THE ABRAMOVIC METHOD || pietro menditto
“I have arrived at the conclusion that… the performance has no meaning without the public because, as Duchamp said, it is the public that completes the work of art. In the case of performance, I would say that public and performer are not only complementary but almost inseparable.” Marina Abramovic Performed in Milan at PAC curated by Eugenio Viola, Diego Sileo filmed and edited by Pietro Menditto

edificio copan sao paulo || pietro menditto Non è l’angolo retto che mi attrae, e nemmeno la linea retta, dura, inflessibile, creata dall’uomo.Ciò che mi attrae è la curva libera e sensuale. La curva che incontro nelle montagne e nei fiumi del mio paese, nelle nuvole del cielo, nelle onde del mare, nel corpo della donna preferita. Di curve è fatto tutto l’universo. Oscar Niemeyer.
It is not the right angle that attracts me. nor the straight line, tough, inflexible, created by man. what attracts me is the free, sensual curve. the curve I find in the mountains of my country, in the sinuous course of its rivers, in the waves of the sea, in the clouds of the sky, in the body of the favourite woman. Of curves is made all the universe.
