APPARATUS a project by Azzurra De Gregorio
Most vocabularies agree in the definition of the word apparatus which can therefore indicate:
1 the technical equipment or machinery needed for a particular activity or purpose;
2 the complex structure of a particular organization or system.
In this specific context the same word is used to give a title to an investigation about the way how institutions build and represent their power using symbols, objects, gestures, rituals and especially bodies.
This research is indeed a reflection upon the apparatus that authorities (medical, military, judicial and religious) use in order to represent and to embody themselves trough codified processes and procedures.
It is also a physical and conceptual research on the mechanisms that guide social life and human interactions.
