Giulia Crispiani and Scomodo
Bangarang is a discourse open to everyone, started between the community of Scomodo and the artist Giulia Crispiani in July 2021 and it is part of Romaeuropa Festival 2021 – Special Projects session, curated by Locales. The title is inspired by the cry of Peter Pan and the lost children in the film Hook. A cry that comes after almost two years of pandemic, of forced isolation, of the impossibility of touching, dating, going out.
BANGARANG’s process of investigation is positioned within the use of writing as an artistic practice for Giulia Crispiani, and is nourished by the contents and research that Italy’s the largest editorial team, Scomodo, has been creating in the city of Rome since 2016. It is the under 30s, together with the artist, who punctuate small signals of light in the midst of the darkness of a still ongoing pandemic who drag visitors towards their point of view, that of a generation that has suffered the most side effects of forced closures, of the suspension of face-to-face teaching, of the right to invest in the idea of the future as for previous generations.
Bangarang is an externalization, an enthusiasm, a funeral – expression and energy.
Bangarang is a box pointed out of a window that hopes to make passersby dance.
Above all it is desire shared by a heart pumping out of a breast.
In a way, Bangarang is a choir. An impetus and a force.
An invitation to empty and fill the voice with words.
An excuse to breathe in unison.
Bangarang is a focal point.
An anniversary, a party for all, that aligns the thoughts and puts them in contact.
A space full of bodies.
And if I told you things as they are it would also become a love letter. A list of aspirations.
