Cesare Pietroiusti
Four Italian artists, including Emilio Fantin, Luigi Negro, Giancarlo Norese, Cesare Pietroiusti and New York-based artist Joan Jonas will collaborate on this performance work. By combining semi-concrete, semi-absurdist methods with a wide variety of media, the artists will create stories, a play, and a collective peformance about sculptures and actual sculptors whose exposure has waned into oblivion.

As part of Forgotten, Continuous, Influx: 30 hours at SculptureCenter

About the Artist
Cesare Pietroiusti??ôs artistic practice focuses on quizzical situations hidden within quotidian relationships and ordinary acts. His interest lies in the insignificant, the overlooked, the obsolete, and the misunderstood, which he transforms into memorable moments of social pose through committed interest and restrained series of gestures. In 2003, Pietroiusti participated in the 50th Venice Biennale with his work Riserva Artificiale, and an the course of 2005 alone, he made and distributed over 50,000 artworks for free, a practice he continues today in conjunction with his ongoing performance projects.

This performance is part of a 30-hour, non-stop series of performances being presented by SculptureCenter for PERFORMA07.
