Sculture Like Social Body

 

 

SCULTURA like Social Body

Marinoni al mare Theater, Venice, Italy 2013.

Performance, video arte , objects construction.

Construction, rescued objects and documentary video which tells the experience of sociological character of a group of artists, architects, musicians, and dancers who transform, through the occupation and battle with public and private entities, the abandoned infrastructure of a hospital of the 50´s located in Venice’s Lido – Italy, a Self-supporting Cultural Center where its spaces have become a library, dance halls, and an architecture’s office, furnished with rescued and reused furniture, benefiting this way the surrounding communities.

As an artist I ponder about this event taking it to a sensitive and metaphoric level; the old hospital complex seen as a sculpture at a big scale, molded through artistic action, turning it into a body of gatherings and human relations that alter the environment and its mundaneness.
