THE BODY OF ENERGY (of the mind)
The project by Stefano Cagol documented in the book is a journey across Europe during which he carried out a metaphorical and symbolic survey to 'give body' to energy, immaterial and invisible: cultural energy, individual energy, collective energy, exchanges of energy among people and environment.
It has been realized in 15 museums and art initiatives – like Museum Folkwang, Essen; MAXXI, Rome; Museion, Bozen; Kunst Halle Sankt Gallen; ZKM, Karlsruhe – crossing 10 nations from Norway to Gibraltar during the 6 months trip. By each stop the artist achieved participative actions that involved the public and have been captured by photo, video and an infrared camera as symbolic energy keeper.
The book contains an introduction by Veit Loers and statements, among others, by Andreas Beitin, Tobia Bezzola, Giovanni Carmine, Letizia Ragaglia, Andrea Viliani. The project and the book have been realized within the framework of VISIT, the Artist in Residence Programme of the RWE Foundation Language: English
