A few stories in the shape of abstract objects, Francesco Pedraglio

Live at the National Portrait Gallery
Thursday 16th June, 2011

A few stories in the shape of abstract objects is a performance based on suppositions and rumours, a narration that uses invisibility and abstraction as red threads to make sense of a number of seemingly chaotic clues. Turning to the help of an Egyptian man and his French alter-ego, a rock, an arrow, a hole in the ground and a stomach filled with earth, Pedraglio attempted to demonstrate the existence of non-experiential memories and their link with the production of abstract objects.
