Increase certainly, or possibly Binga! Within the poem io sono una carta (I Am A Piece of plain Paper), Bianca Pucciarelli Menna, alias Tomaso Binga, doesn’t paper over something. The very reverse: right here language and performative installations reveal the emergence of a sure subjectivity, the invention of language of her personal to problem the patriarchal society of Nineteen Seventies Italy. 

Within the work of Tomaso Binga (b. 1931 in Salerno, lives and works in Rome), defiance is each an announcement and a type of motion, notably along with her resolution in 1971 to undertake a male pseudonym as a parody of the privileges that males get pleasure from in society typically and within the artwork world particularly. Her conceptual and visible follow embraces collage, assemblage, poetry, portray in addition to efficiency. Her textual works oscillate expertly between experimental writing and visible analysis and place her among the many main figures of Italian phonetic and performative sound poetry. 

Tomaso Binga’s first solo exhibition in France, “Corps – poésie,” spans a number of a long time and themes—id and gender, social critique, the reappropriation of language and the manifestation of the physique—and contains beforehand unseen works. By interacting with and questioning the residential setting of the artwork centre, “Corps – poésie” is testomony to the significance and vitality of a novel physique of labor in at the moment’s creative, social and political context.
