TBOE looks at energy, physical and cultural energy.
It develops moving between places where energy is produced and places where cultural energy is diffused, between museums and power plants.
It started on October 3, 2014 at Bergen Kunsthall / Landmark, Bergen (NO) and already acted and was presented by many European museums arriving till the borders of Europe in Kirkenes at Barents Spektakel (NO) and in Gibraltar at Listen to the Sirens (UK), and stopping also at MAGA Museum in Gallarate (IT); Dolomiti Contemporanee & Progetto Borca (IT); Museum Folkwang in Essen; the art-lovers-iniziative One in Ghent (BE); in Paris, supported by the IIC-Institut culturel italien de Paris.

Energy is a fundamental part of our lives in every moment and in every place: as much important, vital, present, as at the same time invisible, immaterial, intangible. The term 'energy', already used by Aristotle in philosophy, begins to take shape in physics in 1619 Kepler's Harmonice Mundi.
The project THE BODY OF ENERGY (of the mind) shows what is not visible to eyes. It gives shape to energy.

For doing this, the artist started a 6 months expedition through different nations of Europe 'scanning the new energies'. Capturing traces of energy, jets of energy, actions of energy, shot also by an infrared camera, used as symbolic energy keeper. Means of transport is a mobile station, a van identified by evident writings that interact constantly with the local environment.

A book will be realized by Revolver Publishing, Berlin (ISBN 978-3-95763-271-5) and the launch will happen in Venice in the first week of May.

THE BODY OF ENERGY is realized with the support of RWE Stiftung für Energie und Gesellschaft gGmbH as Stefano Cagol is recipient of its VISIT #10 artist in residence programme.
