Interview with Federico Esposito, Time travel (English)

Through my practice I give life to fantastic visions, enigmatic situations and  ever-changing identities. Deconstructing and recombining my own identity and gender, I free a multitude of characters: detectives, humanoids, fairies, jesters that become the uncanny protagonists of my works.

My narratives which originate as fictional are then actualised in reality through the organisation of live events, gatherings and prolonged impersonation of characters; one above all: my role at TLSB as private investigator and UPOs* specialist.

Joining and surpassing the limits between sculpture, performance, writing and fashion design, I found my way towards an open working methodology, one that is beyond a clear categorisation and that, in return, facilitates cooperation. In collaboration with artists, musicians and performers I create plural environments where different entities and identities enter into dialogue and connect with each other. 

During the live events, the participants are accompanied inside parallel realities by hybrid creatures and fantastical beings, finding themselves involved in intricate conundrums to solve, improbable banana duels and oracular manifestations. In these realms, it is vulnerability and insecurity that find space; while through the creative use of imagination, mechanisms of aggression and discrimination are ridiculed and weakened.

Fluidity and magic therefore become tools to provide alternatives to rigidity and to the normalisation of personality and sexuality, allowing us to change perspective on our daily relationships and to imagine new possible realities.

* UPOs = Unidentified Performing Objects, which together with the Reports on behalf of TLSB are the latest physical outcome of my long term experimentation in documenting and collecting performance.
