AGENTE-AGISCE-AGITO

Primo Piano d’Artista, curated by Alessandra Galasso

Museo del Novecento, Milano

AGENTE-AGISCE-AGITO. Pensieri in movimento, prende spunto da alcune riflessioni dell'antropologo francese Marcel Jousse (1886-1961) che analizzando il ruolo del gesto e del ritmo nel processo della conoscenza, della memoria e dell’espressione umana, elaborò un nuovo campo di ricerca denominato “antropologia del gesto”.
 

Lo spazio viene trasformato in un luogo di riflessione, di sosta e di socializzazione, in cui i diversi elementi costituiscono appunti per lo sviluppo di future possibili opere: disegni, annotazioni, video proiezioni e un ciclo di incontri con professionisti provenienti da diverse discipline: sport, filosofia, medicina e neuroscienze; ciascun relatore propone le proprie riflessioni sul tema del linguaggio dei gesti partendo dal proprio ambito di ricerca Tutti gli interventi vengono filmati e  i video si aggiungono all’installazione della mostra realizzando l’opera video Coro.
 

Numerose sedie e poltrone provenienti dallo studio dell’artista sono a disposizione del pubblico per leggere, chiacchierare, ascoltare le conferenze oppure guardare i video, trasmessi su monitor distribuiti nello spazio, che proiettano immagini di mani e braccia di intellettuali colte in movimento durante conversazioni, lezioni e dibattiti pubblici. I visitatori potranno altresì sfogliare ed eventualmente fare delle fotocopie di libri che provengono dalla biblioteca personale dell’artista. “Le posture – i corpi, i gesti, i movimenti – sono forme parallele e trasversali per intendere ed esprimere il senso e il significato del mondo”.

AGENT-ACT-ACTED. Thoughts in movement, inspired by reflections of the French anthropologist Marcel Jousse (1886-1961) who analyzed the role of gesture and rhythm in the process of cognition, of memory and of human expression, and developed a new field of research called "anthropology of gesture." 
 

The space was transformed into a place of reflection, rest and socialization, in which different elements including drawings, annotations, paintings, second hand chairs, video projections and a series of meetings with professionals from various disciplines, such as sport, philosophy, medicine and neuroscience, all became part of a new work. Each speaker was filmed offering his thoughts on the topic of body language and the images and the audio cacophony were added to the other projections in the exhibition.
 

Numerous randomly placed armchairs and chairs coming from the artist‘s studio were made available to the public to use while they read, talked, listened to lectures and watched videos, broadcast on monitors that showed images of hands and arms in movement of intellectuals engaged in conversations, lectures and public debates. Visitors could also browse and possibly make photocopies of books that came from the artist's personal library. "Postures - bodies, gestures, movements - are parallel and transverse forms which express the sense and meaning of the world."

AGENTE-AGISCE-AGITO, Pensieri in movimento, is inspired by some thoughts of  the french anthropologist Marcel Jousse (1886-1961), who analyzed the role of gesture and rhythm in the process of knowledge, of memory and of human expression, developing a new field called "Anthropology of the gesture".
