Her better known works include, Bottari, wedding bedspreads held together in bundles to make existential sculptures, capturing the everyday life of women and nostalgia for exile. Needle and fabric are the metaphoric elements that appear in the installation Needle Woman (1999-2001), presented at the last Venice Biennale.
In this new project (the second part of a programme carried out in collaboration with the Teatro La Fenice, promoted by the Fondazione Bevilacqua La Masa, curated by Francesca Pasini), light and colour create a purified abstraction. The film is silent, accompanied only by the sound work The Weaving Factory 5.1, the artist breathing in a rhythmic crescendo.
During the inauguration, the theatre will be open to the public with screenings on 27 January at 1700h and 19.30h and on 28 January at 11.00h and 13.30h. E.S.
