Giovanni Fontana, Poésie Epigénétique

23 august, at 7 pm (cocktail from 6:30 pm)

 

The poet-performer Giovanni Fonatana is a true «poly-artist», he extends and modifies the limits of poetry. His poetry is charged with new tensions, characterized by the contamination of systems, the fusion of separate universes, the use of new media and new supports, combining the enormous energies offered by science with the energies of the body and memory, through a different conception of the materiality of language, sustained by the voice; but it is an “other” voice, which on the one hand connects us to an area of ​​extinct orality, and on the other hand put us on the face of an unheard-of voice, through digital passages and new tools for sound synthesis.

The poly-artist, then, is the creator and actor of a «hyperpoetry». Thanks to its gesture, its energy, its constant pressure, the poetic body undergoes subsequent processes tuned to multidirectional roads and becomes the object of a progressive plastic modeling, so that, in relation to the «genotype» structure of the score, one could speak, for the evolutive phases in space-time, of Poésie Épigénétique (Epigenetic Poetry).
