Belgium, Nederland, Socìetas Raffaello Sanzio: On the concept of the face, regarding the son of God

Once again, Romeo Castellucci turns to an apical icon of the human history: Jesus, with whom the time too confronts itself in most of the world. Here the picture of Jesus starts from the Renaissance painting and particularly in the topic moment of the Ecce Homo.

In this precise instant, tradition states that Christ looks the spectator into the eyes, with a powerful effect of dramatic involvement in the questioning. In this calculated confusion of sights’ touching and crossing, the Face of God’s Son becomes the picture of the man, of a man or even of the very spectator. And so, in the performance, the sight of God becomes a sort of light illuminating a series of human actions which can be good, evil, disgusting or innocent. The performance doesn’t tell about Jesus, nor about the worship; it has no content of social condemnation and it doesn’t want to be easily provocative. At the same time, Romeo Castellucci keeps his distance from mysticism and debunking because, in the end, it’s just the picture of a man. A man who is exposed naked in front of other men; who, in turn, are exposed naked by that man.
