Giuditta R. presents Vanessa's Room in Sicily
04 oct 2016 by art:i:curate team
Giuditta R. presents 50 drawings, a video and sound installation at the Palacultura Antonello in Messina.
The exhibition entitled Vanessa's Room is related to the continuous regeneration of the butterfly. Coming into the world in the form of a caterpillar, its natural metamorphosis is symbolical of rebirth or a spiritual transformation to a higher state of perfection. This concept profoundly affects human beings, who are encouraged to reflect on their own spiritual transformation towards a wider “being”. Vanessa’s Room is a dimension within the human consciousness, a place where deep psychological features remain mysterious.
Giuditta's artistic practice functions like human unconscious excavations, psychosomatic investigations where the anatomy, physiognomy, and facial expressions are presented in a varied world of trauma, vices, tensions and tender impulses.
