Ignavia.    Performance     Milano fashion week 20/01/2015 

 

Ignavia is a performance inspired by the Third Canto of the Divine Comedy. According to Dante, the Ignavi were those who lived “without disgrace and without praise.” They are the souls of the ones who lived without doing neither good nor bad things, never took a stand and accepted everything that was offered and imposed on them. By the law of Counter-Penalty, they are condemned to chase forever after a white flag, completely naked. The performance took place during Milan Fashion Week.The artist wears a white dress, created by her.  The printed neoprene kimono shows the most important brands of the fashion industry. The print has a fading and inside out effect, as if the names touched the garment very quickly and superficially.These faint, evanescent and vague imprints illustrate the frantic series of fashion shows that overturned the cyclical nature of seasons.The artist holds in her hand the first dress she created in her career of fashion designer. It’s a personal memory that fills the performance with meaning.In front of Armani and FENDI headquarters in Milan,  the artist stands still in the middle of traffic for 1 hour and 45 minutes.She lets everything else go by, circulate around her in a blur, while journalists, bloggers and pedestrians surround her are filming the performance with their phones. 

 

Ignavia è una performance ispirata al III° cantico della Divina commedia. Per Dante gli Ignavi erano coloro che vissero “sanza’ nfamia e sanza lodo” Anime che in vita non operarono ne’ il bene ne’ il male, non prendendo mai posizione e accettando ogni cosa proposta e imposta. Per contrappasso sono condannati per l’eternità a correre nudi dietro una bandiera bianca.La performance è stata realizzata durante la Milan fashion week. L’artista indossa un kimono in neoprene stampato, la stampa mostra i marchi delle più importanti maison del sistema moda,  in dissolvenza e rovesciati, come se i nomi fossero venuti in contatto con il capo velocemente e in modo superficiale. Queste lievi impronte evanescenti e confuse testimoniano il susseguirsi vorticoso delle sfilate che ha sovvertito la ciclicità delle stagioni. L’artista ha in mano il primo abito realizzato nella sua carriera da fashion designer , è un ricordo personale che si riempie di significati in questa performance. Dinnazi al quartier generale prima di Armani e poi di Fendi a Milano, l’artista in mezzo al traffico rimane immobile per un'ora e 45 minuti , lasciando che tutto intorno a lei scorresse vorticosamente,i giornalisti, i blogger e i passanti riprendono la performance con i cellulari.
