Lavanda: A Useless Growth Prefixed To The Play
Italian Cultural Institute, London
Lavanda: A Useless Growth Prefixed To The Play is the first iteration of an ongoing research collaboration between movement artist Margherita Elliot, curator Angelica Bollettinari and sound designer Edoardo Robert Elliot.
The work presented at the Italian Cultural Institute brings together different voices from the field of dance, art and second-wave feminism in a sound and visual installation accompanied by live performance, which reinterprets the work of a little known and enigmatic artist who was active in Italy in the 70's under the pseudonym L.
Exploring notes on her artistic practice, a series of written choreographic scores and memories of her involvement with feminist collectives, the piece reflects on storytelling and explores the meaning and possibilities of autobiographical narration.
