The weekend of performances will also see the realization of a special participative event in the frame of the European project COMFORT ZONE! Democracy and e-democracy thank to life skills improvement, participative cultural researches and creative laboratories (October the 13th, invitation enclosed!)
The performances in the bunker:
Friday, Oct. 13 at 6 p.m. (and again on Saturday, Oct. 14 at 5 p.m.) will feature the durational performances “Covered” by Marta Lodola and “Wasted” by Zosia Zoltkowski.
Covered / Marta Lodola
Durational performance (approx. 2 hours)
The female body is at the center of paradox: the male gaze wants it to adhere to the parameters of the “ideal body” (a model imposed by what sexual attractiveness should be), parameters that, however, do not correspond to what the body actually is in nature.
By subverting the canon of the pictorial female nude, the artist operates a reappropriation of her own autonomy through dressing.
In her performance, the artist progressively wraps her body with a ball of red wool: the thread becomes like a second skin, an instrument of elevation toward self-empowerment and a means of de-colonization from the male gaze.
Wasted / Zosia Zoltkowski
Durational performance (approx. 1 hour)
Wrapped in a layer of plastic (a clear evocation of the pollution that suffocates the planet), Zosia seeks cohabitation with a system that manipulates her living space and restricts her movement through transparent walls: a metaphor for the female experience, equated with the environmental experience.
The artist gives us back an ambivalent process: it is easy to feel the danger of suffocation, but at the same time it is possible to identify a movement that allows one to subvert this condition of limitation from within.
The artist’s body symbolizes metamorphosis and awareness, in a necessary yet daring skin-to-skin dance with the plastic fleece.
Admission to the special workshop/event is free but seats are limited!
