Gentle Unicorn

And what if the unicorn was nothing more than an ox as depicted in the Bronze Age,  a flat image hiding its second horn behind its first? This mythological creature lacks an origin that is solid enough to make it autonomous: and so, over the centuries, it was used and abused, stuffed full of content until it morphed into a pop icon. Chiara Bersani, an artist active in both the performance and the visual fields, pursues her investigation into the political body, its social role perceived and interpreted, devoting what is hers – her flesh, muscles, bones, heart, eyes and breath – to the unicorn, so that she can release it from all the wrongs it has suffered and present it with a new story, a choice. During the days of the Festival, you might even happen to run into it on the streets of Santarcangelo…
