Gardens always have been considered as ideal places, recalling the symbology of pleasure and the harmonic relationship between humans and nature. While shaping those places, our longing for the beauty and the lush, the delight and the peaceful culminates especially in the nostalgic recall of the mythological Garden of Eden. At the same time gardens are also expressions of an utterly anthropocentric overmolding of nature. In Le Jardin two figures are wandering inside an imaginary landscape that is constantly transformed by their gestures. They rearrange their surrounding embarking on a trial of strength with themselves and the space.
Ginevra Panzetti and Enrico Ticconi, based in Berlin and Torino, are working as a duo since 2008. Their artisic research interlaces dance, performance and visual art. Both graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome and attended Stoà, School for rhythmic movement and philosophy in Cesena, led by Claudia Castellucci. In 2010 they moved to Germany and delved into individual, but mutually complementary paths: Ginevra studied Media Art at Hochschule für Grafik und Buchkunst (HGB) in Leipzig and Enrico Dance, Context, Choreography at Hochschulübergreifendes Zentrum Tanz (HZT) in Berlin. Aside from their projects, Enrico works as a dancer for choreographers such as Kat Válastur, Dewey Dell, Lea Moro and Adam Linder while Ginevra designs contemporary jewels under her own label “Tegumenti”.
