On the occasion of Rome Art Week, for Together's Electronic Lounge, Martina Di Lorenzo presents the "Distributore di Poesia", an installation with high interaction with the public, consisting of a restored children's balls dispenser, inside which inserted capsules containing poems by more or less known authors
The writing "Distributore di Poesie", which runs on the three sides of the machine, wants to underline the three-dimensionality of the interaction in which the viewer is involved, involving the viewer in the perception of the space and time in which he is immersed, stimulating his curiosity and will to know.
For the occasion, the poetic selection of the Poetry Distributor will be designed in a site-specific key, and will give expression to the "Contact" spirit that gives the event its name.
At the same time, in the living room:
LUNG-TA Remixed // Massimo Burgio aka Burningmax
LUNG-TA is an installation created as a site-specific intervention for a collective exhibition at the T.A.G. - Tevere Art Gallery in Rome, in which Massimo Burgio (aka Burningmax) participated in October 2021. The original installation of Burningmax was a memorial project for the victims of the covid pandemic in the Roma Metropolitana area, visually inspired by Tibetan prayer flags.
But contemporary art always has different levels of interpretation, and reading the notes and reviews of the visitors to the exhibition, the element perceived by the public was instead that of reinterpreting the tragedy of the pandemic, now that we see the light at the end of tunnel, in a playful, defusing, even cheerful perspective. Several visitors missed the connection with the Tibetan flags and interpreted the installation as a "cheerful carnival of colors in the Brazilian way".
Burningmax, in addition to experimenting with the languages of contemporary art, is also an electronic music DJ, and is linked to the Together Mansion community, one of the expressions of the Burning Man spirit in Rome, having also been one of the DJs participating in the cycle " Room Beats "promoted by Together Mansion, an initiative that now on the occasion of Art Week 2021 is revived with the inclusion of contemporary art interventions
