LAVICA Maddalena Ugolini
20 November to 15 December
NOTE - Galeria de Arquitetura
Wednesday to Saturday | 3pm to 8pm
There is nothing purely human in our body, we carry parents, grandparents, fish, bacteria, hydrogen and carbon atoms. We forgot where we came from in order to say I. Our name is a telluric force that allows the earth to keep living, blending, breathing. We are all pieces of the same stone.
LAVICA is the photographic trace of a philosophical and choreographic research part a cycle of itinerant artistic residencies called “Lugares_diaries of bodies and landscapes” born in 2017 with the idea of studying the relationship and coincidence between body and space, anatomy and geography. The choreographer investigates the authentic movement of the individual and collective body on an open stage for a horizontal dramaturgical action between humans, plants and minerals in a multispecies real time composition.
