The Fargions

The Fargions are a recently formed duo made up of artists, Francesca and Giacomo Fargion. As a duo, the combine aspects of their distinct practices and are interested in exploring creative methods in collaboration. Together, The Fargions combine aspects of experimental song-writing, humorous texts and electronics to creat unusual, playful compositions. As described in Prxludes Magazine, the emanate a 'childlike charm performing together.' Their first larger scale project is 'Songs From A Warm Kitchen' (2020), a project comprised of short pieces that were created daily and sent back and forth between one another, each being a respopnse to the last. Further into the project, they invited other artists to contribute. Some contributing artists include: Tim Parkinson, Angharad Davies (composers/musicians),  Jonathan Burrows (dancer/choreographer) and Oriele Steiner (visual artist). In April 2022, they curated an event of experimental performance, 'Good Company'. Fully sold-out with over 150 ticket sales, it was a hugely successful event and they envisage it growing into a regular series. 

 

Leo Chadburn: “A big highlight of last night was the set by The Fargions: mordant, dry as a bone deadpan little gems of songs with electronics, so hilarious and truthful and wise. Young heirs to Ivor Cutler.
