XXIII Triennale Milano

“EL” Romeo Castellucci

A mechanical installation that invades the stage of the theater at Triennale completely occupying the visual space bounded by the stage arch. This is the second unprecedented intervention that Castellucci was invited to create for the International Exhibition, confronting the theme of the unknown and questioning “what we don’t know we don’t know.”

“EL” is a device that through repeated and tireless motion produces a continuous alternation of light and darkness, noise and silence, presence and absence. An atmospheric dimension whose essential elements reveal themselves to the audience as generators of emblems, images and sensations that cannot be preordained.
The mechanical element of the installation is joined and complemented by a second signifier: music. A equal relationship, which transforms into a figure in its own right the oper aural of Scott Gibbons , confirms ndoing once again the decades-long collaboration of the American sound artist and composer with the Cesena-based artist.
