Sculpt the Motion

Sculpt the Motion shows continuous transformations of metallic bodies through different urban plans. Contemporary architecture is a scenario for performance, an experience as a sculptural promenade in continuous flux. Silver strata of insulating material in action via the body become mobile sculpture evoking Boccioni’s Futurist dynamism. This film echoes back to the textile kinematics of Serpentine Dance, recalling a mobile texture and a continuous metamorphosis of shapes. The body becomes a ritualistic/gestural expression, partly from an interest in the depiction of the body as malleable material. Gilles Deleuze’s famous remark that the body is “but a series of images” remembered, desired, rejected and dreamt, is an apt description of its place within the piece.

A multi-disciplinary artist based in Milan, Devis Venturelli deftly employs the languages of video, performance, sculpture and installation to document ephemeral architectures and temporary utopias. He has participated in many solo and group shows in museums, institutions, art galleries throughout the world, including the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, Anthology Film Archive, PAC, Milano, Ace Gallery, Kunsthalle, Wien and la Biennale di Venezia.
