ANIMATED LANDSCAPES is a performative perform produced of ephemeral geometries painted in the landscape.
The landscape is crossed by theoretical, ephemeral steps. Environmental steps underline bodily options and geometries, born from the conference of human architectures and all those of the territory. This thought begins from my practice: to immortalise a exact time frame, the pictorial materialization of the time spent to create the function of art by itself. A analysis that improves the gradual component, the experience of painting in its getting, in relation with the bodily area that hosts it.
An unspecified range of steps is developed following the exploration of the landscapes and the architectures that surround metropolitan areas, amassing resources about which it is crafted aesthetically the thought of an exhibition intended to be the reflection of performative actions on the landscape. Researching the city fabric of a metropolis, wandering devoid of a place, observing and photographing marginal and abnormal facts, wanting for the serendipity impact, supposes the will of a deep transformation and a methodological and conceptual revision, recovered by some scholars of ﬂânerie as a approach of research in the area of visible sociology.
Territories, chosen from time to time, for their distinct anthropological and environmental attributes, are investigated and explained by way of the development of factors, kinds and geometrical compositions made with components linked with the territory and they are filmed in zenithal mode by a drone.
These animations are actual performances, designed specifically by me with the assist of local volunteers, and filmed all through the development.
The creation of these environmental choreographies exalts the performative facet of the venture and it exalts also the narration of the landscape.
The animation of symptoms is produced in true time by the members, that pursuing a preordained scheme, spread the material in the room, making ephemeral compositions that converse with those people designed by character.
The zenithal position of view make people vanish, it appears like symptoms are made independently in the landscape.
The will of gathering ephemeral land art and participation arrives from the intention of create social interactions amongst the artist and those who are living in the spots in which performances are carried out everyday, involving persons as the motor of the creation of signs in the territory. By the use of choreography, that coordinates the persons associated, indicators are developed on the terrain and the action of visible dialogue with the landscape starts.
it’s a living land art, that immediately results in being a pretext to activate social interactions, exhibiting a cross segment of modern-day urbanisation and its dialogue with undeveloped parts not only a reflection on the aesthetical articles ot the operate of art, but a radical shift of consideration from the “final product” to the imaginative act.
With this improve of possible the permeation of painting, images, video and human conversation, would like to uncover new interpretations of the creative action innate in the house.
Therefore the physical base of the exhibition comes from coordinated steps and choreographies in the territory: beginning from the aerial shooting of the areas we make a video and photographic archive to use for the generation of monotypes and photographs of big format retouched manually with pictorial interventions and indications.
Getting the cue from artists this kind of as Francis Alys for his experiential strategy, Norman Mc Claren for his pioneering use of animation and abstract frame by frame, Eadweard Muybridge as the inventor and experimenter of the body as a temporal device and Robin Rhode as his up to date disciple, focalised on the use of sequence as narrative instrument, the undertaking is put in a line of study that commences from the half of the nineteenth century up to currently.
The main character will constantly be the territory and the inspiration it generates.
The crossing is the to start with act of study.
“The thought of course of action inside of 2501’s visible language does not instantly dilemma the gesture, the picked out room, or the surfaces involved. As an alternative, it is the illustration of that incredibly same time and house, formulated and occupied. The juxtaposition, the comparison, and, in component, the definition by itself of the time the act of portray necessitates are necessary to the artist. It is not a coincidence that Nomadic Experiment is characterised by a documentary component and by an authorial one, an intangible archive for all intent and needs, a virtual spot to establish video clip testaments functional to the reconstruction of the project realisation in its entirety. Piecing all the fragments again jointly, what is right away apparent is that they perform as a synecdoche, that is a component representing the complete, a single ‘appearance’ of kind able of restoring the complete feeling of the artist’s will.” from LEARNING FROM 2501 by Fabiola Naldi
