OASI NEL DESERTO
Performance, 2010

Concept


A project of video-performative raids around the city, inspired by the philosophy of urban writing, with the substantial difference that in this case, the scratch that marks the territory is temporary and ephemeral, although is experienced with the same excitement of an illegal raid. What remains is a video documentation of what happened, often in the absolute solitude and gloomy silence that characterizes most desolate areas of our cities.

The first raid was performed late at night, in Tor Bella Monaca, a very depressed neighborhood in Rome, Italy. In all that desolation and dirt, I'm a crazy lady trying to reach my little spot of peace. And even if I'm finally resting under the orange lights of an artificial sun, I'm still all alone, in the dark.
