The Mediterranean Sea, once understood as a fluid entity aiding the formation of networks and exchange, is now the scenario of a humanitarian crisis and heated geopolitical dispute.
Following scholar Alessandra Di Maio’s adaptation of the Black Atlantic theory to the Mediterranean, Black Med aims at intercepting the trajectories that sounds trace passing through this protean area. Divided into different chapters, the Black Med listening sessions are based on a DJ set supported by a series of projected slides containing theoretical texts and backstories referring to the musical pieces, grouped by elegiac themes. The sessions explores different journeys of sound movement, touching topics such as alternate use of technology, migrations, peripheries and interspecies.
Simone Bertuzzi (b. 1983) and Simone Trabucchi (b. 1982) have been collaborating as Invernomuto since 2003. Although their work focuses primarily on the moving image and sound, they also integrate sculpture, performance and publishing into their practice.
Currently they are developing the project Black Med, initiated for Manifesta 12 (Palermo), which is part of the performance programme at the 58th International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia, curated by Ralph Rugoff. In 2019 they’re having solo shows at Pinksummer, Genoa (April), Leto Gallery, Warsaw (April), NN Contemporary Art, Northampton (June) and Galleria Nazionale, Rome (October). Invernomuto is represented by Pinksummer gallery, Genoa.
