This project, presented at the Italian Pavilion of the Biennale di Venezia in 2013, incorporates some elements of my previous artworks, especially the use of the voice and sound as a main element. In particular,water, metal and voice are the three elements that make up the work.
A performer is invited to use the voice through vocalizations, every day of the exhibition. The constant daily action of the performer interacts with the falling drop of water on the metal surface installed, which is a wall. In this way, the installation will turn imperceptibly, day after day.
Action after action, drop by drop, the water corrosion will take precedence over the metallic material, leaving the possibility to open a gap, which becomes a symbol of a real window into the reality that lies beyond the wall.
The position of the performer is opposed to the front of the metal wall: the performer and the wall are in dialogue. During the six months not only the metal will be consumed, but also the voice of the performers will be sorely tested by this daily ritual. Movement of the drop and vocal presence are constant actions, which move parallel to a single goal, maintaining an indestructible constancy.
Unlike my previous performances, in which the action is exhausted in a short space-time dimension, this gesture is greatly dilated. Each visitor will be faced with a work in constant mutation, day after day until the end of the exhibition.
