(1) How long have you been making installations?
Automatic derivation from my action, art behaviour, performances in the area painting.
Adventure in transfer with the instruments and memory of "making" paintings.
In my works I try to free the bleeding canvas and frame from the nails, take care with gauze and cotton.
For me installation is out of the academic disciplines, in a total freedom of expression.
By any form or dimension in dialectic relation to reach a creative stimulus.
There are no limitations in the phenomenon installation, it is strictly in relationship with space, time, form, light, sound.
I am for the maximum freedom of working with conceptual ideas and materials.
The installation of my work is possible in very little gallery-space, in museum-space, in any urban space or in the forest.
In the last "Perfomedia Festival" in Venice - June 1997 - residents protested against the temporary installation of pieces of animal meat hanging on a rope across the canal. (Installation by Bruno Pistorio.)
I make installation in any type of environment if it corresponds to my communicative necessities, also at request.
This is a big problem for me - sometime it remains in site in the gallery for the collection, sometime I dismantle and pack it and preserve in my studio.
It isn't possible for me to give or estimate the value of an installation because it cannot be reduced at a selection of objects put into a place, but this is a "special event" with a past and future or simply the emotion of one instant.
Usually my installations
stay in package in my archive or stay in site with only copyright of the video-photo
