Sacrosanctum 9

April, 19 - May, 16 2018

Friday, April 19 at 19:00 opens the work of Luigi Presicce for SACROSANCTUM.9 (oratory of San Mercurio, Palermo).
His work, influenced more by independent studies than by his academic training, orbits a performative action with a strong theatrical emphasis that stages a heterodox ritual close to the esoteric and occult dimension.
For Sacrosanctum, Presicce has assumed the role of San Mercurio di Caesarea, a holy warrior who held the oratory, being beheaded in Cappadocia because he converted to Christianity. San Mercurio corresponds to the transfiguration of the god Hermes and the same oratory, however, rises in the '500 in correspondence of a cave dedicated to this pagan deity. The review, now in its second edition, is organized and coordinated by the Association of Friends of Sicilian Museums and curated by Adalberto Abbate and Maria Luisa Montaperto.
