These past years, examples of Climate change have flourished through the world.
Whether you look North or South, East or West; winds, cyclones and storms are getting more and more violent. The 230 Km/hr winds that blew lately in the Philippines particularly caught my attention. Maybe the recent studies that prove the unexplainably high levels of aluminium particles in the atmosphere can depict a regrettable aspect of the problem?
Be as it may, these phenomena are now entering my sculptures, which are now directly connected to the climate, through THE DISC. What is THE DISC, might you ask. Well THE DISC is put in chaotic motion by an electro-magnetic field powered by solar energy. It is therefore in perpetual movement. But when the temperatures around the sculpture get higher than what they should be, the system stops, and a red diode on the disc starts to blink. In the same time, a red laser shoots up in the sky through the top of the opus. The sculpture therefore becomes a climate change alarm.
Italian art star Liana Zanfrisco received me in her studio in Rome, close to the Vatican, to discuss a possible collaboration for a Trans Nature Art Exhibition.
I met Cristina Cerminara and Liana Zanfrisco at Via Degli Ombrellari 53. I hope to organize an ecofeminist Trans Nature Art exhibition with both of these Italian artists, who expressed a real interest for the project.
I made the best of my time in Rome and went to the Museo Nazionale Delle Arti del XXI Secolo and the National Galery of Modern and Contemporary Art. For me, contemporary Italian artists are clearly at the avant garde of the worl artistic tendencies
Italian gastronomy (spaghetti, wine or Arte Povera), if not fashion, clearly justify spending time!
