The performance "Opacity" interrogates a series of representations of the body that tend to flatten out the cultures of difference, determining a fixed, extensive and universalistic character of the concept of identity itself and orienting any real possibility of knowledge with imaginative oppression. Starting from an investigation into the dichotomies of culture, transparency, opacity, light, darkness, progress backward, the evoked Opacity arises precisely from the shift of meaning between the neurotic need for definitions and the overcoming of stable, unitary and controllable in a "transparent" manner.

Through OPACITY#4 Salvo Lombardo deconstructs assumptions to critique the n otion of the West as origin of signification.
