Invernomuto & Moira Ricci (IT)
Bissera, 2006/2007

film still

Bissera (or recovery ritual, from the dictionary of popular witchcraft) is the story of a family, seen through the eyes of a little girl, who discovers the true past through a series of meetings. The gestural dimension of popular magic, the panoramic loss and discovery of small tales through which manifest bizarre revelations, turning this work into a running tale between fiction and the language of documentary, with experimental interstices. The
meeting between Invernomuto and Moira Ricci - to whom the festival Netmage has also commissioned its corporate image for 2007 - is a welding of fictions from obsessions and the depths of the culture of human territory where Moira Ricci was born (the Grosseto area, its traditions and worlds) and Invernomuto’s representation of the anthropoid landscape. Netmage 07 production.


Invernomuto was formed in 2003 as a group for audiovisual experimentation from the union of Simone Bertuzzi and Simone Trabucchi, with the collaboration of Davide Barbieri for musical matters. With an accent on a mixture of languages, the group’s operations are manifested in productions such as the editorial project ffwd_mag, focused on the relations between image and sound, video production, live-media performances as well as curating events and special projects. Invernomuto participates in group exhibitions and festivals
such as Italian Live Media 04 (Rome, 2004), Domus Circular (Milan, 2005), Cinema Infinito/Never Ending Cinema (Trento, 2006) Whalesland, careof (Milan, 2006).

Moira Ricci studied at the R. Bauer School of Photography and at Accademia di Brera in Milan. She works with a variety of visual languages, including photography, video and installation. At the core of her work the figure is placed in relation to itself and others, forms of storytelling between biography and staring reportage. Her compositions fold the image toward the three-dimensionality of self-irony plays and environments that include her own body, often lost in proportion to the outside world. She has participated in solo and group exhibitions including Interfuit (Artopia, Milan, 2006), Poesia in forma di rosa (Galleria Civica Monfalcone, 2005), Photocells (IIC, London, 2005), Your Private Sky (F.I.S.Co., Bologna, 2004) and Youthquake (Lima, Milan 2003).


Wins the “Palinsesto Italia prize” partecipating with the project Risonanza
Magnetica Network. Palinsesto Italia is a national prize for innovative multimedia
and multiplatform publishing content and solutions, which take place
in Bologna, Italy, every year.

Productions - Publications

The project aims at proposing a non-linear survey on audio-visual arts. Characteristic of ffwd_mag are the constant mutability and the refusal to adopt any identifiable graphic format. This is why each issue has to be considered as a stand-alone project/concept.
