“Being-in-this-world has always dispersed or even split itself up into definitive ways of Being-in. The multiplicity of these is indicated by the following examples: having to do with something, producing something, attending to do something and looking after it, making use of something, giving something up and letting go, undertaking, accomplishing, evincing, interrogating, considering, discussing, determining… All these kind ways of Being-in have concern as their kind of Being”

M.Heidegger, Sein und Zeit, 1929

Being-in-this-world is to live the world. As a simple fact, we exist, we live in space where we are present. The body is our home and our being creates our existence.

We live our home, we take care of it, we develop relationships within our space defining our whole existence. At the same time we can live also places which are not specifically described as home. These places can become the perfect example of “feeling at home”. They become a clear manifestation of spaces that belong to us and are still “ours”.

During the performance we would like to explore the duplicity of living yourself and the world: we live places that are our by necessity or relationships. We investigate the state of living inside and outside.

We live because we are, we relate to ourselves within space and time and we live any places considered “ours”. We inhabit ourselves and we relate to the places life put on our path. We inhabit temporarily physical places coming to life thanks to our actions and our presence.
Duality lies within each one of us, it shapes the action of two individuals connected and separated at the same time. Each one of us will find its path in the world. The confrontation with the “Other” and the role exchange will situate inversely two parts of the Self.

The balance among our bodies becomes a tool of power and knowledge.

It is the perfect deal among individuals who are similar and different at the same time, observing each other from the inside to eradicate the discrepancy that separates them. Forming one body we become a new figure, we become an individual who is different from the single human being. The cohesion is unearth, the cohesion is a gaze toward the inner part of someone different, who seemed at first extraneous in our eyes.

The dividing line between us is made precarious by our stability. In frontal, and unbalanced position in comparison to the single centers, we unite ourselves through the support of the third eye on our forehead. We become one body, our togetherness make possible a new balance.

The formed body is unique, single and double at the same time. The hands sideways support a precarious structure acting as parameter for our stability. The necessary resistance, to maintain this form, works as mechanism destroying the limit that separates us. The fusion happens through the gaze, creating a sutle game among the eyes, so close to each other and capable to see beyond our perception.

“Confession of a digital Mind: A Live-Stream-Performance”

2017

A live-stream-performance by Marta Lodola & Gal Meyerson

link for the video

Who are we, when we subject ourself to a digital matrix of rules and restrictions?
What remains of us once we are forced to eliminate our deviations, absurdities, and obscenities, to censor all the uneven corners of our being? We reveal, verbalize, and display. Taking a new standardized identity, we confess strictly along the guidelines.

In the last 10 years a new public sphere has emerged, and it’s a privately owned one. Those who wish to participate, must follow and respect its restrictions. Most of us accept this sacrifice so gracefully, so willingly; as if it’s the natural price we must pay for obtaining connectedness in an evermore immaterial reality.
Under the promise “to build a more open and connected world” lies the death of individuality and the creation of a single absolute truth.

We invite you for a shared reflection on the issues of power, identity, confession, and truth in the age of the digital social network.
Our performance will take place inside the environment we wish to examine, and will be subjected to the same restrictions and guidelines we wish to challenge.

Gender-based violence is something inherent in our social sphere. The government provisions seem not able to embank the problem and offer an effective aid.
Since the beginning of the year 80 women died in Italy because of feminicide. A woman dies every two days and, many women suffer constantly from violence without knowing how to ask for help, or to whom.
There  are  no effective punishments for the aggressors and the murderes remaining un-imprisoned even after the reports, being a constant threat for every woman asking for help.
The laws don’t guarantee a real protection, and in situations of home violence there are often dynamic for which is difficult to find a way out from this condition. The report would be only another way to jeopardize your own life.
I remember their lives, their light and their vitality, interrupted by murderous hands. My body is a simple medium, annulled by their presence.

The female body is connected to its standard representation of mere tool proving its own presence and its own identity. The female body has always been persecuted and identified as sexual body connected to aesthetic pleasure. Historically the female role has been subjected to the highest violence discriminations precisely because it is the body of sin, evil and perdition. The broken and shadowed body.
How can the enslaved body identify its own identity and value? What is the process in which we judge the body? In which way our judgement is responsible for the woman condition through history?
The judged female body becomes the starting point to recreate an interaction within reality, although the body as symbol of rejection and power over the individual is actually the opposite. It creates a bridge between the worlds and establish mutual trust among identities communicating through this body.

It is time to read, understand, and take a stand.
Let’s focus on the sense of the words and compare it with the reality.
A careful reading of Italian Constitution articles, especially in this historical and political moment, reveals a complete incongruity observing what is actually happening. The events of the Italian chronicles are the perfect example as this text, that should be the clear model of Italian citizens rights and duties, is in reality a realized paradox.
On paper individual freedom is inviolable. Citizens rights are equal in front of the law, and there are no distinctions of sex, race, religion and political views. We know that these distinctions and inequalities are real and they become visible more and more. I see my country in extreme danger, a marvelous place, crib of the art strongly defaced by the affairs and by the political business. I look at my beloved earth and I am sad.
In my left hand I will hold a candle and using my right hand I will take, one after another, the articles printed on every single sheet. Every article gets burnt before its reading so the fire sets the time and dangerously challenge to read more and more.
Reading every article implicates two factors: the risk to suffer a physical damage and at the same time the risk of a limited comprehension of the words during theirs reading.
Risking to be misunderstood or risking to suffer a physical pain due to knowledge, is a compromise that leads to take a stand.
It is an invitation to Reaction.
Time to read is now!

The feminine body has always been the biggest proponent and inspiration for beauty and sin, finding itself in the middle of the paradox generated by our intrinsic imperfection: the general parameters of the ideal body – imposed model of what sexual attractive should be – doesn’t correspond of what actually is in nature. A woman naked body is animalistic, sensual, powerful and it comes in all shapes and sizes.

In her performance Marta Lodola progressively wraps her own body with red wool and daily use objects, transforming it from its original identity and loading it with energetic power and mystical meaning. The color symbol of the paradox: red – sensuality and danger.
In geo chromotherapy the red color is known for its gynecological and sexual functions, and more generally it is known for its energetic and initiating virtues, stimulation of blood circulation, in religious rituals and functions it keeps bad energies away and of course it is the color symbolizing eros and passion. The red wool is a material that has strong connection with magic and the feminine reproductive system. With this action the red wool becomes like a second skin, an elevating bridge to a whole new level of presence and conscience.

Fak c’est une action, pas seulement une performance.
Intention, volonté, plutôt qu’un spectacle.
Les armes de la culture ou bien la culture des armes ?
Aussi la liberté est un ordre, et l’espace son champ d’expérimentation et entrainement.
Le paysage n’est plus objet de contemplation, de pure fusion, voire d’extase. Non, il est objet des
discussions, des stratégies, d’actions.
C’est à partir de ces questionnements liberté, guerrilla, sécurité, contrôle, surveillance et pouvoir
qu’on à structuré un mouvement.
Le bâtiment B qui s’offre aux étudiants avec son architecture genre panopticon est devenu
l’extension de notre subjectivité, la centralité à travailler, à repousser pour se déplacer sous une autre
optique. Comment peut on se retrouver après? Qu’est ce que nous a changé ?
Notre défi, le temps pour pratiquer cette intersection, le cadre de la semaine des arts, et les limites
des objets trouvé sur place et la structure architectonique.
Seul le rapport entre le lieu, sa population et nos corps a pu garantir quelque chose, une
compatibilité divergente, entre l’hostilité d’une occupation et la médiation d’une ouverture, un
écrasement calculé, une résurrection volontaire et le risque à tout instant de s’inscrire dans
l’imposition du « je ».
Subvertir, Reformer, hypothèses pour toucher une immatérialité d’un goût plus lointaine de la joie,
verbes avec des modalités en regardant vers l’infinitif, on a tué la seule rationalité qui nous restait,
personne est absente, nouvelles formes de vie se constituent comme des plateformes.
Chantal Malambri

 

ITALIAN GIRLS MUST BE BEAUTIFUL

2011

Project_Marta Lodola

Performance_Marta Lodola

Camera_Valerio Ambiveri

In Italy women’s image has undergone a dramatic change over the past twenty years, which has partly been induced by television, media and sexual scandals involving political leaders. As a result, Italian women have soon been exposed to the risk of a generalisation that alienates them.
I talk about resistance as it entails an actual limitation of women’s involvement in this country. This also generates a number of problems regarding women’s social dimension and their ongoing struggle to achieve those unrealistic images so appealing to the contemporary taste.

 

MY BODY IS YOUR BODY

2011

Videoperformance_Marta Lodola

My body is your body, it’s everyone’s. Let ourselves become more than witnesses for once. Let’s put ourselves in the shoes of those people being targeted or in the shoes of that soldier that’s dropping bombs. What will you be? A victim or a murderer?
