Lupercyclopedia. Moving images and living archive
Ebook in formato Pdf leggibile su questi device:
On the 17th of June 2005, Peter Greenaway set about his first VJ performance. It was the beginning of a worldwide live cinema tour, but mostly, it was the beginning of what later would have become the Lupercyclopedia. Based on the Tulse Luper Suitcases1, the project consists of a living encyclopaedia conceived for the information era, characterized by the presence of particular figures, motifs, themes and a peculiar recurring symbology. This conveys the idea of an archive, which works as a database able to support and feed the contemporary “cinematic-scape”. In particular, the main hypothesis I will try to demonstrate is that this last work by Greenaway can be considered as the author’s own archive. Not by chance, Lupercyclopedia sounds obviously to be the encyclopaedia of Tulse Luper, who is Peter Greenaway’s alter ego. We are thus presented a live reinterpretation of Tulse Luper’s story, which is rendered through the combination of 92 characters, 92 settings in place, 92 global events, 92 individual stories, 92 natural elements, 92 symbolic objects and a final sequence, which is the result of the montage of 92 explosions sequences.
