written and staged by the performer Silvia Bertocchi on the occasion of her first solo exhibition `` InumanAnomaliA '' at the ME Milan Il Duca Hotel. It starts with an installation, a sort of shocking pink ribbon cage that surrounds the artist for the duration of the performance and excludes the spectators outside. Above the ribbons hang lots of handwritten sheets with all the poems that Silvia will recite in the ensuing 8 minutes. Poetry is the cornerstone of the performance and we therefore find it in three forms: conveyed by the word, written on the sheets and made available to the public who at its discretion can detach and take away the poems from the tape, thus becoming an integral part of the action and in last tattooed on the skin. The artist recites the poems she has tattooed on her hands and arms, thereby establishing herself a connection with the public who will be able to see, hear, read and take home eight minutes of nearby poetry even if separated by tapes. The tapes do not separate, welcome and support words straight from constant visual contact with the viewer.
