During the Manifesta Biennale Hutchinson will present Abeng, an oeuvre in three acts based on sound. Titled after one of his poems from the Far District collection published in 2010, it refers to the sound made by abeng, a cow horn, blown by Maroons. In this work, he interprets ozio as a form of protest against power and the manufactured time of the masters, resonating with writings of Sicilian authors such as Federico de Roberto, Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa, Vitaliano Brancati and Leonardo Sciascia.http://griotmag.com/en/ishion-hutchinson-ozio-manifesta-biennial-palermo/ Image: Ishion Hutschinson at the American Academy in Rome (c) Marco Brunelli/Johanne Affricot
