Allegory of Earth and Water
Silvia Cignoli, music
Salvatore Insana, video
In front of natural elements and their mysterious and changing power, we treat earth and water as precious enigmas of vision, able to transcend visible reality and push elsewhere, between the sublime and the imponderable. “Allegory of Earth and water” is an allegory of the natural elements, vital forms processors, with their changeable existence, their rebirth under new form, in a perpetual loop. Volatile and eternal atmospheres, where land and water are ideally interchangeable above and below of a hypothetical line of the horizon.
We think of the archive as a deposit, of signs left in space and traced over time. Time drawings stratified by the fate of men and other species.
