Let’s Swing / feat. Giorgio Bartocci / Sziget Festival 2015 / Budapest / Hungary
Let’s Swing! is a playful artistic-architectural installation.
The concept is very simple: a wooden circle emerges from the ground as the skeleton of a prehistoric animal that accommodates ten swings.
The wooden roof hosts the work of Italian artist Giorgio Bartocci. His site specific paintings look like the habitat of odd multifaceted humanoids floating at the mercy of ‘liquid modernity’. Lost between social relationships and virtual insanities, falling to pieces and recomposing into new forms, in a universally speaking and kaleidoscopic work in progress, living outside of time.
The visitors swing in and out of Bartocci’s scenary, peacefully floating - just like his characters in a cathartic stream of consciousness.
