The exhibition

To show the splendors of the sky, night falls on the Earth and in a small refuge that other light is turned on, which serves as a support for the eyes in the darkest hours. Far from there, the edges blur and the darkness surprises us. It forces us to recognize our limited capabilities and to go further, we must begin to fluctuate.

We rise freeing ourselves from the most ancient weapon, that need for light as a resource of control and power over the environment. Already in the early hours of dawn, we realize that we are now only clouds. 

We caress the stone and forge new alliances between non-organic lives with it. We savor this little spell, until it breaks: broad daylight illuminates our lost companions, we join them and we are little lives on the ridge of the mountain.

Effimero, [notes on the installation] by Camilla Carè
