Davinio’s Works
Knives , video, 1’28”, 2007
Nature Obscure , video, 1’45, 2007
“Nature\_Obscure" and “Knives” are part of a series which includes video, digital images, photography, about the topics peace and nature, realized in 2007. The digital works by Davinio do not focalize on the aesthetics of the electronic image, but on its “matter”, making visible its texture done of pixels, in a perspective that embraces some practices of the historical avant-gardes, such as Futurism and Lettrism, Dadaism, Concrete poetry. In Knives , short video about peace, on the contemplative view of a meadow echoes of present and maybe future wars reach us in the form of voices from radio stations. In Nature\_Obscure , starting from photos realized by the artist in Brazil , Nice and Italy , Nature is evoked as enigma giving us an ultimatum, a revelation of its unknown deepness, made visible with some unexpected text and graphic elements.

Presentation by Alberto Mori

Translate: http://it.babelfish.yahoo.com/
Nell’ultimo ventennio la videopoesia è andata definendo con sempre più pertinenza il suo campo d’azione.
Lasciata alle spalle la stagione delle post avanguardie artistiche e poetiche è divenuta un territorio visivo extratestuale mobile e duttile in grado di interagire sia con la sperimentalità della parola poetica sia con l’estetica della videoarte.Il videopoeta legge la realtà contemporanea con video di breve durata dove ogni volta l’esperimento estetico crea sempre una interpretazione in azione di qualsiasi tipo di realtà: da quella urbana a quella pubblicitaria, mediatica, ecc. poichè crea versi che “vedono” direzioni e possibilità di arricchire la percezione e la riflessione nei linguaggi contemporanei.Caterina Davinio e Giorgio Longo sono due autori storici della videopoesia e con il loro intervento offriranno un panorama di esperienze e di testimonianze del loro fare poesia attraverso le immagini.
