Andrea Matarazzo – 6.9, 1:31, 2020


6.9, (1’31 ”) – CORPO Festival of Performing Arts, 2020
The tragedy of November 23, 1980, which shook Irpinia killing nearly three thousand people, is remembered through the use of a white sheet, charcoal and the artist’s body. Ninety seconds to relive the terrible tragedy. Andrea Matarazzo becomes a medium who records the intensity of the shock, a sort of human seismograph that connects the paper and the earth.
