“Flighty matters” is a series of short films around
the politics of production of voice and strategies of active denial. The first video explores the ‘Farfallino’ language,
a coded version of Italian used by children to secretly communicate between each other. The second video reconstitutes the performance of Puccini’s aria
“Un bel dì vedremo” from the very problematic opera “Madama Butterfly” sung in the argot of ‘Farfallino’.
In the third video,”Harpy”, a woman loses her voice, nonetheless this mutism unravels the opportunity
for a different stage of existence. When language
is so much manufactured and problematically connoted, the refusal of direct communication opens up a possibility for autonomy.
