Entelechy is the Aristotelian term used to indicate the inner purpose inherent in every being or reality, a kind of state of perfection of something that has achieved the purpose for which it was predisposed. An eternal and ideal principle, entelechy is in a constant dialectical relationship with the material conditions, bodies and worlds, that confront it.


APOTROPIA is an artist duo formed by Antonella Mignone and Cristiano Panepuccia. They work across video, dance, performance, sound and installation and explore the philosophical, anthropological and scientific elements of human culture.
