Never Walk Alone

I heard the song You’ll Never Walk Alone in the late eighties for the first time, during the broadcast of one of Liverpool FC matches. The singing of the audience and the melody that roared trough Anfield determined the way I grew up at large, and the shirt which I got at my own insistence shortly after the broadcast remained as a memory on this early fascination. This very shirt which I have owned for three decades now serves as a basis for the creation of Never Walk Alone. The print applied to the fabric moves in artificial conditions and simulates the movement of a flag in the wind, with the clenched fist and the red and white scarf, You’ll newer walk alone written below. The video is displayed on a monitor fixed to a fence which serves to guide the audience at commercial events or to prevent demonstrators to break through protected areas. The artefact from the past moves and simulates the monumental show of a flag in the wind mounted on a metal barricade, demystifying the fragility of a symbol as well as the implication it potentially produces in an individual or in certain systems.
