Performance

Mercato Ittico – Napoli

The performance consists of a group of sculptures taken from casts of real people and  from their fragments, a vast group of girls with black make-up: the living bodies, the bodies cast from real ones and the fragments form a complex whole, a monochromatic sculptural group assembled on the market’s tables. The fragments remember the carbonised bodies of Pompeii and the sculptural remains of the past. The living girls, with their white eyes set against the black make-up, recall the ivory of traditional bronze sculptures.
