Individual Project


Kunstraum am Schauplatz, Vienna (AT)

In this group exhibition at Kunstraum am Schauplatz, Eleni Kamma presents her video GEORGOFILI, a 27 minutes HD film produced in 2012, for the purposes of which she conducted research during her residency at the Villa Romana, Florence, as an international visiting artist in 2010 and 2011.

Throughout GEORGOFILI, an assemblage of different in time voices of Italy takes place. The old genre of Tuscan “Contrasto” verbal duels, in which the performers-poets Emilio Meliano and Realdo Tonti use their arguing skills to debate the politics and morality of contemporary Italy, meets historical educational dialogues from the age of enlightened despotism, performed and commented by the young Italian actors Lavinia Parissi and Marco Rustioni.
