Lorenzo Papanti [Italy] - 11th edition
A mechanism experiences lifting operations on an organic body, subject to the force of gravity. The work is part of a research aimed at the investigation of physical space, that is conceptualized through elementary performative actions. In this series of works I try to bring out the intangible condition of matter: it's continually subjected to opposing internal efforts, in a perennial search of equilibrium. The flow of tensions is present in all objects immersed in fields of forces (such as gravity). This flow confers an intrinsic vitality to each apparently inanimate object: this condition is made visible through the overtuning between the agent subject (a mechanism, without life) and the object that undergoes the action (a portion of human body, usually an agent subject).
