GRAFÉ 1998

Performance - December 23, 1999, 18:00, 2nd Biennale d'arte contemporanea, Municipality of Gardone Val Trompia


"Grafé" is an "originary" word; its meaning pointed both to drawing and to writing. During the performance the movement that draws its letters, evoking the union of the sensible and the intelligible, resounds as a gesture that can activate the aesthetic experience while it creates itself. The informative way, which on the contrary sticks to the abstractness of the sign and privileges the quantitative side of giving news, becomes like "chatting", an impersonal way where the intelligible of meaning vanishes among the conformism of the dominant ideology.
