I Santi Abbandonati

Artist statement

I santi abbandonati (The abandoned saints), is a piece of work that I did in an art festival entitled “Ad ognuno la sua parte IV”, of which it was organised by tadlachance. This piece of work is a site-specific installation in a small uphill village named Villatalla in Liguria, Italy.

This work is constructed in the form of altar, with a small symbolic “bible” that contained 80 words that are all about our existence and inner feelings like emotion, contradiction, desire, difficulty… etc., the work is accomplished with a muffled voice that sounds like praying.

 

I want to arouse the awareness of our inner feelings, of which they are somehow the saints that we might have forgotten, ignored or even abandoned.
