Furla Series #01

Marcello Maloberti. È il corpo che decide

Fifteen artists are invited to interact with the Museo del Novecento's collection and develop individual actions that forge a dialogue with the artworks on view

Over the two days of the workshop È il corpo che decide with Marcello Maloberti, fifteen artists  will be invited to interact with the museum collection, and develop individual actions that forge a direct dialogue with the art on view – more specifically, works by the Futurists, Morandi, De Chirico, Martini, Fontana, and Pellizza da Volpedo.
 

The rehearsals, which are themselves a form of performance and an integral part of the workshop, will be held in public, in the Sala Fontana. The outcome will be presented to museum visitors at the conclusion of the workshop, on Thursday, March 29, in a series of performance stations scattered throughout the exhibition area. Through an interaction with the past that places delicate, ephemeral actions alongside pillars of art history, the participants illustrate a new way of experiencing and activating the museum space, turning engagement with the viewer into an integral part of the performance process.
 

 

Participating artists: Andrea Bocca, Elisabetta Bottura, Martina Brembati, Sara Ciuffetta, Gaia De Megni, Nguyen Hoang Giang, Francesco Michele Laterza, Ahmed Malis, Jacopo Martinotti, Andrea Noviello, Valentina Parati, Matteo Pizzolante, GianMarco Porru, Fabio Ranzolin, Eleonora Reffo and Noemi Rossi.
 

Marcello Maloberti (born in 1966 in Codogno, Lodi. He lives and works in Milan).
Maloberti’s research draws inspiration from minimal, marginal aspects of urban life. His investigations move below the familiar surface of things, merging realism with fantasy and constantly transforming even the most ordinary facets of existence. His performances and sound and light installations, which are presented in both public and private spaces, show a strong theatrical influence and incorporate viewer interaction.
