Catalogo della mostra “Un mito antropologico televisivo”, Ar/ge Kunst, Bolzano, 2011
The eleventh issue of the fanzine produced by Mousse for ar/ge kunst features the work of Italian artist Alessandro Gagliardo [ghost artists Maria Héléne Bertino and cuginodeandrade] exhibited in his solo show in Bolzano. Gagliardo’s artistic practice focuses on the impact that the documentary nature of television news exercises on the construction of a mythopoetic interpretation of contemporary Sicilian history. The project, entitled An Anthropological Television Myth, is divided into several chapters, in order to build a complex narrative of the events based on everyday life in the province of Catania and its villages. The images taken from his videos and installation are introduced by a critical text by Luigi Fassi.
