In the cover image of Multiplications N.1 appear two women faces, one glancing forward, the other closing her eyes, in transparency on a liquid texture, beneath it a naive drawing of an old bus or truck (taken from an Ex-Voto gallery) moving forward and fading toward a crossroad of railways. The image, even though clear in its ingredients, is completely unclear in its meaning: is it a scene of danger or relief, of intimacy or loneliness, memory or present, tragedy or saving....
Great to be in the highlight of Where Magazine Milan with Alma Mater ! www.almamater.info
"The must-visit multimedia art project by artist and composer Yuval Avital ends today in the huge Cathedral space of Fabbrica del Vapore. The project, entitled “Alma Mater”, includes a forest of 140 loudspeakers with the voices of grandmothers from all over the world singing lullabies and traditional songs intertwined with seismographic sounds of the earth.
Woven into the heart of the piece will be a new version of ‘Il Terzo Paradiso’ by renowned artist Michelangelo Pistoletto. Screenings of former La Scala étoiles Liliana Cosi and Oriella Dorella and a magical site-specific light design by Enzo Catellani enrich the work. The event will be further enhanced by performances by international and local artists, exhibitions and workshops."
From July 8th till August 29th 2015 Alma Mater, my next creation, in dialogue with Il Terzo Paradiso by Michelangelo Pistoletto, will fire up the Cattedrale building of #FabbricadelVapore in Milan. More on www.almamater.info
