Antonio and Riccardo are a pair of artists who explore the human body, the political readings implicit in the erotic and the transgressive possibilities of pain and pleasure throughout their performances, during which reality and fiction are constantly intertwined and challenged.

Creative allies as well as lovers in life, the two have created a visual language that questions social convention, the paradigms of established norms, moral authority and the censoring mechanisms of power.

Their bodies are the ground on which Antonio and Riccardo create, and with them they express their challenge on conservative and stagnant views of art and beauty.

This conversation sees them express their views on their personal and professional experiences with a fascinating fluidity and intelligence. They reflect on the sometimes needless and inaccessible hermeticism of modern art, on monogamy, on gender stereotypes, on patriarchy, on the pros and cons of sharing a wardrobe and on the future of London as the capital of the European avant-garde.

Antonio and Riccardo are fabulous on their own, so imagine what they’re like when they get together for a high-voltage conversation. In fact, don’t imagine it: Carla brings them together in this edition of Metralla Rosa so we can all to be seduced by their irreverence.

And now, enjoy the interview!

Antonio e Riccardo sono un duo di artisti che esplorano con le proprie performance il corpo, le letture politiche implicite nel fatto erotico e le possibilità trasgressive del dolore e del piacere. Insieme producono degli scenari dove realtà e finzione si intrecciano e si sfidano costantemente.

Alleati nel creativo e amanti nella realtà, i due hanno creato un linguaggio visivo in cui mettono in discussione le convenzioni sociali, i paradigmi delle norme stabilite, l’autorità morale e i meccanismi di censura del potere.

Il corpo è il terreno da cui Antonio e Riccardo creano, e con cui si esprimono, sfidando ogni punto di vista conservatore e stagnante dell’arte e della bellezza.

In questa conversazione entrambi rivelano con affascinante fluidità e intelligenza il loro punto di vista sulle esperienze personali e professionali. Entrambi riflettono sull’inaccessibile e talvolta gratuito ermetismo dell’arte moderna, sulla monogamia, sugli stereotipi di genere, sul patriarcato, sui pro e i contro del condividere un guardaroba e sul futuro di Londra come capitale dell’avanguardia artistica europea.

Antonio e Riccardo sono favolosi presi singolarmente, riuscite a immaginare quanto lo siano insieme in una conversazione ad alto voltaggio? Non c’è bisogno di immaginarli: Carla ce li presenta in questa edizione di Metralla Rosa, per essere tutti sedotti dalla loro irriverenza.

E ora, godetevi l’intervista!

Antonio y Riccardo son un dúo de artistas que exploran con su obra performativa, el cuerpo, las lectura políticas implícitas en el hecho erotico y los posibilidades transgresoras del dolor y el placer. Ambos crean puestas en escena donde la realidad y la ficción se entrelazan y se desafían constantemente.

Aliados en la creación y amantes en la realidad, juntos han creado un lenguaje plástico con en el que cuestionan las convenciones sociales, los paradigmas de la normativa establecida, la autoridad moral y los mecanismos de censura del poder.

El cuerpo es el territorio desde el cual Antonio y Riccardo crean, y con el cual se expresan desafiando toda conservadora y anquilosada visión del arte y de la belleza.

En esta conversación ambos develan con fascinante fluidez e inteligencia sus puntos de vista acerca de sus experiencias personales y profesionales. Ambos reflexionan acerca del inaccesible y a veces gratuito hermetismo del arte moderno, la monogamia, los estereotipos de género, el patriarcado, los pro y los contras de compartir guardarropa, y el futuro de Londres como capital de la vanguardia artística europea.
