Super is a concept of a performance pondering over the metamorphosis of sensibility that doesn’t originate anymore from an intimate, innermost movement.
Super uses our body as a battle-field. A body put to flight, caught in the extreme tension of the changing process, an entity that is now field of forces pre-announcing the appearance of another language and drawing the map of an all developing intensity on a fleshy surface.
The present appears to be wrapped up in an obsession for the body; empty bodies, lifted bodies, anaesthetised bodies, re-shaped bodies, interfaced bodies, prothesized bodies, in every meaning and direction.
Therefore it becomes important to catch the metamorphosis that changes the body into a residual material, whose “manners of feeling” collapse dizzily and don’t allow the language to pass through them, to make its being communicable to the world. What is offered as representation of the modified sensibility of the modern world is a geography of bodies.
Abandoned to ourselves, we are the territory of “continuous performance”, always subject to mutations, unable to accept the nothingness that is pestering us all around.
Every kind of metamorphosis presupposes then an “otherwise feeling”, a shedding of our skins.
The body, as non-returnable object, reveals to be a precious resource to recycling. Recycling the body and the landscape as well, in a sort of transmutation of the flesh of the world opening up to new powers of perception.
