20th October – 4th November
Turno spell is an installation, performance and painting project that draws on the narrative of Stregheria (Italian witchcraft). Spell casting in Italian can be translated to ‘turno’ which means ‘to incur change’.
Turno spell is a part of Rosina Prestia’s MFA project series where the concept of change and the human’s capacity to incur change is the focus. Prestia’s approach is to work from a material standpoint to create minute bodily interventions that subtly extend the possibilities of the body.
Prestia invites the audience to change the words of a spell where they can change the colour of their eyes. The participants are invited to recite, mutter, mumble, whisper or think the spell they have changed in her installation.
