I’m currently and proudly a resident at Frans Masereel Centrum in Belgium, working on the migration from digital matter to printed matter and from minimal gestural painting to digital files and again to paper. The Frans Masereel Centrum is a center for contemporary art, combining an artist-oriented exhibition and production schedule with an international residency programme for artists and curators, often with a specific focus on printed matter-at-large. I’m working to a new series,  Sumbit!,  which also includes texts already written for Sibyl Session performance.

WHO DOESN’T JUMP UP! Football. Culture. Identity curated by Matteo Balduzzi 12 June – 24 October 2021 Museo di Fotografia Contemporanea   The Museum of Contemporary Photography is presenting the group exhibition titled Who doesn’t jump up! Football, Culture. Identity, curated by Matteo Balduzzi, which is a reflection treating the game of football as an expression of both individual and group identity. This is an articulated exhibition project that gets underway with the start of the European Football Championship and which is open to the public in the rooms of the Museum in Cinisello Balsamo (Milan) from Saturday 12 June until Sunday 24 October 2021. The exhibition investigates the role of football in Italian culture with the presentation of images forming a panorama of the sport’s presence in society, the landscape, the memory and the culture of Italy. The protagonists of the exhibition are the works of more than thirty artists of different generations, disciplines and languages – videos, photographs and installations – presented in a dialogue with the collections of the Museum: some recent artistic productions, collections of images of an anthropological nature and participating projects. The artists selected are the following: Andrea Abati, Giampietro Agostini, Giovanni Ambrosio e…

Oreste will be back Oreste will be back: five chapters compose a performance/installation mixing video, art, music, dance, theatre. By Kulturscio’k live art collective. Since the beginning of my collaboration with Alessia Siniscalchi, I am almost never out of the stage space. In OWB I go in with a documentary based work, Ius Soli. Orestes’ creation by Alessia Siniscalchi includes a process of rewriting my work, in its materiality and in its meaning. Orestes also obeys the law of the earth (ius soli). In December 2020 I introduced two painted works from the Opus incertum series, the healing process: my journal painted directly on the wall. Printed on fabrics, those images act as a blanket / cloak / flag / liquid image. These works summarize, in their creation process and in their materials, other topics that emerge from Oreste’s research: salvation, care, change, creation. On the other hand, the documentary photography of the performance also becomes a performative act in the vibration of the creation that it is supposed to represent. It adds, once again, stratification and archeology to the matter of the scenic creation. Paris, Nuit Blanche, October 2nd 2021 Napoli, Museo della moda, June 2021

The Sibyl Sessions project (working title) is an on going work by Alessia Siniscalchi and her collective Kulturscio’k. The tragedy, the myth, the oracles, the prophets. A theater where the text is reduced, summarized, destroyed, to take advantage of the creations where image, sound, effects, art, radical technological inventions, exacerbated and extreme, become a pretext to tell the present, the past, the future. Or to glimpse what we don’t want to know about the human condition. Sibyl oracle prophet? In this work, started on the basis of a collective residency in a theatre in Paris during the first week of March 2021, I write prophecies, responses and pronouncement as Instagram Stories. Beyond the artists working with Kulturscio’k on a regular basis, I invited to join german artist Julia Liedel to interact with my writing. All pictures : © Roberto Di Mola.
