Romeo Castellucci - domani
domani is a performative action, starring the Brazilian performer Ana Lucia Barbosa. Romeo Castellucci dresses her in white, gives her a long tree branch with a shoe inserted on the end and asks her to move in repeated cyclical actions around a room. Barbosa pushes the rod along the floor, moving blindly in the space, which she shapes in unison with the music by Scott Gibbons, the American artist who has always swathed Castellucci’s works in his sonic perturbations.
The outcome is what Castellucci, in presenting the work, defines as an emblem. “Emblems are ‘tacit notes’, like hieroglyphics, which appear ‘mute’ to those who look at them without knowing what they mean. They are painted images that do not need to be told, but ‘seen’. This is what domani produces: signs that, in a play of cross-references, actively express contents, because they mean something other than themselves”.
