This essay aims to investigate the original experience of the performative nexus between words / images and vocalism / music, which characterizes the work of the actress Gabriella Bartolomei. Her performances are striking evidence of the diffusion of Neo-Avant-Garde artistic experiments, even outside a clear belonging to specific cultural movement. Indeed, Bartolomei performs texts of other authors through a system of iconic rewriting (‘scritture vocali’), which is very similar to the experiences of visual poetry because she uses the same techniques of drawing, painting, and collages. In both cases, the iconic arrangement of the graphic and alphanumeric signs has a hermeneutical, mnemonic, and creative purpose. Only after having iconically translated the text to be interpreted is Bartolomei able to make a vocal performance.

Abstract

This essay aims to investigate the original experience of the performative nexus between words / images and vocalism / music, which characterizes the work of the actress Gabriella Bartolomei. Her performances are striking evidence of the diffusion of Neo-Avant-Garde artistic experiments, even outside a clear belonging to specific cultural movement. Indeed, Bartolomei performs texts of other authors through a system of iconic rewriting (‘scritture vocali’), which is very similar to the experiences of visual poetry because she uses the same techniques of drawing, painting, and collages. In both cases, the iconic arrangement of the graphic and alphanumeric signs has a hermeneutical, mnemonic, and creative purpose. Only after having iconically translated the text to be interpreted is Bartolomei able to make a vocal performance.
