PIETRO MARULLO | INSIEMI IRREALI COMPANY – WRECK-LIST OF EXTINCT SPECIES
WRECK – List of extinct species is an interdisciplinary performance mixing movement, sound and visual
art. A huge black plastic soft sculpture (like a pillow), inflated of air, moves in the space. As a hunter.
This abstract objet has a very evocative power. As it swallows and spits humain beings, it could be
consider like an allegory of Leviathans or a undersea legendary monsters, or a metaphor of Capitalism,
humain conditions, etc. It has the power to amplify the imagination of who is watching, multiplying
associations and conceptual layers.
