Enfance, 2015

Giulio Lacchini, Giancarlo Norese

Enfance, by Giulio Lacchini and Giancarlo Norese, Sputnik Editions, Bratislava 2015
A double artist’s book about childhood

Enfance was born to remember us the faculty of “bringing visions into focus with our eyes shut”, as we did in a remote time, still fruitful and alive, when thinking in terms of images was more spontaneous.

It was a “possible pedagogy of the imagination that would accustom us to control our own inner vision without suffocating it or letting it fall (…) into confused, ephemeral daydreams, but would enable the images to crystallize into a well-defined, memorable, and self-sufficient form, the icastic form.”
(Excerpts from Italo Calvino, Six Memos for the Next Millennium: Visibility, 1985–1986).

Enfance, by Giulio Lacchini and Giancarlo Norese, Sputnik Editions, Bratislava 2015
Un doppio libro sull’infanzia

Enfance è nato per mettere a fuoco “visioni a occhi chiusi” da un periodo passato, ancora vivo e fecondo, quando pensare per immagini era più spontaneo.

È stata, per noi, una possibilità pedagogica dell’immaginazione, abituando “la nostra visione interiore a muoversi senza essere soffocata e senza lasciarla cadere in un confuso fantasticare, permettendo che le immagini si cristallizzassero in forme definite, autosufficienti e icastiche.”
(Tratto liberamente da Italo Calvino, Visibilità, Lezioni americane, 1985/1986).

Besides, it’s always the others who die, 2014

Emilio Fantin, Luigi Negro, Giancarlo Norese, Cesare Pietroiusti, Luigi Presicce (eds.), Besides, it’s always the others who die

This book, whose title is the epitaph on Marcel Duchamp’s tombstone, is one of several initiatives that we have developed around the theme of death, starting from “The Celebration of the Living (who reflect upon death).”

We have proposed turning the traditional November 2nd celebration, the “Day of the Dead,” into a new holiday. For the first edition of this celebration, in 2010, we invited those who were interested to be part of a pilgrimage, probably the shortest and slowest in the world, that departed from its destination (rather than arriving at it): Lu Cafausu in San Cesario di Lecce.

Lu Cafausu is a mysterious small building, an architectural remnant that we have elected as a source of metaphors and narratives. It is “an imaginary place that really exists.” It taught us that coincidences are meaningless if taken as mere coincidences: only when you are aware of connections can you become free to open yourself to their mystery, to their truth, or, rather, to their multiple, inextricable, and fragile truths. And then, after all, as it happens, it’s always us who die.

Including contributions by Emilio Fantin, Luigi Negro, Giancarlo Norese, Cesare Pietroiusti, Luigi Presicce, Sara Alberani, Lisa Batacchi, Marco Benincasa, Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev, Sarah Ciracì, Irene Coppola, Gianluca Marinelli, Luca Musacchio, Caterina Pecchioli, Mattia Pellegrini, Davide Ricco, Roberto Tenace, Ayreen Anastas, Rene Gabri, Stefan Banz, Francesca Marianna, Adrian Paci, Antonella Rizzo, Giorgio Rizzo, Franco Vaccari, Francesco Lauretta, and anonymous friends.
