Through my research process I have worked on five main installations, creating the exhibitions; STUDIO DEL FRAGILE (The study of fragility) and STUDIO DEL PRESENTE (The study of the present): ATTO PRIMO, INTERMEZZO, ATTO SECONDO and ATTO TERZO (first act, interlude, second act, third act). I am applying with four of them and this work is referring to STUDIO DEL FRAGILE (floor installation)
STUDIO DEL FRAGILE
The installation interacts with the audience. The floor, composed with fully intact, yet fragile concrete tiles, will cause confusion and encourage (dis)belief as the audience approaches. Here, You are deciding the fate of the artifacts.
The exhibition seeks to highlight the certain coherence between humanity and nature, and the imprints that they cause each other. The interaction between the audience and the exhibited (the artifact) is a direct indicator of this.
THE FIVE INSTALLATIONS
Studio del Fragile The first study emphasized the noticeable fragility of our time, highlighting the certain coherence between humanity and nature, and the imprints that they cause each other. Humans and nature are interacting with the artworks separately and cracks are preserved through time.
Studio del Presente: Atto Primo The first act of the second part of the study, expresses how humanity and nature coexist and interact with each other through time and constant change. We tend to forget to what extent humanity and nature are connected. Two copies of the same artwork are placed indoor and outdoor. The relation and parallels between the artificial and natural are enhanced. Human and nature interact simultaneously, leaving their own marks respectively on the indoor and outdoor artworks.
Studio del Presente: Intermezzo The interlude: humans and nature are leaving their marks simultaneously on the same land art installation: a rammed earth stairway. The audience is invited but not forced, to take part in the interaction.
Studio del Presente: Atto Secondo With the second act the audience is forced to interact with the artwork through a dinner/performance. In the present, our existence is finite and we are part of its process and decay. A functional installation made of rammed earth adobe bricks creates the frame for community gatherings where people will directly interact with the artwork. During the following years, nature will as well take part, leaving its imprints, bringing slowly to the end of the art piece. Human and nature are leaving their marks simultaneously.
Studio del Presente: Atto Terzo With the third and last act of STUDIO DEL PRESENTE the audience is as well the creator of the artwork. Forced to not only interact but as well build the artwork through a workshop and performance. Human and nature are creating, building and leaving their marks simultaneously until the end.
