by Romina de Novellis
In echoing his exhibition The Orpheus Suitcase, the Museum invites the artist and Italian researcher Romina from Novellis for an unprecedented performance that renews our gaze on the myth of Eurydice and on the Mediterranean traditions associated with it.

The Figure of Eurydice, that a snake bite dedicated to hell, rubs shoulders in the Mediterranean imagination of multiple avatars of women's hysterical contortion by the action of a snake or tarantula stitch. In the latter case, tartensism, rite of popular healing of the south of Italy mixing magical practices, Christianity and Catharsis musical, entrusts the men of the village the power to heal the wounded. Faithful to its ecofeminal approach and the upsetting poetry of its performance, Romina de Novellis replaces the male figure. Inspired by the cadence of the Tarantelle, it provides a patient attempt to care and rebirth that it chooses to apply as much to the animals as their victims.
