Cancellazione di uno stato [Cancellation of the State] (1970)
This project series documents Pettena's performance "Cancellazione di uno stato". This performance, understood as a visual poem, is described in written instructions. The performance begins with two jets flying over an American state, each one takes off from opposite corners of a state and meet in the center, forming an 'X' over the state. The flights are meant to occur at the specific moment when the performance can be captured by a weather satellite. The images captured by the satellite would then be broadcasted on the weather forecast on national stations. Pettena used a similar idea for a proposal entitled "Imprisonment" for the Graz "Trigon '71" competition.
The project series contains the typescript instructions for the performance and a project description in English and in Italian.
