Teatro della Luna – Polverigi
CLAUDIA CATARZI – POSARE IL TEMPO
The work stems from an imagined condition. It is a declination of the vision, sometimes an attempt to simultaneity of times and speaces.
What you cannot have in nature and science is a strong attraction for those who like to handle usefuls tools for the abusrd, for the exeptional.
The raw materials are two bodies, two ordinary elements, two people, two portraits, two sculptural entities, two fragments,two and sometimes a single one. Like clay in the hands of a sculptor, the two bodies are at the service of the experiment, of staying and remaining and posing, of transformation.
We pose to be looked at, and we pose our weight. Inevitably we are subject to the physical laws of gravity and mysteriously we speak without words with our bodies, telling inaudible stories.
Posare il tempo invietes viewers to leave aside their insatiable need to understand.
