“L'Erba Cativa (l'an mor mai)”: A Collective performance directed by Andreco

Juxtapoz // Thursday, August 13, 2015
“L'erba Cativa (l'an mor mai)” is a collective performance that draws inspiration from some timeless images and words, timeless because of their subversive power. These come from Aeschylus's Oresteia, and especially from the figures of the Furious Erinyes, “those baleful children of the night” that symbolize the impossibility of taming wild nature. Rebellious figures difficult to categorize. Presences as enigmatic and mysterious as the performers of the parade that burst into the Santarcangelo Festival 2015, on Saturday July 18th.

Julia Randall: Lures, Decoys, Tongues, and Bubble Gum

Juxtapoz // Thursday, August 13, 2015
Julia Randall is in love with drawing, and uses her seductive technique to craft images that subtly challenge assumptions about corporeality, desire, and the natural world. Intersecting sensibilities activate her work; images are simultaneously erotic and humorous, beautiful and repulsive. Although she clearly operates in the realm of fantasy, Randall uses observation-based drawing and hyperrealistic technique to create images that are surreal and suggestive.

Sky Ladder today is tender, and touches my heart deeply: it carries affection for my hometown, my relatives and my friends. In contrast to my other attempts, which set the ignition time at dusk, this time the ladder rose toward the morning sun, carrying hope. For me, this not only means a return but also the start of a new journey.
