The diary of an hollow abdomen



Milano, Italy

The performance consisted of intrepreting the Roman ruins through a skeleton inside them. The arena becomes the head, the columns the ribs and the severed pillars become the arms that run along the sides. With the flour I have drawn the brain that slides towards the intestine and with a megaphone I told the public of the Palatine the story of this lost identity.
