Stage photography is a pioneer species, going from a soil to another, obeying to other laws, claiming other rights. Stage photography as performative act + collective path planning + field recording. Gestures producing photos are influenced by the space composition: live music, other bodies, field sounds, voices and speeches, performed lights, architectures, objects, trees, plants, soils. This is a photo book relating Oreste will be backcreation residency at Kulturfactory contemporary international residency, December 2020. Based on a pretty uncommon procedure in photographs: we have been freed from the need to be ourselves and our pictures (Giovanni Ambrosio, Imma Di Lillo) are no more our pictures. You can shift from a cinematic approach to more iconic views: that’s probably the only documentary value of our pictures vis-à-vis OWB.  Giovanni Ambrosio

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
