❝ I want to use the movement like words and the words like stones. IOVIODIO should be noisy. Constant noise, having no peace. No rest. The noise of being alive. ❞
IOVIODIO points the finger at the incapacity to take risks;
IOVIODIO is against the lack of courage to fight; to love; to make mistakes; to fail; to be different; and to think different; to live deeply and fully without being paralyzed by correctness and politeness.
IOVIODIO is against homogenized thoughts and emotions.
Beyond surrendering to conformism and normality, in art and life, there’s a whole open space for creation.
That’s why – with all the love we are capable of –
we invite you to come to us: come to think and feel, come to IOVIODIO.
