I can reach you (from one to many) reflects on the idea of meeting, observed on linguistic, emotional, relational and political levels.
The artists involved share a common factor within various relationships between bodies, thoughts, cultures, and communities, and over the course of several residency periods at the Tenuta Dello Scompiglio, they have devised three projects that will take shape from October 2015 to March 2016, developing a dialogue with their context, and in successive stages, through gatherings, dislocation and refocussing.
Born as a collective meditation developed between the artists and curators, I can reach you develops from the works presented at the inauguration and proceeds to successive horizons in a series of events.
Bianco-Valente present an environmental installation that occupies the large exhibition space: Frequenza Fondamentale immerses us in a place that is at once distant and internal, sidereal and intimate. The installation combines various lights and a range of sounds that move the space, evoking the mass and velocity of revolving planets in the solar system. Bianco-Valente create a pulsating and immersive experience that causes the visitor to move, to find a position, to feel the resonance inside the body and outside amongst the bodies.
A work-in-progress, Dove il passo by Claudia Losi focusses on the plurality of the experiences of the artist during a walking trip from Piacenza to Scompiglio. The walk is interpreted as a cognitive act in which the sensory places (landmarks) are identified, assumed as such by their physical characteristics or by events, even distant, which carry traces: points of geographical-emotional density, along which run perceptual experiences (colour, time, distance, fatigue) and narratives gathered from her own history or from other voices collected on her journey.
Una domanda che cammina by Valerio Rocco Orlando, is a study centred on the idea of the wandering pilgrim and hospitality as a relational moment, and develops as an installation that, over several stages, gradually reveals the process of construction of the work and causing the public to be a participant in the drama of the work. The first stage, for the inauguration at the Tenuta Dello Scompiglio, commits the artist to a conversation with one person at a time, aimed at defining the content for future phases, at Lucca and Altopascio, where the installation will be presented in its final form.
A calendar of events up to the finissage on 28 February 2016 will be announced in the next weeks.
In the course of the programme, which combines curatorial design with the artists’ visions, the exhibition space will expand both geographically, beyond the confines of the Tenuta Dello Scompiglio, and in time, requiring new appraisals in the presence of the public.
