Marco Guglielmi Reimmortal

Marco Guglielmi is visual artist and performer, videomaker and sound designer. He was born in 1967 in Rome, where he still works and lives.
He has over thirty-five years of experience in the field of the experimental research on sounds. Marco starts working in digital/analogue editing and recording in the middle of the 80's, being a pioneer in Italy.
At the beginning of the new millenium Marco focuses on video productions for bands and dj's and for art exhibitions, theatre and dance.
Finally in the last decade Marco concentrates on performative and visual arts, creating sculptures and installations of 'arte informale' marked by the confluence of all media and by a strong experimental attitude. He has now a leading role in the italian avant-garde scene. As ReImmortal, Marco is solely dedicated to his performative projects under 11HellHeaven, the Association he founded with Omari Tessala Marax in order to promote and produce "borderline Arts and Cultures". He concentrates on what he considers the two main projects in his artistic career: "SonicMandala" and "Compuster".

SonicMandala is an alchemical approach to sound stimulating the vision through resonance by esaphonics: a technique developed by Marco in 2013 to create a sonic bubble inside which the vision is generated.
Phase I of "SonicMandala" was performed for the first time in Rome in 2013 at the Contemporary Dance Center Duncan 3.0. Then in 2014 Phase II comes in a double location: Duncan 3.0 and Spazio Interiore as a part of a double conference-debate with the participation of the Tibetologist Filippo Lunardi from 'La Sapienza' in Rome. Phase III is performed in 2016 at Centro Danza Balletto di Roma on the occasion of the World Dance Day under the Patronage of CID (Conseil International de la Danse) - UNESCO in Paris.
On February 2017, in Sala Santa Rita (former Santa Rita Church at Teatro Marcello) the entire cycle (Phase I, II, III) receives the Patronage of the City of Rome. Under the same Patronage, SonicMandala will be performed in The Factory of MACRO (Museum of Contemporary Arts in Rome) on June 2-3.

In 2017 Marco creates "comPUSter", a "Creature" (not merely a sculpture, being made with parts of animals under resin) in a set of six works based on informal art/minimal art. Each object and each single detail is either a piece of proto-industrial antiques or hand-made by the artist himself. The deep integration between ready-made and videoart, between mechanical and biological elements (such as animal carcases under resin), the focus on conceptuality and the multisensorial dimension makes the originality and uniqueness of this artwork.
"De-ComPUSter" (the first one) was shown on February 2017 at Fondamenta, within the prestigious international magazine 'Inside Art'. It was projected on maxi-screen at Figueres, the home town of Dali in Spain, for "Spoleto Arte meets Dali" and in Arles, France, for "Spoleto Arte meets Van Gogh". Moreover, it was projected during Basel Art Week 2017 as part of Artbox Project at "Luminator" (Jean Tinguely) Platform inside the EuroAirport.
The exhibition of the full set is planned on June 2-3 in the Factory of MACRO (Museum of Contemporary Art) under the Patronage of the City of Rome. "De-ComPuster" and "Calcoli improbabili" (the second ComPUSter) will then be in Venice with Spoleto Arte at Pro Biennale 2017 in the cloister of the Church of San Francesco delle Vigne from 08 May to 17 June. After the two artworks will fly to Berlin, where they will attend the exhibition "Still Leben" by InArte Werkkunst from 23 June to 15 July, and then again in Venice for Biennale 2017 with the dutch 'GaleriaZero' at Zattere - Fondazione Emilio Vedova from 16 to 20 July.
ComPUSter will also be part of the XI Biennial of Florence at the Fortezza da Basso, and included in the Official Catalogue of the Biennale.
In December, the first Personale of Marco Guglielmi is planned in the Berliner exhibition space of 'InArte Werkkunst', concomitantly with the release of the first Official Catalog of his works.

DeComPUSter (ComPUSter n.01) “DeComPUSter (ComPUSter n.01)”

Ready-made, assemblage, mixed media (mainly wood, iron, organic materials ) + videoart
n. 6 free-standing installations; each about cm 200 height × 100 width x 150 deep
Date Completed: 2017

ComPUSter is a set of six installations based on informal/conceptual art, mixed with videoart. Each installation works as a fully-equipped audiovisual module. The focus on performance, the integration of organic materials (such as oxen brains under resin) and the use of video expand the concept of ready-made to new and unexplored horizons.

Concept:
ComPUSter is about the decomposition of both organic and mechanical matter, showing at the same time the obsolescence of materials and the obsolescence of minds, ideas and cultures. Old computers and proto-industrial machines joins the brand new computers in the same destiny: the inevitability of decline and oblivion. Within the common concept, each ComPUSter is a unique representation of a different idea.

n.1 DeCom PUSter 
Concept: computers are corrupting our intellectual faculties like a brain meat grinder. The blade dominating the composition is a metaphor of the link between the observer and the eye looking from the installation monitor. The eye in the video is the eye of social media: we ourselves created our Big Brother.

n.2 Calcoli Improbabili 
Concept: Science and philosophy, the two greatest systems that have governed the fate of humanity for over two millennia, have proved false and questionable. What is true today will not be tomorrow; and delegate to science the explanation of reality is an illusion, because the reality changes with the opinions that we express on it. It is therefore perfectly plausible that the equation "1 + 15" makes "cow", and the (un)Probability Calculator represents the most advanced instrument of approximation to the ultimate truth.

n.3 Calcolatore di Morte 
Concept: Anyone who thinks that war can solve problems has a chicken brain. This - in no uncertain terms - is the message of an artwork in which a Death machine is operated by a chicken head. On the battlefield, the "toy soldiers" are dehumanized pawns on a surreal and grotesque chessboard whose stupidity is rendered in an absurd video-projection.They are sent to die by chicken-brained bureaucrats that have nothing to do but clawing a button.

Calcolatore di longevità (ComPUSter n.04) “Calcolatore di longevità (ComPUSter n.04)”

The Longevity Calculator (“They are Killing us!”) is the forth of six ComPUSters by Marco Guglielmi – ReImmortal.
The big pharmaceutical companies are the main industry of death – much more then the war industry. Their increasing profits require to produce more and more sick people, and keeping them permanently. So they need to come up with ever more subtle and pervasive systems to induce people to lose their health: such as create new unhealthy habits, mystify information, seduce with false promises of well-being that actually produce disease and death.
Life is programmed from the womb to the grave; there is no escape. And the Longevity Calculator puts people on the same level as object undergoing planned obsolescence: we all have an expiration date. And the void is never returnable. 

Medusa

Medusa is an eclectic and experimental artist. She develops her art strongly arising from herself and ranging from photography to performances and writing. Always in search for new artistic languages, she enacts mutant and bizarre visions, playing with irony and provocations that can also get cruel.
She exhibits since 2008 both in galleries and in the underground scene. Among the others: Pelanda @ Macro (Museum of Contemporary Art in Rome);  Independent Festival of Photography Red Eyes at Forte Prenestino; all the editions of Lady Fest, and recently 11HellHeaven Grand Opening at Inside Art , Rome.
In October 2016 she created and organized 1 0 1 0, a photography and performance event which was held at the Mondrian Suites Gallery in Rome.
In April 2017 she attended the Hacker Tube Porn Film Festival at cinema Kino in Rome with WHITE, her first short film.
In may 2017 she joined the collective exhibition ARTtundressed in Miami.

Fiamma Zagara

Born in Naples, Fiamma is an art and psychology addicted. She traveled a lot and now she lives and works in Rome. Her atelier is in via Orazio 31.
Many are her exhibitions in Italy and abroad (in Austria, France, Spain, Prague, Berlin, London and New York) and the awards she received. Fiamma exhibits at Palazzo Venezia in Rome twice: in 2009 with “Emozioni a colori”, and again in 2011 for the Venice Biennale.
In 2013 she is in Palermo at Palazzo dei Normanni, with “Contaminazioni Dionisiache”. In 2015, at the Mastio della Cittadella in Turin, she joined the Italia-Cina Biennale. In Rome she presents “Bipolarism” inside Banca Generali headquarters.
In 2016 Fiamma cooperates with Michelangelo Pistoletto and creates a steel Flame inserted in the “Terzo Paradiso per l’Arma dei Carabinieri” in Rome; at Grattacielo Pirelli in Milan she is co-protagonists of  “Il tempo delle donne. Realtà, Astrazione, Mito.” In 2017 she takes part in Pro Biennale at Palazzo Grifalconi Loredan, Venice, and in Spoleto Arte exhibition at Palazzo Leti Sansi, Spoleto.
Although with strong roots in the Italian cultural heritage, her creative force gives place to an original, evolving plastic language. As an alchemist, Fiamma manipulates and transforms all sorts of recycled materials (wood, aluminum, jute, polyethylene, tubes, wires, glass), and produces multi-level artworks characterized by the alternation of full and empty. The primordial colors – and, more recently, gold and silver -, the metamorphosis of matter, the archetypal forms are expression of her intimate research for harmony and balance combined with civil and social commitment.

Piotr moves on the border between transparency and opacity, both aesthetic and semantic. From 2011 he “lives” his personal exhibitions. His language is conceptual yet un-cold, poetical and political.
“What remains is what is put on the table but also what is returned back. Often the rest responds to what was said at the beginning of this journey about those ‘ small things of little worth ‘. The rest is all that remains between the ashes when you turn off the fire, and then here are some of these studies, here’s these remains. “

RE.MI. "HyperPsychic"

RE.nato MI.nutaglio (Neaples, 1926 – Rome, 2011) is the only 11HellHeaven artist who is no longer living. It is a well deserved tribute to a true Traveller in unconscious realms, exploring the darkest ghosts of the mind through a unique pictorial language inspired by art brut and growing unpredictably beyond all categorizations.
His existence was entirely devoted to art, in his dual role as sensitive painter and as a collector and connoisseur. Pain, sorrow and religious exaltation grafted over the years on a temper already inclined by nature to psychic hypersensitivity, generating on canvas a crazy jumble of ghosts and recurrent hallucinations.
All the vast production of RE.MI. (especially in his last years, when he lived sick and in total isolation, painting with feverish zeal on every surface he could get his hands on) evokes a grandiose choral fresco of dreamlike visions that bring the artist close to the spirit of Hieronymus Bosch (1453-1516), and for which the most fitting definition could be “hyperpsychic painting”.
 Bizarre, macabre and dreadful, RE.MI.’s hyperpsychic painting with its ugly deformations and jarring colors discloses all the fears of hallucination, while the deepest intimacy of  dreams reveals an extremely real and universal bitter satire.
