Pretty happy about the experience i had together with Annamaria Ajmone at Palazzo Durini.
The BONOTTOEDITIONS hq in Milano is an oldy/richy/labyrinthy/jungly/outoftime building and it’s a fantastic location for our performance.
Thanks a lot to Danae Festival, everyone who showed up and of course the Fondazione Bonotto.
Here below a small text wrote with Anna – italiano kimbo kaput.
Slide in B è una durational performance che indaga le possibilità di abitare spazi specifici con l’intento di trasformarli in un luoghi intimi, ma non privati. E’ il terzo capitolo del progetto Pratiche di abitazione temporanea di Annamaria Ajmone le cui due precedenti tappe sono state: Solo presso il Cinema della Fondazione Prada a Milano e De La presso la Night Gallery a Los Angeles. Gli appuntamenti con Pratiche di abitazione temporanea lavorano sempre su tempo e spazi.
Slide in B è immaginato e realizzato insieme all’artista Caned icoda e avrà luogo presso il prestigioso Palazzo Durini, nella sede di BONOTTOEDITIONS. Si tratta di una commistione di molteplici elementi. Il primo è l’ambiente stesso, le particolarità di un’interno, con le sue pareti, i suoi volumi, i suoi accessi e deflussi, i decori ed il suo accoglierci come visitatori. Il secondo punto è la volontà di Annamaria Ajmone. Volontà necessaria per vivere e trasformare determinati e delimitati spazi attraverso la ricerca e l’esperienza con il movimento; senza una struttura prefissata o una drammaturgia lineare, ma piuttosto cercando di assemblare un sistema che lentamente si costruisca, guardi all’esterno e si alimenti. In terzo luogo il contributo di Caned Icoda, che partendo dall’idea di collaborazione tra spazio e suono, sviluppa un abito e un suono per l’ambiente ed un abito e un suono per la danza. L’impianto audio nella sua interezza diventa un elemento decorativo, presente e in buona parte determinante, con il suo narrare e diffondere suono, contribuisce alla dinamica della performance. Le possibilità del suono, in questo caso sorgono ripescando e rielaborando in tempo reale elementi della collezione Fluxus e di Poesia Concreta, Visiva e Sonora della Fondazione Bonotto, vastissima e complessa libreria di input multidispiplinari. Quarto fondamentale elemento è lo spettatore, libero di sostare, attraversare, andare e tornare, scegliendo il proprio spazio e il proprio tempo di permanenza.
L’azione avviene nell’attimo e si sviluppa gradualmente accumulando informazioni e cancellandone altre, tracciando un flusso aperto e mutevole in cui il pubblico può leggere ed interpretare ed al tempo stesso viene letto ed interpretato dagli artisti. Slide in B può essere considerato quindi come un esercizio di adattamento e resistenza in un soggiorno temporaneo, una fusione di quattro elementi essenziali: lo spazio, il movimento, il suono e l’essere.

there are tons of stuffs i did last summer and had no time at all to write about..
Adagio con Buccia @ the magico Far Festival in Swiss – i’ll do that asap
In the meanwhile say hello to Bellagio Bellagio and Vasco and Albert and Valentina Pascarella.
Yesterday at Cinema Oberdan: Tectonic Plate – a stunnin movie from Mika Taanila, with a so delicate but sharp soundtrack from Mika Vainio – i’m so well impressed: to create such a dreamy narration with abstract images, rythm and text. What a pretty strong result, I loved it!
Thanks to Lorenza Pignatti and I Boreali for bring Mikka at Milano Film Festival.
Last july i was at Bonotto’s with my friend Annamaria Ajmone.
We visited the fondation and the factory too as long as we’ll soon be working on a collaboration that will be presented during the next Danae Festival here in Milano.
I’ll develop the music for this Annamaria’s piece.
It’s always special to visit the fondation.. this time Patrizio Peterlini showed us some old Yoko Ono’s drawings – that i loved a lot -, original arrangements from John Cage and tons of other impressive Fluxus pieces and editions.
I even did another selection of fantastic fabrics for the 3rd serie of appointments for the Adagio con buccia – that took place in Nyon – last august – at Far Festival.
A warm goodluck and see you there to the elastico Arrigo Lora Totino.
Few photos from the short visit i had in Gagliano del Capo – last july.
I was there for a 6 hours sleeping concert – from midnight till 6 in the morning, on the roof of the last sud east train station of Italy – Santa Maria di Leuca / Gagliano del Capo.
It was full summer – so nicely sunny and beautiful weather.
I ve aready been down there many times – but on those days i was so much more impressed by how much beauty you can find there around..
Lastation is promoting art and organizing events to share culture and i was their guest.
The landscape, the food, the air, the sea all around is super inspiring.
I would be pretty curious to be there in autumn or winter time, with different clima and less tourism.
well, journey well suggested!
I also visited Francesco from Capo d’Arte at his beautiful house just before the opening of this exhibition – - Wish you luck for the future projects!
In love with lichens.
As Piattaforma Fantastica we love house shows.
In general the situation is always relaxed.
Music and relations are the core and the meaning of why people show up.
Piattaforma Fantastica is to promote a certain kind of music culture.
Many times money makes things boring.
Thanks to Inga who let us organize a small Lettera 22 show in her basement.
I hate food photos. I even dont trust at all the bio wave and this particular new attention to quality food in general.. I would simply say: stay natural, dont trust trend.
Anyway when i visit Morena and her crew at Clandestino in Faenza i always have the lucky to taste pretty delicious dishes, vines and selected ingredients. This end of august I spent 4 days at her restaurant for Argillà – an european biennal of ceramics. I was guess at the restaurant with one of my classic temporary store – fresh clothes in small editions.
The result and suggestion that i ll keep on giving to all of you is always the same:
go to visit Morena and enjoy life
Komeini is the sharp cat in the photo and there was also Andrea from Ca di Viazadur – who is producing honey and tons of freshy vegs. We had fun selling figs, pears and peaches around Faenza with a small cart..
ciao ciao Faenza, see you sooner as p
