Yesterday opened two exhibitions which caught my eyes:
"a simple tour into complexity" by Gem Preiz is a tour into the tiniest pixels of a fractal artwork, celebrating the Principle of Correspondence. I asked him about it and he answered: " I didn't know this principle by itself. I guess this idea is present under different names in several philosophical theories or even in some sciences approaches.I am educated in science and now we know that the Universe is ruled by very few physical laws, and made of a very limited number of particles. So at any complexity level, everything identical is at work and probably also in the behavior of extremely complex individual, such as the ones we are, from a biological point of view. I have been very much interested by Henri Laborit works to explain how our emotions and behaviors are driven by chemical reactions in our body. Yes ... I am sensitive at this principle and in a sense and to a certain extent, I think their is a relation with my installation."
Kicca Igaly leaves in her installation "At World's End....." the meaning to the visitors. What we see is a man and a womwn at two sides of a water separated by thick fog that they almost can't see the other. He is waiting for a message for a message in a bottle from her. To me a touching allegory of long distance or virtual relationships.
Here another exhibition about unfulfilled desire. Giovanna Cerise about her installation: "SAUDADE is the longing for something beautiful that is finished. The two dancers are caught in the moment of their final tango. One couple that multiplies and that is isolated. The pleasure and sadness multiply endlessly, until the crashing." The bond stays strong.
"Saudade" by Giovanna Cerise open Nov. 1st at 1,30 PM SLT
The installation is in the 2nd floor.
