Stopping the World

"Stopping the World" is a collection of seven pictures. The title comes from the concept of the same name by Castañeda, out of its context. The pictures want to show up in the audience a question about the perception of our "political identity". The "political identity" is the compass of our political way to do in society. We could suppose that the flow of information that we permanently receive preserve it. What happens if the flow of information suddenly stopped?

I'm in Novi Sad, along the banks of the Donau. I see a man on a boat. The man throws a fishing net. In front of me, a bridge. I go through it... The picture is the cover of a work of video art called "Žeželj". Filmed in Novi Sad, Serbia. It is around a question that sound: the urban space could be, literally, a bridge between our living experience and the collective experience?

Strike

“Strike” is a piece about war and games. It is sound art based, with an action created by the engagement of local children. A child stays in a room and plays with a toy drone and some sounds playing. The sounds come from some registrations. There are sounds like a buzz by male bees (“drones”, in English), some interviews about the impact of drones in war zones, and some sounds of explosions. The purpose is to create an impactful experience about the relationship between playing and war. The sounds are mixed and modified in real time by the artist.

Body’s Law

“Body’s Law” is an action about a state of transition of the body. It explores a social state of transition from the state of detention in a jail to the state of being part of a society. In this action, I explore a social state of transition. It is the state of passage from two other states. The starting point is the social state of detention of a body in a jail. The ending point is the social state of a body being part of a civil community, a society.

Suspended Sentence

© VFMarrese, a card designed and with a picture by VMarrese

“Suspended Sentence” is a piece about colonialism, pollution and exotic plants. It happens, generally, in botanical gardens. Some sounds that I recorded during my trip to Bangladesh create the core of the piece. I developed this piece for botanical gardens and similar spaces.

The idea is to add a temporary plant to the collection of the garden. It is an unusual plant, not a real one. In Italian, my first language, the word "plant" has two meanings. The first meaning is "plant" as an organism. The second meaning is "map", typically "a map of a city". The unusual plant is "a sound map of a city".

Put it down

© VFMarrese, still by video teaser

“Put it Down” explores with an artistic purpose the idea to use the technology to find new ways to rules the bodies movements. The experience to be arrested by taser weapon is the focus of the performance. It is a weapon that the police start to use now in our country, Italy. It is a weapon that involved a strange reaction in the body. I’m a very interested in it for what that implied in a biological and political sense.
