Winter bodyart festival in Carrara: when art lives through body

1st and 2nd February 2014: on stage the first international convention in Italy on the colorful world of body art

The art is born from the limbs: a word game? No, the simple truth: all forms of art arise from body through gestures that punctuate centuries of study, technique and creativity. But for some artists, the body is not just a tool, it is both the item to work on in an artistic way, a blank canvas to fill, and both the subject capable of expressing emotions and feelings, moving in space, giving rise to events.

Protagonist of countless contemporary and avant-garde currents, the body is at the core of debated art forms: from piercing, to tattooing, from soft forms of painting to the extreme of stripping away and self-harm. There are innumerable choices of expression and meaning that characterize the artists of body art. From Marina Abramovic’s suffered performance to the various declinations of the topic “human-subject” by Michelangelo Pistoletto, body art continues to fascinate and confuse, never stop telling something.

For those who want to know more, why don’t take advantage of the international convention of body art in Carrara? A unique opportunity, the first in Italy, to approach and understand an art form unknown to most people, but it can give unexpected suggestions.

A colorful winter in the scenographic context of the Apuan Alps and the Tyrrhenian Sea: Winter BodyArt festival awaits you from 1st to 2nd February 2014 at the trade fair complex in Marina di Carrara with a rich calendar of events from 10 am to 8 pm.

The program includes shows for adults and children, choreographies, live music, exhibitions, lectures, competitions of face and body painting. Carrara and its precious marbles become the meeting place of artists and new surprising forms of expression, in a perfect fusion of ancient and experimental, scenic beauties and phantasmagorical potentialities of human body.
