partecipative art / public art

Citofoni Rosa di Antonio Irre - progetto Green Squares 2

I am inviting people in my home town, Padova, to color their intercom in pink. Why? Because if an intercom is pink the person who answer is available for a little chat.

Pink intercoms are a participatory public art installation based on a simple mechanism:
Giving the opportunity for anyone who wants to have a word or anyone who wants to be heard to be able to ring the intercoms of residents who have made themselves available, becoming a relational device against solitude. Info here.

Is your neighborhood/city interested too? Write me!


public art / videoart

kore public art padova

Site- and community-specific artwork, a piece of Public Art. We are looking for new squares where to perform in a participatory style. Check our page.

PLANT STILLNESS (L’immobilità delle piante)

post-theatre performance


A Kekekokakekokekakokeké bird protects and takes care of the last tree on earth. A performer and a plant share a space for a limited time of the day.

A piece of Post-Theatre, where the actor enters and exits the character, or is the character getting brighter and turning off?

A deep, multisensorial experience for the participant: never-felt-before fragrances, videos, stillness, dance, improvised poetry, and scientific explanations are the ingredients of a public performative meeting conducted by the artist and researcher Antonio Irre. In cooperation with prof. Ninkovic (Ecology Center, SLU) and Barbara D’Altoé (Maison Rodé).

danese trittico.png

Using the same technique developed for “Parole Dentro”, portraits are done on vintage photographies, and then passed to another artist, who creates a work of art starting from both photo and portrait. A process of collaboration, that blooms in different ways, according to the poetic of each artist.

Works in cooperation with Paolo Danese, Federica Benegiamo, Chiara Coltro, Matteo Schiavon, Sara Zamperlin.

See the Full Catalog or watch the video of presentation.


surrealist performance

Nebulosa - Irre - ph Leandro Zampieri (16)

The action is inspired by the lithography «Nebulosa» By Joan Mirò, and by the text Arcane 17, by André Breton.

Starting from a white space, the night arrives, and the nebulosa is slowly built.

Readings by Jodorowski, Baudelaire, Majakowski, live drumming of an artisanal bell/ball, with heavenly sound.

A surrealist action, the infinite loneliness of the human being, and its delicate secrecy.

For indoor or outdoor spaces.

See the full video of the performance.
