Franco Ariaudo
The Revolution Will Not Be Televised

Atto1-3


The revolution will not be televised, il cui titolo è tratto da una nota canzone di Gill Scott-Heron, poeta e musicista statunitense, celebra l’impossibilità di esibire l’essenza dell’atto di ribellione, non solo in termini mediatici, ma anche di semplice condivisione pubblica. La fotografia, inoltre, svela quale sia la forma reale dei solidi lignei (sasso, uovo di vernice, sampietrino, molotov, mattone), mostrandola allo spettatore, tuttavia, soltanto nel momento successivo al lancio, e dunque in forma di resto o impronta. Il bersaglio, un anonimo muro della periferia torinese, esprime, proprio come la canzone di Scott-Heron, l’impossibilità di creare una narrazione. Serie delle 3 fasi del lancio. Prodotte per la mostra The Pitcher.

Franco Ariaudo born in 1979, Cuneo, Italy Lives and works in Turin, Italy. Educated at the Academy of Fine Arts in Florence, Ariaudo’s transdisciplinary research draws on anthropology, sociology, ritualism, sport and leisure. His research investigates, and at times destabilizes, those anthropological and social short-circuits that lead to the formation of a specific train of thought, to the establishment of a tradition or simply to the expression of a cliché. On a formal level, Ariaudo constructs mechanical and sculptural devices, and engages in performances, video and installations that, by virtue of small perceptual variances, tend to disturb the habitual gaze of the spectator. His work highlights and features “the play of forces at play”- that tension between contrasting movements and energies that leads to a specific subject becoming an object of contention (between tradition and modernity, power and submission).
