Mani Nostre / Talking Hands


Talking Hands is a story suspended between reality and poetry. A train ride through Italy from north to south to investigate the relationship of its inhabitants with legality and corruption. What results is a composite picture, where are the hands of the respondents to tell the stories, along a track that alternates the reality of the documentary with the abstraction of video art.

17 September 2016, 14 -18 h, Greek Pavilion, 15 Biennale Architettura, Giardini, Venice.

I will take part with Nation25 and The Nationless Pavilion in "Exile Europa".

In this occasion I will introduce the art work "Pangea"by Nation25 (Sara Alberani, Elena Abbiatici and Caterina Pecchioli).

Pangea is an imaginative map born from the reconfiguration of different states, that, as emerged continents, are returning on their primary and unitary form. This image of reunited continents rises up many questions "and answers" on the way we are actually dealing with migrations and human rights.

7-9 August 2015 "Social Choreography / Coreografia Sociale" at Festival Why Not at Tolhuistuin in Amsterdam. Info:


 Caterina Pecchioli Social Choreography foto Veronica Citi

Social Choreogaphy photo Veronica Citi


For WhyNot I will adapt Social Choreography to the garden context of the Tolhuistuin. Social Choreography is an interactive installation with chairs, in which the audience becomes involved in an open-ended performative exchange. I invite the audience to play with simple positions in space and daily dynamics. The performance creates a space to experiment and reflect on how simple gestures can influence the emotional, social and power relations between each other.


"The viewer is asked to occupy several often diametrically opposed roles – parent, child, chairman, member of a professional group, and in the most generic sense – performer, spectator. This displaced re-enactment of habitual patterns of behaviours allows the visitor to become aware of slipping in and out of different social roles. At the same time actions like - explaining, listening, praying or waiting are deprived of their usual meaning, and can be re-enacted, objectified, experimented with." (Alena Alexandrova)

finissage sedeoergosum3.0 la pagina bianca Label201



performance in 3 capitoli 
di Caterina Pecchioli e Cesare Pietroiusti
con la partecipazione di Cristina Bonaventura
La performance si basa sull’associazione metaforica tra la sedia vuota (protagonista della serie fotografica in mostra) e la pagina bianca. Entrambi gli oggetti, concepiti per accogliere qualcosa o qualcuno, divengono significanti anche attraverso la mancanza di questo, per un'assenza che si fa, paradossalmente, presenza. Come sottolinea  Terrence W. Deacon in “Natura Incompleta. Come la mente è emersa dalla materia”, ci sono alcune assenze che sono essenziali per accedere alla comprensione della natura umana. Deacon definisce questi fattori assenziali. "Nostalgia, desiderio, passione, appetito, lutto, aspirazione - sono tutti basati su un'analoga intrinseca incompletezza, un 'essere privi' che di essi è parte integrante". La sedia vuota e la pagina bianca offrono la possibilità di riflessioni che non si rivelano in una dimensione di “pieno”; allo stesso modo la scoperta dello zero, sempre con Deacon: “è stata uno dei massimi progressi della storia della matematica. Disporre di un simbolo che designasse la mancanza di una quantità (…) ha trasformato il concetto stesso di numero, e rivoluzionato i processi di calcolo”. Così come la distribuzione di sedie vuote, in uno spazio dato, è la “scenografia” di una particolare forma di socialità, avvenuta o a venire, che immaginiamo anche senza assistervi, la pagina bianca è il luogo dove il segno, linguistico o pittorico, sta per (o, a volte, non riesce ad) apparire, così come il luogo da cui il segno è stato cancellato. La pagina bianca è quindi lo spazio simbolico dell'attesa, della perdita e della memoria, dell'impossibilità e della potenzialità illimitata.
performance in 3 chapters
by Caterina Pecchioli and Cesare Pietroiusti
with the participation by Cristina Bonaventura
The performance is based on the association between the empty chair (the protagonist of the photographic series in the exhibition) and the white page. Both objects, designed to host something or someone, become as well meaningful through the lack of this, for an absence that becomes, paradoxically, presence.
As emphasized Terrence W. Deacon in "Incomplete Nature. How Mind Emerged from Matter", there are some absences that are essential to the understanding of human nature. Deacon defines these factors “absential”. "Longing, desire, passion, appetite, mourning, loss, aspiration – all are based on an analogous intrinsic incompleteness, an integral without-ness that is an integral part of them." The empty chair and white page offer the possibility of reflections that do not reveal themselves in a dimension of "full"; likewise the discovery of zero, with Deacon, "was one of the greatest advances in the history of mathematics. Have a symbol that designate the lack of a quantity (...) has transformed the concept of a number, and revolutionized the process of calculation."
As well as the distribution of empty chairs, in a given space, is the "scenography" of a particular form of social relations that we imagine even without seeing it, the blank page is the place where the sign, linguistic or pictorial, is going to appear, as well as the place from which the sign has been deleted. The white page is then the symbolic space of waiting, loss, memory, inability and of unlimited potential.

Still Neverland due schermi


Neverland / L’Isola che non c’è

Video installazione su due schermi Durata: 4 min 34 sec. (loop) Anno: 2013

Prodotto nel contesto del progetto “Controcarretta della Speranza”, Pantelleria.

Il video mostra un’azione di andata e di ritorno in loop. "Ho scelto di ripetere io stessa quello che è ed è stato il cammino di molti migranti sulla costa di Pantelleria, nel punto della costa che Garzia Marquez descrive come paesaggio lunare. Nasce attraverso questa azione un video sulla migrazione come ricerca costante di un luogo reale ed immaginario dove “approdare”. Il terreno instabile delle rocce vulcaniche rende l’azione complessa, come complesso è il percorso che porta a partire e a tornare, in una costante ricerca di un luogo e di se stessi"

Neverland / L'isola che non c'è

two channel video installation, duration: 4' 34'' loop

Produced in the context of  the project "CCDS - Controcarretta della Speranza", Pantelleria, 2013.

The video shows an action of "go and back" in a loop. In the action I am climbing the cost of the island of Pantelleria (Sicily) where hundreds of migrants have been and still are disembarking every year. The landscape appears as a moon land, as Garzia Marquez has been describing it. The black vulcanic rocks, sharp and unstable, are bringing the climbing action challenging as challenging is to leave the known toward something unknown in a constant search of a place and of yourself.

Still Giglio 02

still from GIGLIO by Caterina Pecchioli 2013


On January the 13, 2012 at 21.45 the massive cruise ship Costa Concordia under command of captain Schettino, crashed into a rock and capsized near the Tuscan Island of Giglio, Italy, killing 32 people. The giant cruise shipwreck, lying on its side next to the cost, became a part of the Giglio Island landscape. The film does not focus on a reconstruction of the event but shows the paradoxical situation created by the coexistence of the Island’s daily life during a summer day, and the presence of this immense and colourful carcass. This surreal image brings at the same time a co-presence of death and life, being and disappearing, happiness and tragedy. The film plays with the thin line that separates them and makes more tangible how fast can one change into the other. 
The film, in a form between video art and documentary, focuses on the silence, memory and loss, and absurdity of this kind of tragedies. The people entering the ship in the film are exactly 32 as the victims of the accident to whom the film is dedicated.

Memorie Stratificate 
di Caterina Pecchioli

"... questa collezione non dice il suo passato, lo contiene, come le linee d’una mano, 
scritto nei soggetti dei quadri, nel loro stile, negli schizzi preparatori, nelle note di ricerca dei quaderni, negli appunti, 
nei ritagli di giornale sulle vite e sulle morti, nelle omissioni e presenze, nelle storie orali, nei segni, nelle tecniche, 
nei colori, frammenti, sovrapposizioni." La collezione e la memoria 3. (C. Pecchioli)

Pecchioli ricostruisce in un percorso a tempo di 15 minuti per 5 spettatori per volta, una invisibile città della memoria, attraverso l’eccezionale stratificazione di fonti, opere d’arte e materiali di archivio di una collezione precisa, quella ospitata a Montelisi, a cui ha dato vita il collezionista Carlo Pepi, nel corso di lunghi anni.
Narrazioni e ricordi stessi del suo primo depositario diventano fonte di ispirazione e parte viva, interagente di un’originalissima “mappa a memoria” pensata da Pecchioli tra le stanze e le carte, le lettere, gli appunti, i ritagli di giornale, andando a comporre per un preciso quadro temporale, una nuova pulsante stratificazione dell’archivio accompagnata dalle notazioni personali dell’artista ispirata dai celebri racconti di Calvino. Niente a che vedere con visite guidate, la presenza del collezionista si configura, nella ricomposizione dell’artista, come una suggestiva ed autorevole voce narrante che dà respiro alle carte sottraendole dalla loro potenziale inerzia. 
M. F. Pepi

Layered Memories 
by Caterina Pecchioli 
"... This collection does not tell its past, it contains it as the lines of an hand, 
written in the subjects of the paintings, in their style, in the preparatory sketches, in the notes and clipboard, 
in the newspapers about their lives and deaths, in the omissions and in the presences, in oral histories, signs, techniques, colors, fragments and overlapping." The Collection and the Memory 3 (C. Pecchioli) 
Pecchioli reconstructs an invisible city of memory, during a journey of 15 minutes for 5 viewers at a time, through the unique layering of sources, works of art and archival materials of a precise collection, housed in Montelisi, created by the collector Carlo Pepi, in the course of many years. 
Narratives and memories of her first depositary become source of inspiration and a living part. Pecchioli designed an original "memory map" of the rooms and the cards, letters, memos, newspaper clippings, that are going to compose for a specific time frame, a new stratified archive. This is also accompanied by Pecchioli notations inspired by the famous novels of Italo Calvino. Nothing to do with a guided tour, the presence of the collector is configured as an evocative and influential narrator who makes the papers breathing and subtract them from their potential inertia.

During the residency I am working on a site specific action-video. The video shows an action of “go and back” in continuous loop. In the action I am climbing the cost of the island of Pantelleria (Sicily) where hundreds of migrants have been and still are disembarking every year. The landscape appears as a moon land, as Garzia Marquez has been describing it. It comes out from this action a video on migration as a existential condition of constant research of a real and imaginary place where to “land”. The black vulcanic rocks, sharp and unstable, are bringing the climbing action challenging as challenging is to leave the known toward something unknown in a constant search of a place and of yourself. (Video still of "Neverland / L'Isola che non c'è" by Caterina Pecchioli).
