Vestire gli ignudi

Le Maschere Nude

L'Uomo, la Bestia e la Virtù (2017) ©Allegue

Le Maschere Nude explora la memoria íntima y colectiva. Basándome en testimonios y archivos administrativos, utilizo principalmente la pintura, el dibujo y la fotografía para volver visibles historias que aun no se han contado, para retratar y recomponer memoria(s).

El dibujo, la tela, los colores desgarrados y la noción de origen son los protagonistas de estos trabajos. La tela es destejida para revelar lo que precede la composición de la imagen: la Nada original que forma parte integral de la imagen y sin embargo desaparece del cuadro a medida que lo vamos componiendo.

Quiero volver visible este origen, perfecto reflejo del carácter intangible de la memoria, caprichosa, en movimiento permanente, esta memoria que travestimos, que nuestra mente procura retener y que se nos escapa. Pero esta memoria que, nos guste o no, cava sus huellas en lo más profundo de nuestro ser.

Disorient (2016)

During our lecture-performance at the Museo CAV La Neomudéjar, I painted Valentina Lacmanovic’s kimono whilst she slowly spun on her axis, in front of the audience. She had put a square plastic on the floor, indicating with round plates made of glass the four cardinal points.

In the centre of this earthly square, turning our back to the East (Orient), Valentina started to spin, whilst I (whirling around her) was sheding the red coloured paint on her back. The paint could only have been shed. Its trajectory could only be vertical: the gravity and the axis of the movement were manifested.

WORDLESS:

painting | music | artist book

The WORDLESS: project emerges from the encounter with Slovac composer Julius Fujak. We exchanged musical and painted letters that we sent to each other through traditionnal post during nearly one year. Musical compositions responded to painted textures; colours responded to notes. Those letters also composed an artist book that gathers music and image.

Project curated by Arianna Callocchia (IT).
