On Saturday, 29 October, last day of the Rome Art Week, the Fondazione Cervelli Ribelli will host a live performance between Tommy and the artist Laura Mega. Tommy's technique will be employed by Laura to give life to something unique: a large-format artwork made with textile materials, simple day-to-day objects, acrylics and so much creativity.
Laura Mega works between Rome and New York. She studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome and at the University of Image in Milan. Her practice combines drawing, text, embroidery, and printing. In addition, she sometimes uses other materials (such as pink depilatory wax) on underwear, clothing, and textile elements – especially those belonging to old trousseaus. Through contemporary and straightforward language, Laura Mega transforms symbols of a constricted and predefined femininity into works capable of conveying and investigating emotional, social, and political issues.
LIVE PERFORMANCE, with Tommy Nicoletti and Laura Mega
Finissage Thursday, 29 October, at 4.30 p.m., free admission
The public can attend the performance until the work is completed
