OUTSIDE SPACES OF THE ESTATE TENUTA DELLO SCOMPIGLIO   FROM 5 PM ON

6 APRIL 2019

Mariana Rocha
Finita

PERFORMED BY TEN WOMEN

winning project of the open call of death and dying


Death represents a certain otherness, an unknowing to any discourse or text, and is inscribed into our selfunderstanding. It has become a product within hyper-consumerist capitalism, with tortured and dead bodies becoming commodities to be traded and utilized for profit in an age of impunity and governmental austerity. The performance Finita is part of a “mourning of the self” performances series, where for 3 hours, many women write with a black pen the word “morta” (dead) on their faces until they turn completely black. With the increasing violence against women, and working with the uncanny circuits operating in connection with the production and circulation of death, and its relationship with the political economic history of colonization, social violence and extreme poverty, focusing on the body, stolen from its own control, which no longer belongs to itself and has become an object in the hands of others, either in the hands of the state or in the hands of a crime, Finita aims to portray the female body in a context of death, torture, patriarchal imprisonment and vulnerability and brings the questions of how do we carry our own corpse? How do we carry our dead double?
