DOM- is a research project born in 2013 from the collaboration of the Italian artists Leonardo Delogu and Valerio Sirna. It investigates the language of performing arts, contaminating it with the Environmental Humanities’ militant approach and the eco-anarcoqueers’ issues and imagination. Its practice revolves around the relation between bodies and landscapes, questioning the tangle of permeability, and observing how power, nature and marginality interact in the public space. It engages in the transmission of peculiar in-habiting practices, linked to the space and time of artistic creation and territorial planning. DOM- builds performances, workshops, walks, gardens, audio-visual projects, dj-sets and parties.
As part of the European NOW project, wpZimmer has provided Leonardo with support for a period of three years. In the course of this time he examined how he can give his work greater dramaturgical depth. His first research residency took place in December 2015.
