A site-specific WRITING
Sharing, contaminating stories, ideas, suggestions and poetic fragments, linked to specific public spaces of the quarters of Alto Fest, collaborating in the creation of a collective imaginary map of those spaces.

A car. 3 spectators. A driver. The city around. The music inside.
I was taught that percussions must be played only in the expected contexts. I believe that such a choice can only lead to a homogenization of the instrument, forgetting about history, culture, the suffering of those who built it, only to be socially accepted.

Black Spring Graphics is a pen name, a heteronym according to Fernando Pessoa. I am a concrete person, I am not a group, I am not a collective, buy I am not only one. A work is (almost) never a consequence of a lonely act, the external factors divert the personal trajectories. (Whether you like it or not)

A reflection on the ability of the body to write shapes and of the images to add new shapes contemporarily.

I humbly agree with the suggestion of Luis Bourgeois when he writes that the words of an artist have always to be considered cautiously.
Curiosity and pleasure in using materials leads me to study and search for several techniques, in order to find the ones which can reveal the mother idea of the projects.
Accettati is work in progress project ideated by Federica Terracina, and presented during ALATO FEST 2013. The work includes drawings and photos collection. This project is the result of a collaboration between different persons and also some artists who I met long my way, as the two photographers Davide Adamo e Laura Arlotti. It is an intimate trip. It is an unbelievable research on the world of monsters. It has born with the aim to question about the fear perception. The questions are simple and unusual: “Who are the monsters? Where do they live? Why do they grow up in yourself?” . An dreamlike research.

Feld in concerto
Piano, drums and voices concert. An attempt to explore freely different fields. Moving without limits among improvisation, classical music, traditional rhythms, basic and complex melodies, the group elaborates single elements of original and existent composition, shaped as studies, repetitions, small variations, prospective changes, with an organic overlapping between the practical and conceptual level.
Liquorice born in Berlin from the urgency of Futaba and Susanna. Futaba is a virtuous “guitalele” player who desired to play electric guitar; Susanna graduated in piano and keyboard player, who wanted to play drums. Their songs are written in German, English and French, and the lyrics welcome sheeps, cats, love and wait, pudding and vague screams.

Eva Geraci, Giovanna Cossu, Tommasina Bianca Squadrito. They inaugurated their collaboration in 2012, with the performance Stazione Maria Zambrano. After that experience we felt our open and informal praxis as listening to the sense of unity, that catastrophe that arises in our work revoking that many writings are unpronounceable.
Per tratti E G T
Through our lines we dissolve competitiveness and antagonism intersecting paths that may seem irrelevant and instead are the base of life experience. Walking, plaiting, repairing we will use leaves, flute sounds, voices, contacts. A further step in a calligraphy with no writing.
