SOLOS is an experiment created by Estela Lapponi, a brazilian artist from São Paulo, performed on 9th, 10th and 11th december 2016 at the event ENTRE // ARTE E ACESSO [Between // Art and Access] promoted by Itaú Cultural. In SOLOS the artist intended an aesthetic experience of deterritorialization for the public joining dance, performance and visual arts. The installation is composed by a soundscape, sand floor and an object - walking stick . In this work the artist aims to create an environment in which the sensation of time and space are totally different from what is lived outside of it, thus creating a reality that overlaps with the others. The performance action has as its focus, both in the creation process and in the final result, the research of movement in relation to the object through improvisation and composition in present time. Its name is given by the accumulation of meanings of the word SOLO [ground]: - solo of dance – of the artist and of the object - walking stick - solo as ground, ground where we step and the ground on the ground where we step SOLOS is a word we call palindrome, which means that can be read from back to front staying the same. The creations of Estela Lapponi always start from autobiographical situations and in the case of SOLOS is not different, however, during the creation process, the artist found inspirations in art and concrete poetry. In this first experiment the artist created 2 concrete poems that play with the name and the object. The public is invited to enter and to leave the installation on time and as much as they want. It's a long lasting performance - 3h/day.
