Artworks: Perché non sognar (Il camino della speranza)
Kloster St. Lambrecht, Austria 2005
The basis of the sound installation in the church of the St. Lambrecht monastery is a recording of children playing the so-called 'temple-game' where children are hopping along a grid outlined on the ground following a thrown stone.
This refers to an experience at a Pentacostal mass in the Florence Dome. While the priests were saying the mass in the circular altar children were playing a hopping game, without being disturbed and in return not disturbing anyone. The sacred and the profane knew about their position in the space and the minds of all attending, a very special moment.
This installation is a memory and hommage to this experience as well as a reluctant intrusion and offer.
