Little has been written and debated about the loss of centrality of the body since the noughties. That the body was central was well understood – for example – by the performers and body artists who in the Seventies made that presence a virtuous exercise, able to push the body itself to cross its limits – arriving at impersistence, to what is definable as “the void”. Previously, artists such as Carol Rama (Turin, 1918-2015) had already made the exploration of the limits of the body a constant of their research. Through a multifaceted vocation that escapes from the pictorial into installation, the dismemberment of the body in the works of Carol Rama borders on the tangible search for the metamorphic value that the body assumes when it is forced to exceed its conceptual limits, becoming something else, taking root in viscerality.
