a' pizza

Camilla’s art practice spans between installations and performances, engaging the audience in a world of playful and sensitive interaction, and encouraging them to explore inorganic objects, often overlooked in everyday life. These objects then become vehicles for social critique, underscored by lucid poetry. 

 

Camilla often actively involves the audience in her performances, entrusting them with crucial parts of the work, integrating them into it. The aura slips over the audience, an extreme consequence of what Umberto Eco (1932-2016), referring to the visual arts and informal painting, had called open work; that is, when the work is realised in an input of indeterminate stimuli and to a series of variable readings by the viewers. When the work is not clearly defined, viewers can select their own paths and readings, choosing viewpoints that leave out or indicate what the viewer finds interesting. 

 

The usage of food, such as pizza, as the central element of Full mime jobs – Pizza chef presented for the first time at Kunstschau (2022), in Lecce. It connects Gurgone’s work to its Italian roots, exploring an everyday iconography that is instantly recognisable and shared by a wide audience. The choice of food as a medium allows for the creation of a universal and accessible language that invites participation and reflection on the significance of Italian culture in contemporary society.
