BILLION BALANCES. LGG$B solo show curated by IDIOLETTA

Talking about foot bathing with friends, we came to the conclusion that this strictly feminine practice of laying one’s feet into saltwater, comes from mermaids. Feet – the human equivalent of the fish’s tail – must reconcile with their original environment: saltwater, indeed.
Definitely odd, this theory was useful to me over time, to explain a series of phenomena that, otherwise, would have just appeared alien – inscrutable.

Loren, Gaia, Giulia, Sabrina and foot bathing are the example of how, through daily practices, one can have access to a recondite past and pass it on, how this process is driven by the necessity of founding a personal cosmology, a personal lineage that doesn’t have much to do with actual genealogy.
LGG$B are the daughters of the Kahina, of Tori Amos and Tony Montana.
Writing becomes constant, continuous (it isn’t reduced to the mere act of writing), it is a process in which all their work is involved, because this way, they tend to the construction of a parallel dimension.
This world in miniature, this network of affections, fits in their backpacks, in their bedrooms and even in an exhibition.
