The next episode of the OGR YOU
series will involve Ambra Pittoni and Paul-Flavien Enriquez-Sarano
, a couple of artists collaborating since 2009, based in Turin and Paris.
Do you know how to replicate the gestures of your favourite rock guitarist because you are an Air
Guitar champion, but you still don’t know how to practice Air Talking?
To discover it, please join us at OGR on 17 April, Duomo, 6 pm, when Ambra and Paul-Flavien will illustrate the principles of this new discipline of contemporary art, with a special lecture-performance.
This is how the artists introduce it:
“Here we are, or almost. There is no more difference between work and life, between the private and the public, between production and its rest, between the intimate and the mundane. Our presence is perpetual and ineluctable. What does it mean to oppose, when the very act of opposing takes part in the staging of our performativity? Is it possible to strike from one's own existence? Which body will we need? Welcome to the Air Talking”.
All the OGR YOU
talks, curated by Barbara Casavecchia in collaboration with Sergey Kantsedal, are free and open to the public, upon reservation.Ambra Pittoni
and Paul-Flavien Enriquez-Sarano
