FABIO MAURI

In performance Ideologia e natura from 1973 a young girl, dressed in the uniform of the Italian Fascist Youth, repeatedly dresses and undresses in an increasingly illogical manner, revealing the cancellation of value imposed by the power of currency and the painful deprivation of willingness and personal arbitrariness in the context of dictatorial regimes.

MARCELLO MALOBERTI

La voglia matta, 2013 is a performance in which the central focus consists of a large marble monolith atop of which four people raise and lower the same number of beach towels, giving life to provisional, unstable and nomadic architecture. During the inaugural days, Bolida #1, #2, #3...#55, 2013 also takes place in which about fifty boys and girls carry wooden tables which hold unusual pseudo-modernist sculptures around the block. These objects will then be arranged around the block, which in the mind of the artist, becomes a center of gravity and a catalyst for cosmic phenomena.

FRANCESCA GRILLI

Fe₂O₃, Ossido ferrico, 2013, includes the presence of a performer who vocalizes by interacting with the pace of dripping water on a large iron slab. The corrosive effect of water on the metal triggers the transformation of the material, a concrete symbol of the power of persistence and recurrence. At the same time, the voice of the singer, who suffers the consequences of repeated stress and repetition, is the ultimate manifestation of the will to exist.

  • May 29th, 30th, 31st, 2013 | at 11.30 AM, 12.30 PM, 3.30 PM and 5 PM (duration 15 minutes)
  • From June 1st to November 24th, 2013| everyday at 4 PM

SISLEJ XHAFA

Parallel Paradox, 2013. Among the branches of a tree a barber receives his customers and when the performance ends, on the sign, along with a mirror and the rope ladder needed to get there remain: one of the main places where, public opinion is formed is thus decontextualized. The performance underlines and stresses the social and symbolic value of the barbershop, a place in which intimate and private gestures of cutting hair are accompanied with moments of discussion and sharing.
