Before you nothing, after you nothing
Marco Pezzotta 2013
The project aims to build a narration using objects and environmental installations as an element of a tale. A main story may be told through a stage, a persona can be introduced from the place s_he inhabits. It is an attempt to structure a research about personal development, and it starts from a tale in which every observer can partway identify him or herself, or choose not to.
Marco Pezzotta is participating in the exhibition FACELESS part II at freiraum quartier21 INTERNATIONAL.
I was a resident artist of quartier21 during the month of October 2013. During my stay in Vienna I have been working often in relationship with the exhibition Faceless I was taking part to at the time (displayed at freiraum quartier21 INTERNATIONAL in MuseumsQuartier). I have been given, as a participating artist, an artist-guided tour through the exhibition, and at the time I have also been organizing a workshop for children (based on mutual awareness, empathy, and on the construction of a collective identity) under the project name “Lookalike”, to be realized with the support of the quartier21 staff.
Within a fully equipped and comfortable studio space I have been developing a project to be shown in Belgrade at the Serbian-Italian art space Beo_project, right after the end of my residency period. The whole project has been structured through images printed on chosen textiles and through a photo installation, and it was presented at the beginning of November 2013 under the name “Peaceful Planet”.
Thanks to the quartier21 artistic direction and staff and, most of all, to the other resident artists at the time, I consider now my residency in Vienna as one of the most useful, pleasant and productive episodes of my career.
