Overwhelmed Till The Yearning, 2016
Performance, Installation
Ex Ospedale dei Bastardini, Bologna, Italy

 

A five hour live drawing performance with a sound composition created by Daniel Basilio. A forty-five meters square of paper were installed on the floor of the internal hall of the ‘Ex Ospedale dei Bastardini’ in Bologna, to host my aleatory, intimate and repetitive gesture for the first time proposed publicly. A drawing, on different shades of blue pastels oil, conceived bringing together the dimensionality of the space with mine. The organic sound track created in dialogue with the performance accompanied the event.
After the 5 hours of drawing performance, I dismembered the drawing in parts and offered to the last visitors present in the space.

La mia pratica sperimentale, aleatoria e intima è stata qui proposta per la prima volta in forma pubblica. Dopo avere ricoperto di carta lo spazio a terra dell’Ex Ospedale dei Bastardini a Bologna, (in cui si stava svolgendo un festival che indagava pratiche di sconfinamento tra linguaggi artistici e non) ho performato disegnando per circa 5 ore, mentre suonava una traccia organica creata in dialogo con la performance dal compositore brasiliano Daniel Basilio.
