The Weight of the Soul – Everything is temporary

The Weight of the Soul – Everything is temporary

– Chiara Marchese WoW Compagnie

A move from a delicately burlesque range to an ancient depth of expression.

Acknowledging instability becomes a starting point, a deliberate radicality. The artist has decided to expose themselves completely, as a scream to the world and its fiction of our daily lives. Nakedness is paired with spontaneity. An aesthetic generosity serving an expressive fulfilment. A circus performance about tremor and small frailties/Lines/Public speaking/Trust/Signs/Threads/This tiny hair connecting our urges with rationality. The artists inspiring this work are Maria Lai, Christian Boltanski, sculptor David Oliveira as well as Michelangelo Pistoletto and his Third Paradise.
