Piu' o meno positivi #6

'Communication' is the theme of the 6th edition of the 'Piu o Meno Positivi'Festival for the sensibilization on HIV, which takes place in the heart of the city of Trieste this December.
For 4 days, the public can get free and anonymous HIV tests, see exhibitions, participate in special events and lectures.  
I am more than happy to participate in the event with an interactive installation, which will run throughout the four days of the festival. A Common Thread aims to create a platform for people to experience different points of view on HIV, communicate and share their ideas and personal experiences.
If you are around Trieste do come by Palazzo Costanzi, piazza Piccola 2 and take a look!

BI_ONTE



For the past month, I had the great pleasure to be collaborating with one of the most fascinating photographers from Trieste Nika Furlani and my always favourite curator Massimo Premuda, to construct a small in-progress performance for the closing event of the current exhibition in Double Room Gallery. 
'BODIFICATION, the body as a cultural object' is an exhibition dedicated to the transformations and modifications of the contemporary body, which becomes more and more fragmented and the process of its reconstruction even more complex. The performance 'Bi_Onte' was inspired by the current photographic works of Nika, 'Herbalius', and it's an active dialogue between the performer's actions and the visual proposals of the photographer. In this dialogue, fragmented parts of the female body, are recomposed and revealed,hidden in the darkness or exposed to light. From an ancient time-defying statuesque torso made of stone to the blooming eternal spring, the female body transforms and is transformed to reveal notions of its identity as a cultural and social object.

If you are around Trieste on FRIDAY 27th MAY 2016, come by Double Room  for the closing party of BODIFICATION and to see our new piece!

Photos from the Candy GIrl @ Double Room, Trieste - 28/5/2015

          Yesterday, I performed for the 7th time my performance Candy Girl at the Double Room Gallery in Trieste, Italy. The piece was performed as the final event of a series of exhibitions, talks and  performances: TI MANGIO CON GLI OCCHI nuove liaisons alimentari curated by Massimo Premuda





      It was the first time I performed this piece in Trieste and the second time in Italy and it was a very exciting and emotional experience. The participants were involved, interested and after the performance I enjoyed talking to them about my and their experience of the performance. Even after performing it for the 7th time, I think that this performance deeply changes, evolves and transforms every time and becomes a unique experience for both me and the participants. 

         













I would like to give many thanks to the fantastic Giulia Livia of Impatto Visivo Trieste for the fantastic photos and the documentation of the performance as well as for her amazing help! Many thanks also to Massimo Premuda and Valeria Castellaneta for everything!
