A retrospective of some of the most important works created by the artist over the past four years. In the ex-church of Santa Chiara a new video shows the performance made by the artist during his workshop in Sansepolcro in June 2012. Filippo Berta’s performances explore the dynamics which trigger from the repetition of everyday gestures in public: actions start from the involvement of groups of people.

Filippo Berta (born 1977) lives and works in Bergamo. In 2008 he won the International Performance Prize at Galleria Civica in Trento. Between 2009 and 2012 he got two residences of creation (Fondazione Ratti in Como and Fondazione Spinola Banna in Poirino-Torino). He exhibited his works at the third Biennial Exhibition for Young Art in Moscow, at MADRE in Naples, at Centre of Contemporary Art in Thessaloniki and at the Biennial Exhibition of Prague.
