In her video installation YOUR TERRITORY Florine Leoni explores grey areas and personal boundaries in everyday socio-spatial contexts. Two narratives of isolation and social responsibility derived from interviews serve as a point of departure. They are complemented by found footage from the Internet and in the case of YOUR TERRITORY: KASIA PARCURA also by specially recorded footage, whereby the mediated gaze creates connections between the personal space of each individual and his/ her immediate environment. The various levels are further interwoven by site-specific spatial interventions, which cause visual space and physical space to merge and their boundaries to blur. Leoni constructs an enigmatic narrative space that confronts the viewer with models of interpersonal behaviour and allows him/ her to experience emotional shifts ranging from involvement to exclusion. The interwoven visual, auditory and textual layers engage each viewer’s imagination and personal interpretations, thus allowing his/her combination of elements to become an integral part of the work.
