by Matteo Guidi & Claudio Zulián
Within the framework of the LOOP Festival, Casa Asia hosts the presentation of the audiovisual project Origin, Body, City by the artists Claudio Zulian and Matteo Guidi, both with professional careers that fit perfectly with the themes that propose this project.
The proposal is based on the creation of a film, which is the outcome of the work done by the participants in the workshops led by Claudio Zulian and Matteo Guidi at the Torre Barrina de l’Hospitalet center. As a contribution to the general theme of the LOOP Festival, the beginnings of video art, the project is a personal meditation that covers some elements of the work of Nam June Paik. It is also an exploration of the city of l’Hospitalet through the performance of a group of young people of the Ithaca Association, and some images that indicate the urban environment.
