paraphernalia…

Guardare se stessi guardarsi (Watching yourself watching yourself) by Masbedo

Went to an art show at an old factory space on the road to Oropa, it’s only about a 3 km walk there from Cittadellarte, but up a very steep slope. Takes about 40 minutes to get there. I go with most of the UNIDEE residents and i think we surprise a lot of drivers who are not so used to seeing a dozen or so pedestrians making their way up this winding road with no pavement…but we all survive in tact. Anyway, it’s worth it for the space alone…all crumbling walls and pillars…perfect for video projections though in the end the art often takes second place to such imposing architecture…

The show is called Paraphernalia and is produced by IDEA (which in italian stands for “Industry Dedicated Essentially to Art) which was founded in 2009 by Luisella Zignone and Ferdinando Botto Poala

Actually i really liked the drony discordant musical part of the performance, the musicians are from experimental Italian band Marlene Kuntz i filmed a little bit (badly)…see below:
