pathosformel (IT)

This site-specific installation devised by pathosformel for this year’s programme of Uovo takes as its starting point the observation of fortuitous relations to suggest their reconstruction as connections based on the idea of double.

In 1988 Felix Gonzales Torres created Untitled (perfect lovers) by juxtaposing two clocks synchronised to the second. He aimed to portray in a mechanic way an affinity which would be otherwise indescribable.

This site-specific installation devised by pathosformel for this year’s programme of Uovo takes as its starting point the observation of fortuitous relations to suggest their reconstruction as connections based on the idea of double. It entails the laboratory reconstruction of the possibilities of a two-way dialogue and its desperate and impossible systematisation; or maybe it offers the opportunity to look at ourselves from the outside and to find us to be subject to known rules.

by Daniel Blanga Gubbay and Paola Villani

pathosformel Carta bianca

Uovo asked pathosformel to curate an independent project within the festival. Within Carta bianca, pathosformel will present their latest piece Alcune primavere cadono d’inverno, realized in collaboration with port-royal; Don’t be afraid of the clocks, original installation conceived ad hoc and, for the first time in Italy, FREEZE! a performance by Nick Steur, “guest” artist invited by the company to participate in the project.
