Statement

Paolo Bertocchi is an installation and performance artist whose work relates directly with the performer's body, sometimes encompassing it or being manipulated by it. Mr. Bertocchi's installations draw the audience in to question both the endurance of the performer/artist and outside cultural institutions. The performer's gestures are slow, calculated and precise. In this condition the human being is at the same time both present and absent, man and object, in a circling of two extremes.
