L’Aquila Academy of Fine Arts Theater
free entrance subject to availability
In the staircase of the Accademia di Belle Arti in L’Aquila, designed by Paolo Portoghesi, Crispiani seems to be asking us a question: “Do you remember the classroom that burns, the door that speaks, the corridors that touch – how many stories have come down these stairs here, how many echoes in the courtyard that still reverberate in the silence of an entire summer. Were you there? We were”
Giulia Crispiani creates an erotic-subversive avant-garde that eradicates the patriarchal logic of language. Her artistic practice develops from the written word, privileging interviews, love letters and manifestos as formal outcomes of her research. Her work incorporates the generative force of feminist movements, configuring itself as the creation of a desired community that becomes an active part of her research.
