AnimaeNoctis is a duo (Silvia Marcantoni Taddei & Massimo Sannelli). It is a polymorphous Factory & a multimedial agency.
AnimaeNoctis has some keywords to deal with: antispecism, nonbinary/dappled identity, amuseable avantgarde.
We think that being multidisciplinary beings is the ability to survive and escape the night of the souls we use as our dual name. We are musicians, filmmakers, photographers, models, performers and 3D items makers.
What we don't use: expensive technological devices and softwares and bodies different from our own ones. What we use: garbage, free programs, common instruments and our own bodies. Both in our 3D works and as cinematic elements we tipically use twines or ropes, metal pieces taken from abandoned houses, soil, ancient objects, glasses and wood. Last but not least, plushes.
Every material is a piece of our story: metal is resistance and the capability of aggregating in new shapes; the glass is fragility that must stay unbroken; the mirror is a duplication of the body and pays homage to the quantum physics principle "observation affects reality". Plushes are the necessary tenderness. The ropes are the sewing that keeps our stuff together: Silvia's ancestors were sailors and Massimo's ones were tailors.
Our titles have a lot of puns in them. These puns are not just games. We think that language does not have a single direction and a precise law: it’s a series of sounds – yes, music too – which aggregates other sounds.
We believe that fun can be engaged, and nakedness is political as pleasure.
We live like this.
