Very happy to announce my new manager for Italy - Mauro Diazzi of Just in Time (very happy of his ninja collaborator Silvia Marasti). Honored to be in a roster besides Meredith Monk, Brian Eno, La Fura dels Baus, UTE LEMPER and many other artists which had been my inspiration for many years!
Commissioned by Cusumano Masterpieces with the endorsement of INGV and the Etna Park, this work is a real life-changing experience, giving me a rare privilege to create an intimate dialogue with such an amazing land.
It had came to an end three amazing weeks of intense shooting and recordings in preparation of my largest monographic exhibition ever "Three grades of foreignness" - 2600 square meters of beautiful ex-industrial spaces that will host from April 22 2017 three large scale installations and other sonic/visual artworks in the Fondazione La Fabbrica del Cioccolato in Blenio Valley in Switzerland!!! three amazing weeks of recording and filming work in the middle of the most stunning imaginable nature.
The shoot involved seven dancers from different cultural and artistic realities, and took place under the expert guidance of Philip Genucchi and Marco Bassi, in more than thirty locations selected in the valley. The result has been reflected in more than seven hours of footage and hundreds of photographs, which will be part of one of the three installations proposed during the exhibition.
in Huge thanks to the participating artists: the dancers soloists - Sandra Klimek, Ornella Balestra, Ballone Stefania, Marta Mazzoleni, Anita Lorusso, SL Chiesa & Laûren Okadigbo, to the production team Filippo Genucchi & Marco Bassi, to the assistants Maria Pia Hartpence-Casella & Leticia Beltré, to the vice president of the Fabbrica,Giovanni Casella Piazza for a wonderful hospitality and to the curator of the exhibition and the artistic director of the Fabbrica Franco Marinotti for his trust, inspiration and guidance.
