(Finding comfort in the metaphysical during times of great distress)
It could be part of a temple, half of a church, or a place/time in which to suspend everything and one’s self in the name of a ritual yet to be invented. The space gathers forms and symbols: stairs to ascend without a mooring; thresholds to be crossed, with emphasis on a possible transformation; surreal, haptic objects to be caressed with the eyes and the hands; boulders like talismans; stones like mirrors.
The installation is completely contained within a triangle (magical geometry par excellence) charged with signs, alive thanks to those who will cross its thresholds, who will activate it by inhabiting it: some, but not all, equipped with a certain inclination to the mystical and to ritual…
