Untitled 05 (notes on Stressed Environment), 2015, digital drawing, 2480×3508 px
In Marselleria’s new space, Davide Savorani creates “Stressed Environment”, turning it into a place full of stimuli coming from his research on the possibility of transforming boredom into an active, dynamic and continually mutating state.
With “Stressed Environment” Savorani presents an unprecedented installation and performative elements which disdain stability, the static, two-dimensionality, and instead favour movement, prompting action both for the audience and for the choreographies which take place during the exhibition.
In the exhibition space the artist has put together a science-fiction choreography of PVC masks and telescopic poles, usually used to support satellite dishes, which here instead are a suggestion of a series of physical exercises. The light boxes illuminate Savorani’s drawings and images and punctuate the course of a show that defies trite readings and established definitions. The banana peels symbolize the past, but there is a future being built here.
