SonicMandalais an alchemical approach to sound stimulating the vision through resonance by esaphonics: a technique developed by Marco Guglielmi to create a sonic bubble inside which the vision is generated.
Phase I of SonicMandala is performed for the first time in Rome in 2013 at the Contemporary Dance Center Duncan 3.0.
In 2014 Phase II comes in a double location: both 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.
In 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 is performed in the Factory of MACRO (Museum of Contemporary Arts) in Rome on June 2-3.
In 2017 Marco creates “ComPUSter“, a set of six sculptures based on informal art/minimal art experimental language. 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.
“DeComPUSter” (the first one) was shown on February 2017 at Fondamenta, within the prestigious international magazine Inside Art. Then it moves in 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 is part of Artbox Project at “Luminator” (Jean Tinguely) Platform inside the EuroAirport during Basel Art Week 2017.
The exhibition of the full set of ComPUSters is in Italy on June 2-3 at the Factory of MACRO (Museum of Contemporary Art) under the Patronage of the City of Rome.
DeComPUSter and “Calcoli improbabili” are also 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. ComPUSters are in Berlin for Still Leben by InArte Werkkunst from 23 June to 15 July, and then again in Venice for Biennale 2017 with GaleriaZero from 16 to 20 July.
DeComPUSters is also in the XI Biennial of Florence at Fortezza da Basso. It is the 5th. Award Winner for the category Installation.
