Now based in Rome, Giuseppe Vincent Giampino is a performer trained in Italy and Holland. He explores the loss of perspectival centrality of the post-human subject via a language he defines as “choreographic poverty”.
The performance space of ff_fortissimo finds two bodies communicating with one another through being in harmony with Lady Maru‘s techno music: a constant transmission of sensitive, sensual and erotic information, one that connects the figures despite them never being completely released from their immediate physical representation. The sound produced by the friction of the bodies on the surfaces creates a space for interaction between those two elements.
ff_ is a light, mobile space in which all the elements present participate independently
ff_ is a sign that appears and disappears, which makes itself present as it recedes
ff_ is an object that favours horizontality as much as vacant verticality
ff_ is a look through the opaque luminescence of a surface
The bodies resonate with each other along the rhythmic structures of the music, in the folds of the sound produced by the objects: the viewer-listener is questioned on the tactile level. The body is no longer a means at the service of a language, but it is the language that constitutes itself as a body.
