Istituto Svizzero is pleased to present « Cronache di quel tempo », first solo exhibition in Palermo by artist duo Maria Iorio / Raphaël Cuomo.

Maria Iorio / Raphaël Cuomo are an artist duo based in Geneva and Berlin. Favoring a collaborative approach and long-term development, the duo’s artistic projects trace different past and present mobility regimes and manifest the intertwined histories of these movements. Their recent films focus on the conditions under which narratives can emerge and be translated. They shift attention to the voice and to listening by questioning the hierarchy between semantics and voice, or they emphasize the haunting nature of cinema and its power to reanimate. Their work integrates a curatorial dimension and revisits a larger field of moving image practices and “minor” cinema – amateur, feminist, decolonial. Their work has been presented on the occasion of the 16th Quadrennial (Rome); The Parliament of Bodies (Documenta 14, Athens); Chewing the Scenery (54th Venice Biennale); and The Maghreb Connection.
