Altalena sulla luna
Vittorio Sgarbi talks about the artwork “Altalena sulla luna” (Swing on the moon) by Giacinto Bosco, giving his accurate interpretation and capturing its deepest essence.
The moon, in Alcamo, is not like elsewhere. Its light is different, it is closer and brighter. One feels as if one can touch it. And someone has. Someone has started to speak about love right from here.
Why are you there, Moon, in the sky? Tell me Why you are there, silent Moon?
One immediately understands that in this series of images there is a sort of Mission of Liberation: Giacinto Bosco announces that Utopia, through multiple moments of true poetry, can transmit its message to the heart of the observer.
Regarding the work of Giacinto Bosco, Paolo Levi writes: “The narration is of a disarming simplicity, without any rhetorical embellishment”. It is precisely in this way that I prefer to read Giacinto’s sculpted figures.
The Lunar Enigma of Isidore
How many ways round in circles to finally surprise the Moon. Or before getting there, in a journey towards the unknown. The Enigma by Isidore Ducasse is Man Ray’s photograph of a mass, a parcel, a sculpture.
