“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 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.
