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 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.

Si Antonio y Riccardo son fabulosos por separado, los imaginas reunidos en una conversación de alto voltaje?...for further information about this interview, including links to anything mentioned by Antonio & Riccardo, or to continue reading this text in Spanish, English or Italian, visit the Metralla Rosa website.
