Simona Pavoni 2022On 17 August 2022 by Deej_Fabyc1
with Kiro Gad & Vittorio Messina
We believe that art is an evocation of a fragment of life. The reality of life is indeed complex and can be faithfully conveyed by the coexistence of various means of expression. Over the past year, we have shared our individual researches, which have seemed complementary to each other and have allowed us to grow our views on life and art.
Kiro, as an artist and beatboxer, reflects on the importance of the voice and the subtraction of the person in a performance, leaving more space for the sound dimension than the visual one. He works on the gaze, understanding it as a tool to reach the most unexplored and invisible areas of being, avoiding the prejudice linked to the visual dimension. He intends the gaze as a blade, in his practice the gaze is a tool to move internal chaos. He studies what rhythm is in relation to time, voice and its vibrations.
Vittorio as an artist, dancer and musician is developing his own daily practice based on repetition and listening. Repetition is always different, it is a way to go deep into sensations and movements, it is a concrete tool to analyse something immaterial and to untie our inner knots. Music and dance are means that allow us to build a continuity between us and everything else. He wants to achieve the feeling of being part of a unique nature, to conquer the continuity between inside and outside.
Simona is a visual artist. She is interested in architecture as a manifestation of life. Any architecture is alive if it works as a flexible and permeable boundary that allows the relationship between its interior and exterior. Lately, she has been making small wooden houses working on their atmosphere and context. These places are places of observation to study the invisible and silent relationships between man, objects, architecture and the surrounding environment that appear to her in their magical and immaterial nature.
During the residence period in Live Art Ireland the three artists will work together on the same project, continuing to explore the direction of their respective research
