Trittico: Human Installation II III I

The work merges my Human Installations in a single performance of strong emotional impact. It is inspired by José Saramago: "Like all young men the son of Joseph and Mary was born in his motherís dirt and blood, in the sticky mucus, suffering in silence". My encounter with the american artist Ron Athey was essencial to the creation of this work. Extreme body art and Christian iconography (here a real crucifixion takes place using body suspension and needles are used to provoke tears of blood), the transition from woman to man, the naked bodies and the nuances of gender (women and men biological and transexual) allows parallels between the human and the devine self determination (the Word becomes flesh, God becames man). The work combines the concepts of Judith Butlerís queer theory and Stelarc's considerations on body. "Kyrahm and Julius are Captain Achab of the new body trans-oceanic frontier of existence, able to stop and recreate the world, where poetry becomes the human sacrifice that yields itself (by choice) and suffers (in spite of it)". (Fioramanti)

Molto proprio MOLTO forte.
Il discorso sulla maschera e su ciò che essa cela e/o evidenzia è sempre profondamente "disturbante" in una società che vive di fittizie e perciò celebrate certezze.
