper lecture to the images and offers a multicultural atmosphere of the Sicilian and Mediterranean waters and of the port of Palermo.
