[intimacy]

crossing?

This isn't consistent.

 

clemente ciarrocca is a multimedia artist and writer working through installation, text, video, sound, sculpture, and drawing. His work sublimates in film and explores performativity. This is performative. This practice is multiple. It cannot be located or redirected to a one set of urgencies, topics, strategies. It "does the work the sun does when the body takes sunlight or grass". The core interest lying in the relationship between making and reality, this practice projecting out of that core. Currently working on a new feature-length video work, preliminarily entitled The Waves/Timaeus, as well as playing with readymade sculpture and mixed-media drawing.

This is somewhat of a metaphysical practice. A lil deranged(ly), a lil derisory(ly). About the nourishment and development of a technique, of defining, representing and presenting reality. This is not about the exploration or disclosure of a specific issue, construction, theme or world condition; nor it begins, stands, stems, projects from any particular cum-text. Beginning everywhere, repeatedly, all issues, all themes are included, implied, in a way that cannot be evaded, nor paraphrased.

 

I am interested in intimacy as a collapse space. This includes any form of proximity, between plural identifications, and refers to material openness. 

I am interested in duration.

And I am interested in collapse, the pre-social, pre-political space of collapse. The junction, this inflection.

I am interested in material openness. I am interested in rhythm and sequencing, key strategies for aliveness and the breaking.

 

I am interested in sublimation.

I am interested in secrecy.

I am interested in the mystery that releases our need to know. 

 

I am interested in misery.

I am interested in grace.

I am interested in anguish.

 

I am interested in localization and delocalization. I am interested in assembling, resonance, the ecstatic, the neutral. Degeneration and Generation. Repetition, cyclical dynamics,

crossing?

This is inconsistent.

I am interested in thinking of anything as being essentially (just) an environment. I am interested in thinking of any work as being essentially an environment.

Feels good

 

The concept of scale.

Very important to me.

Thinking of closed spaces - interiors - as scaled-down reality dens. Thinking of this fingertip containing universal secrets at scale. Something small, wide resonance.

 

artist and writer working through installation, text, video, sound, sculpture, and drawing. Focusing on flesh, or the Surface, an open material. Something I refer to as flesh is at the center of my research and practice. This practice acquires sense by instantiating a specific work, the following statement:

Here is its flesh, exposed, unfolded to fold, stretched, passing.

All works can be described by this statement. All works at once are located by this statement.
