Eleonora Deligio’s video entitled Amacangia is inspired by the monumental landscape of Calanchi, in south-eastern Lucania, rough terrain and arid white dunes devoid of vegetation become a symbol of the artist’s origin. The territory in this area is rich in white clay and sand, its geomorphological conformation means that the nature of the soil is not as solid or as rocky as one might imagine, on the contrary, the soil soft, it breaks and crumbles between one’s fingers when touched. Leaving and returning, whirling in the air, getting lost and settling momentarily like dust, then settling a little and starting again to repeat the same journey, its destination; distance, in a trajectory that is always new, accompanied by a new gaze, nurtured by distance. Due corpi, un setaccio, due voci. Il gesto ritorna. La voce, la parola, la bocca è uno strumento. Il luogo delle radici dà il tempo ai corpi. L’ incontro con una parte remota e volontariamente cancellata. Una litania scritta come un flusso di coscienza, un invito alla riflessione sul cambiamento, uno tra tutti, il ritorno nella mia terra. La riscoperta. Il ritorno
