BARBARISM KILLS PERFORMANCE

December 2010, Turin

Originally entitled: “The pig and the young lady”
Soundtrack by Signal Electrique (Fr)
Footage by Jacopo Montaldo

After shooting the female actor didn’t want to appear in the video, scared of being called “Miss shit”.
In order not to waste this footage, Opiemme decided to patiently cover her face in each frame with letters to express her feelings.

In January 2011 this action took place again in Turin as a group performance by citizens and schoolchildren.
