An artist’s conduct in relation to work:
An artist should avoid going to the studio every day
An artist should not treat his work schedule as a bank employee does
An artist should explore life and work only when an idea comes to him in a dream or during the day as a vision that arises as a surprise
An artist should not repeat himself

5. POSSESSION
An artist’s possessions:
Buddhist monks advise that it is best to have nine possessions in their life:
1 robe for the summer
1 robe for the winter
1 pair of shoes
1 begging bowl for food
1 mosquito net
1 prayer book
1 umbrella
1 mat to sleep on
1 pair of glasses if needed
An artist should decide for himself the minimum personal possessions they should have
An artist should have more and more of less and less
An artist should have more and more of less and less
An artist should have more and more of less and less

“An artist’s life manifesto” nasce in seguito alla partecipazione di un ensemble capitanato dalla cantante Valentina Fin ai “Laboratori permanenti di ricerca musicale”, uno percorso di ricerca artistica e musicale tenuto dal pianista Stefano Battaglia.
Grazie e insieme alla guida del maestro, l’ensemble ha lavorato per tutto il 2021 sui testi dell’opera “An artist’s life manifesto”, un’opera concettuale appunto della performer serba Marina Abramovic, costituita da 18 aforismi legati all’idea che la performer stessa ha della condotta ideale di una vita artistica.
Sulla base di una grammatica sviluppata dal maestro Battaglia, l’ensemble ha dapprima lavorato su tutti i 18 aforismi creando delle composizioni musicali, per poi selezionarne alcune che sono state registrate al fine di dare al progetto una forma disco e concerto.
