THE WALL OF DELICACY (Ode to America) is a meditation practice, a reflection on boundaries and delicacy.
The practice is realized through simple and graceful gestures: the artist inserts, one after the other, rosebuds in a metal wire, paying attention not to damage them, and observing their petals that inevitably fall to the ground.
An installation that in aesthetics refers, overturning its meaning, to the barbed wire used at the borders between Countries.
Born as a site-specific installation during the artist’s residency at MASS MoCA, USA, it has turned into a traveling and participatory project; in May 2019 it took part in BienNolo, a biennial show of contemporary art curated by Artcity Lab, Matteo Bergamini, Carlo Vanoni.
From the 1st to the 6th of December, 12 to 7 pm, in Piazza Pretoria (or in the atrium of Palazzo Bonocore in case bad weather conditions), the artist invites citizens to take part in the meditation practice and in the realization of the work.
On the 7th of December, 8 am to 9 pm, THE WALL OF DELICACY will be installed in Piazza Pretoria, between the Fountain and Saint Catherine.
THE WALL OF DELICACY for BAM is curated by Laura Francesca Di Trapani and supported by The Secular Society, USA.
