What happens when a circle begins? You know the circle will end. The matter is how, is it gonna end. (The matter is, how can you know how is it gonna end?)

Urban life has become a labyrinth of isolation. Never feeling at home, the inability to communicate, both factors of a painful human existence. I met Asan in Paris. I've been engaged by his anxious escaping and seeking, hiding and revealing himself, involved in his nomadic and visceral relation with people and spaces. For over a year I've been traveling across Europe and Asia, into the cities where he grew up. To me he is not only a person but also a symbol. Through his unique personality and outlook, I have witnessed the complex relationship between man and his environment. “Asankojo” focuses on an intimate story in order to analyze contemporary living conditions.
