Giovanni Insaudo

AriK/KirA was inspired by Sylvia Plath’s poem ‘I am Silver’; a break from exact and unprejudiced reality.

It is a homage to the cruel truth, the one we all see, but tend to veil. The mirror as a truthful instrument, it reflects what it sees, it swallows us up as it is. In the story, the artist stages two women, different but complementary!

The bodies of the performers are the reflectant and reflected instrument, in it the fixed language will draw profit, they wear a plaster corset, a material restriction that symbolises the brutal inability of admission, an object that will inevitably be a search engine in language and a direct supplier of images.
