EM.I.LI.O.-V.AVA.REL.L.A. (EMInente Ironica LIibera Organizzazione Vera AVAnguardia RELazionale Laboratorio Artistico) is the name of an experiment: a virtual entity inhabited by the souls of many people. For twelve months (01/01/2010-01/01/2011), I stopped producing as a single artist and created a platform with my name for aggregation, first virtually, then with exhibitions and projects in various European cities. The experience and the three works that ensued began by investigating the power of aggregation, cooperation, self-promotion, alternative economy and power relations within a group.
