Elastic net, variable dimensions, performers
A group of people holds up a large elastic interwoven net that covers the entire basin outside the Fondazione. During the performance, the audience is able to interact with the elastic grid by freely moving below it. As people move underneath the net, its internal geometry keeps on changing, as the elastic grid adapts itself to the participants’ movements, actually giving shape to a new drawing, a sort of moving geographic grid. This installation is a tribute to “Elastic net” (1968) by Brazilian artist Lygia Clark: awork made of action and a collective body, with the two fundamental elements being a group of people interacting with the net.
