Hangar – Kernel Festival residency programme: Roberta Orlando
The project “LITS – Leave Immediately The Space” by Roberta Orlando was awared with a one month residency in Hangar by the Kernel Festival in the category of mapping.
The project describes the architecture contrast with the human body, taking inspiration from Urbanscreen art group and contemporary art installations.
The search of two hands that can not find each other among the obstacle, is extended to the physical exploration of the author with the entire structure. The images are integrated with an audio glitch that tells the desire to be reunited with their loved ones, destroying the wall until reaching the freedom to choose one’s own direction.
This identifies a symbolic transition passage, made of certainty and security nonexistent for the achievement of self awareness.The research carried out is concentrated on the construction and deconstruction of bodies within the architectural parts.
