Live performances are moments in which the artist trying to establish physical interactions between material and immaterial worlds. Performed in solitary or in front of and audience can trigger new forms of energy and channel the Messages. With durational performances (sometime they last 4-6 hours), the artist gets close to a spiritual dimension, reaching a mental and corporal synergy.

                     DURATION : 35 MINUTES


       

 

 

Agape

 

The performance is set at the field of Mutonia, in Santarcangelo di Romagna.

Agape (Ancient Greek: ἀγάπη, agápē); ancient form of Love 

The video begins with sound of the blowtorch. A big painted cow leather is standing on an iron loom. In the middle of it there is a hole. The two leather flaps are assembled side by side.Throughout this performance, the artist wants to recreate, now with fire, the energy that bursts forth from the encounter of two entity.In this meeting and this exchange of energy, Agape manifests itself.

The high temperature of the fire makes the oil and the leather react chemically. The work begins to change, the leather stiffens and the color penetrates the surface engaging. The stains change shape and crystallize, forming like a scars. When the performer leaves the place, people start approaching the artwork still smoking.

 

 

Agape

 

La performance è stata realizzata al campo di Mutonia a Sant’Arcangelo di Romagna.

Agape dal greco ἀγάπη, agápē, arcaica forma d'amore

Il video si apre con il suono della fiamma ossidrica. Una grossa pelle bovina dipinta a olio è su un telaio di ferro. I due lembi di pelle montati l’uno accanto all’altro. L’artista con questa performance vuole ricreare con il fuoco, l’energia che si crea dall’incontro tra due entità.

Da questo scambio di energia, Agape, si manifesta.

L’alta temperatura del fuoco fa si che l’olio e la pelle reagiscano chimicamente, il lavoro inizia a modificarsi, la pelle si irrigidisce e il colore penetra sulla superficie, le macchie si ridisegnano e si cristallizzano creando come cicatrici.

L'audience per tutta la performance rimane lontano dall' azione, solo quando la performer lascia la scena dal buoi del campo le persone si avvicinano all'opera ancora fumante.
