Letizia Cariello – Opera per archi
27 October 2016 – 28 November
LAC Lugano Arte e Cultura,Piazza Bernardino Luini 6, CH – 6901 Lugano
The installation created by Letizia Cariello has two violoncello damaged, one sounding board and two unusable arches: objects without their nature, to create sound, to give harmony.
The artist collects and reassembles the different pieces in a work to which It gives a new sound, produced by the movement of Saturn’s rings and the Sun in their eternal rotation. The sound recorded in space, spreads whenever the violoncellos, drawing an arc of a circle, back to their point starting. The dimension of time takes shape through the large steel disc, a symbol dear to her, consisting of a long sequence of numbers and letters, the result of an exercise in western meditation.
Letizia Cariello lives and works in Milan, where he teaches Artistic Anatomy at the Academy of Fine Arts of Brera.
