Alessandro Carboni presents Learning Curves/ rescaling urban rivers, a performance in which the artist recounts the journey and the experiences of his research along urban rivers in Asia. The performance is a mental geography reconstruction of places, perceptions, fragments, bodies, urban transformation and tensions that animate social change. Cities, crowds, tensions, urban tranformation, social changes, feelings, sensations of places visited are rappresented through the geosketching, a particular technique that reconstructs a miniature of the urban landscape composed of 6000 small objects positionated as grid on the urban space, street, pavements or squares.
During the performance, the artist manipulating objects, creates an emotional map, a territory that tells perceptions, fragments, stories and memories of the exploration. The performance will explore, through materials, images, and body sounds, new ways of representation of urban scales, between body and space: a journey through cartography, geography, performance and visual arts.
Learning Curves is a further stage of Overlapping Discrete Boundaries that explores and redefines, in a multidisciplinary way, key places in transformation and territories spread around the globe.
