Con.Tatto

EN

Con.Tatto is an artistic project formed by Francesca Leoni and Davide Mastrangelo. Their exploration focus on the human condition in contemporary societies through various perspectives. Most relevant to their works is the topic of man-woman relationship in multiple social dimensions: romantic relationships, peoples’ customs and traditions, ideological and religious manipulation. They offer symbolic exempla of these conditions through their performative “tableau”. Con.Tatto is presently included in international festivals and events.

Their new works are distributed by Visualcontainer in Italy and by VIVO Media Arts Centre in Canada.

Con.Tatto è un progetto artistico composto da Francesca Leoni e Davide Mastrangelo. La loro ricerca si focalizza sulla condizione umana nelle società contemporanee, affrontata da diverse prospettive. Tra tutti, domina il tema della relazione uomo-donna nelle sue molteplici dimensioni sociali – dal rapporto di coppia, agli usi e costumi dei popoli, alle strumentalizzazioni ideologiche e religiose – di cui offrono exempla simbolici realizzati in “quadri” performativi.
Con.Tatto è attualmente inserito in festival ed eventi internazionali; vincitori della VI edizione del premio videoarte Maurizio Cosua – Venezia 2015.

Le ultime produzioni sono distribuite in Italia da Visualcontainer, in Canada da VIVO Media Arts Centre e in Medio Oriente da Vidivit videoart .
