Performance by Mariano Bàino, Tommso Binga and Marco Palladini
Galleria Paola Verrengia, for the Giornata del contemporaneo promoted by AMACI –(Association of Italian Contemporary Art Museums), a nonprofit organization comprised of 24 institutions among the most important contemporary art museums of our country – will present an innovative poetic project about the new orality: “Tre poeti Tre”, by the artists Mariano Bàino, Tomaso Binga e Marco Palladini. Throughout the evening we will present three performances: “Sol Sonet” by Mariano Bàino, “Trilli e Strilli come Spilli” by Tomaso Binga, “La Linea non C’è” by Marco Palladini, with a few excerpts from Poesia a comizio (anthology of poetry, Edizioni Empiria, Rome, 2008 curated by Marcello Carlino and Francesco Muzzioli).
Mariano Bàino lives and works in Naples. He has been among the founders of the magazine “Baldus” and Gruppo ’93. He published several books of poetry, such as Camera iperbarica (Tam Tam 1983); Fax giallo (Il Laboratorio 1993; Zona 2003); Pinocchio (moviole) (Piero Manni 2000). He participated in various festivals of poetry in Italy and abroad. His first novel, L’uomo avanzato (Le Lettere), has just been published. Under the provisional title Sol sonnet he gathered the most recent poems, mostly unpublished. Expression doesn’t mean anything. But perhaps there’s a reference to a poetic form that has the capacity – in a time when everything gets old fast –to be already obsolete. A “raft” made of fourteen logs, with an indignant formalist on top of it. And drifting.
