Opera Theatre

Curated by Sergio Risaliti, Teatro Studio, Scandicci
May 2011

At the theatre studio in Scandicci Robert Pettena used photography, video, sound, installations and more, to create a site specific installation.

An artist with pulsating curiosity, always in search of contradictions, on this occasion he used shreds of a burnt out caravan hung from a trellis, to create an explosive scene.

Fulvio Cauteruccio and the rap musician Millelemmi read texts chosen by Pettena, accompanied by rhythmic drumming. There was a backdrop of the artist’s photographic images and videos, revealing an unknown part of his biography.

The evening ended with a DJ who invited the public to enjoy the space while he created a sequence of sounds and disorders.
