Venue: Hansakortteli, Yliopistonkatu 20, 20100 Turku
Several different venues and times, more information:

The performance takes place in a public space, no pre-bookings.

The performance Rewinding proposes to turn shop windows in the city center of Turku into living dioramas, generating capsules inside them where time can be manipulated, and passersby may observe how people and bodies re-signify spaces. The work proposes a sort of coral situation, playing with similarities and differences, sustained over time and space as an invisible connection between participants.

Diego Bianchi was born in 1969 in Buenos Aires, Argentina, where he still lives and works. Bianchi’s practice proposes an apotheosis of everyday situations, such as the derailment of human excess and the anarchic order that follows. Bianchi’s work includes eclectic sculptures and installations, often utilizing elements of performance, which address both aesthetic standards as well as socio-political/-economic issues. One focus of Bianchi’s work is the relationship between human bodies and objects, between desires and devices. His pieces are constructed with visually transgressive materials that range from discarded objects to casts of body-parts.

Among other grants and awards, Bianchi was awarded the Fondo national de las Artes contest and Azcuy/Museum de Arte Moderno Prize, in 2019. His recent exhibitions include Táctica Sintáctica, Museum Centro de Arte Dos de Mayo, Madrid, Spain, 2022 and Marres House of Contemporary Culture, Maastricht, Netherlands, 2023; Inflation, 11th Liverpool Biennial, Liverpool, UK, 2021 and Bienal de Performance 2021 (B.P.21), Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes (MNBA), Buenos Aires, Argentina, 2021; Sauvetage Sauvage, Galerie Jocelyn Wolff, Romainville, France, 2020.  He has given numerous seminars and workshops for artists since 2009. He named his workshops “Anti-proyect” as a proposal to explore the present.
