Written by Sarah Patelli

On the occasion of the Italian Pavilion at the 59th Venice Biennale and promoted by the General Direction for Contemporary Creativity of the Ministry of Culture, “Marry the night” is a performative project by g. olmo stuppia.

“Marry the night” consists of four ecowalks in an open environment, chapters in which autobiographical experience and artistic research merge in a visionary synthesis. Four “walksscapes” to discover the esthetics of the “vast province” and its impact on the territory, using the cities of Venice and Palermo as examples. Inspired by the Stalker Collective and Tarkovsky’s poetics, they will walk four areas of the Italian province, exploring their soul and contradictions to shed light on the abuse of power of industrial culture against nature and its revenge.
