GIANMARCO DONAGGIO – MANIFESTARSI, 12:12, 2021 (ITALY)
watch in PPV
A hypothetical “cinema of matter”, is a process where the encounter with the world takes precedence over the need to represent it. A methodology influenced by the current of new materialism and informal art

The atavistic and eternal question of Hamlet is embodied in this audiovisual flow (which is also a flow of consciousness) based on a process of metaphorical transformations applied to the iconic image of a man with a skull in his hand. The famous Shakespearean monologue echoes submerged in scenic writing, all-digital, mainly made up of a signifying abstraction in which the self and the other from oneself merge and move away.
ISOLATION takes place in a space station. The couple living there is informed about the new world order.
“DON’T FORGET: THE HIDDEN ROOM IS FORBIDDEN.
OFFENDERS WILL BE PROSECUTED BY CIVIL AND CRIMINAL LAW”
The movement of two sides of a digital pattern towards and apart from one another is synchronised with the opening and closing of automatic sliding doors. Images of the headlands of Australia’s Botany Bay and the adjoining South Pacific Ocean, Port Botany and Sydney International Airport runways, divide to disclose the forms of towering ship-to-shore cranes and stacked shipping containers.
A short story, raw and simple, drawn almost as a child would do, which tells without words, of a moment, perhaps a dream, in which the younger generations get rid of the burden that would them to “inherit” a world (with all its systems of powers and propaganda) that for too long has been decaying and moving away from the idea of the common good.
ROAR (rus. “РОКОТ”) is a video installation about the process of searching for identity in moments of personal transformation. The project examines the boundaries of “male” and “female” in modern society, and self-acceptance through the internal and external nature.
Footage from the photographic series of Luca Locatelli “Hunger Solutions” – winner of the 2018 edition of The World Press Photo Contest /// Environment /// Stories.
A journey took on for the first time by the human eye through the robotic gaze. Technological evolution as seen by the machine arises as to the only solution for survival in the near future.
7 MOMENTS OF OBLIVION is an experimental film project of approx. 30 minutes in which cinematic know-how and artistic interpretation deal with questions of memory and visualization in a fluid, researching the concept of time:
The protagonist lives in a village in the Po Valley. We use this “end of the world” as a stage to counteract a (self-chosen) isolation in old age with the phenomenon of a transfigured memory.
In this Video-poem eleven young residents of the Friendship Village in Vietnam who are living with disabilities caused by Agent Orange dance their way from waking to dreaming. As their movements grow with humour and vulnerability we are welcomed ever deeper into their magical world.
It has been forty years since the Vietnam War. Yet, its toxic remnants are not fading. In a place called The Friendship Village outside Hanoi, live one hundred young people with disabilities they inherited from their parents’ and grandparents’ exposure to Agent Orange in the 1960s. In this Video-poem eleven of the village’s residents lead us through the whimsical experience of a day in their lives. We are welcomed ever deeper into their richly symbiotic world as the day progresses.
A self-portrait. A dance to relax into the uncertainty of being 32 years old and not knowing what’s going to come. Relaxing in both my masculinity and my femininity. Relaxing into the complexity of being a human being. Part of the project “Like a Man”.
The Inner Eyes of Tiresia (12’03 ”) – BODY Festival of Performing Arts, 2019
A fusion of Body Art and narration that brings to life the metamorphosis of the myth of Tiresias, blinded by the gods, on the artist’s body, who in return gave him the power of clairvoyance.
Parade – CORPO Festival of Performing Arts, 2019
The artist recalls the figure of the Warrior of Capestrano, the androgynous figure of the ancient Piceno people, wearing a breastplate faithfully reproduced in crochet. In a circular dance on itself, the artist recalls the dervishes and the Abruzzese folk tradition, weaving a link between old and new, between popular and contemporary art.
Presented in 2009 in Futuroma and Artcevia, in RoseRosse the artist immolates himself to the ultimate sacrifice, tearing his body and voice apart. Devoured, explored, named red roses invade the scene, the artist penetrates them by eating them and suffering their thorns. A sacrificial body immolated to the Act.
