ABOUT THE VIDEO:
Andreco: I’d give you every organ of my body, I’m a magician with a special skill, which is much more than cutting women in two parts. Each one of my organs has a life of his own, because I’ve got the alchemical formula with which I really own my body, and I’m getting concentrated on yours now. Music! (Text by Emanuela De Notariis)
Short Kort are showing your film: Organ Plays (Sonata D'Organi), why did you make that film and where did you seek your inspiration?
I use to draw person and animal figure with their internal organs, at the beginning was a sort of provocation against the traditional and superficial sense of beauty. It’s a way to underline the existence of a living organism, the complexity and the fragility of a body, that is something different from just a beautiful object. This video sign a evolution in my work, in this video the organs escape from the body and start to play music. The second part of the video in fact is a report of a installation that I made in collaboration with 7 musicians, the "Neil on impression", for a exhibition in Bologna “organ plays”. The musicians were playing in a big black cube made in wood and cotton and the people were all around the cube looking the musicians playing through the black cotton wall, the sensation was as observing the organs in functions under the skin.
