con.tatto (It), Simulacrum, 2: 30, 2016
A simulacrum is a representation or imitation of a person or thing. In contemporary society we virtually build images of ourselves to relate to others and to the world. An image that doesn't really need to to be truthful but only truth like.
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.
