Marinella Senatore‘s second solo exhibition at ADN Galeria, titled Bodies in Alliance, serves as a showcase of the diversity in this artist’s production. By blending tradition and contemporaneity, she transforms the reality that surrounds the viewer.

Senatore is a multidisciplinary artist with an special interest on establishing temporary communities where people with common and diverse bonds come together. Simultaneously, as she contemplates the significance of connection and coexistence within these communities, Senatore crafts pieces utilizing diverse mediums such as paper, paint, fabrics and light. Her artworks frequently draw inspiration from dance, popular culture, music and activism.

The title of this exhibition is a phrase derived from a text by feminist philosopher Judith Butler. In this text, the author explains how the alliance among minorities or vulnerable bodies becomes a subversive act with transformative potential to respond to the precarious conditions of our time. Senatore takes these ideas and puts them into practice by fostering the creation of communities, providing them with a space for dialogue and encounters, without giving participants strict instructions. She carefully establishes the conditions for the meeting, but it is the participants who decide the script of the performance and the initial cultural framework.
