FLUXO comes to KORA – Contemporary Art Center

After a successful presentation in the spaces of Pirelli HangarBicocca, Milan,  Fluo (Fluxo) , the complex immersive, cross-disciplinary project, that won the Italian Council award (9th Edition, 2020) will be presented in different forms: screening, performance, live set, exhibitions. It will be presented in several International organization around the world such as Ming Museum – Shanghai -, Gaswork ( London) Kora – Contemporary Arts Center -Castrignano de’ Greci (Lecce) – Museo delle Civiltà (Roma), in collaboration with MAO (Torino).

On 26 June at KORA we  will present a video of a working progress editing of the final film, which will enter in the permanent collection of MAN in NUORO (October 2023). After the screening to follow a talk with Davide Quadrio ( Director MAO, Turin, founder and director Arthubasia, Shangai).

The project is an inquiry on the most common and basic element in the world: water, which innervates life. Already the subject of fierce although inconspicuous wars, in the form of sea water is epitome of epochal phenomena such as trans-national contact and migration.

The project is an open-end and work-shop based series of interactions and activations that bring sound/no sound, movement/no movement together.

The authors and performers have worked in a continuing space-time during the residence first and then during the final performance finding a new, contemporary lexicon of the fluidity as Fluxus’ artists did in Japan.

The enacting of some of historical performances, and other elements created in the contemporary tense by the serendipity of the encounters by the actors of this project, were filmed at HangarBicocca (Milan) and they represent the pivotal moment of Fluxo.

The staged performance in Pirelli HangarBicocca put together all the different elements (Mare Nostrum, re-enactments of the performances, installations and actions by the invited artists) in an open stage performance that offered to the audience a ground breaking experience: the progression of the series of activations immerged into the soundscape of Mare Nostrum created a circular time loop where audience could not see everything consequentially but instead had to let the control down and followed an emotional flow.

Audience and the show are so united in a complex exercise of attention and emotional overwhelming standoff, solved into a ever-changing spectacle, a personal journey through the trouble waters of Mare Nostrum and the magical poetry of water in pre-fluxus Japan.

Fluxo” is a project by Alessandro Sciarroni in collaboration with Andrea Anastasio and with Chiara Bersani, Rossella Biscotti and Attila Faravelli, Silvia Calderoni and Ilenia Caleo, Anna Raimondo and Silvia Gribaudi, curated by Davide Quadrio and based on an idea by Luciana Galliano, produced by Arthub (Shanghai, Cina).
