DEL VELLO DI PECORA E ALTRI RUMINANTI
Performance - Tableau Vivant, Cittadellarte Fondazione Pistoletto Biella, IT 2017
Nico Angiuli’s performance (about the fleece of sheep and other ruminants), which involved Michelangelo Pistoletto, deconstructed the process of wool production showing the different geographical and historical worlds linked to the animal fibre in a sort of lyrical-poverist supply chain. “With this performance” explained Angiuli, “we meant to highlight not only the processes of production and transformation of wool from animal’s to people’s skin, but also tensions and contemporary memories wool contains in itself”.
