The Espejo Organization for the Arts and Rabbithole Projects are honored to present Home/House, a performance by Italian artist Giacomo Colosi. Basing his work in the concepts of absence, personal memories, and vulnerability, the New Jersey-based artist creates a performance that explores the relationship between language and form and how cultural context affects the way in which we create meaning.
Embodying the physical, conceptual, and emotional aspects attributed to the Home/House relationship, Colosi explores the conceptions that connect an architectural and empty structure into a psychological space of comfort and security. Using a raw, humorous, and absurd style, Colosi invites the audience to participate in this experience creating a synergy with his environment and encouraging participants to revisit their own memories and, maybe, discover something new in their process.
Born in Messina, Italy, Giacomo Colosi is an independent performance and video artist whose work explores the human condition and its performative practices. Colosi has performed at art festivals all around Italy including Arte Contemporanea en Movimiento (2005), Festival Internazionale del Teatro in Piazza (2010), C.E.R.P. Le Arti In Citta Perugia Contemporanea (2007). Colosi has also performed in collaboration with Frieze Projects at Frieze Art Fair (2009), Biennale di Venezia, Nordic Pavilion (2009) and Non-Dancers performance at the Whitney Biennial (2012).
