Un Freddo Giorno Invernale…

a Ferrara, nei primi giorni di Dicembre 2010. Era freddo, ma visitare i luoghi particolarissimi della citta’ ha reso l’atmosfera piu’ “tiepida”, addolcita dagli zuccheri profumati e colorati del Natale oramai vicino. Pina Baush, inoltre, anche se solo in foto, riempie ogni spazio! E’ stata una giornata gradevolissima e la ricordo percio’ con piacere…

Pietre Piatte.

Scie solari aranciate,
mattino appena nato,
riflettono
pietre lastricate piatte,
modellate da passi di genti
ricurve
da silenziosa storia millenaria;
chiaroscuri mantelli
ondeggiano fruscianti
verso umose terre autunnali
rivoltate – callose mani – al sole
accolgono vita.

A Londra Henry MOORE, alla Tate… WOW

Quasi quasi ci faccio un salto!!!!! 🙂
Amo Londra alla follia tanto quanto Henry Moore… perché non fare una pazzia? 😉

Henry Moore

Tate Britain 24 February – 8 August 2010
About the exhibition

Radical, experimental and avant-garde, Henry Moore (1898–1986) was one of Britain’s greatest artists. This stunning exhibition takes a fresh look at his work and legacy, presenting over 150 stone sculptures, wood carvings, bronzes and drawings.

Moore rebelled against his teachers’ traditional views of sculpture, instead taking inspiration from non-Western works he saw in museums. He pioneered carving directly from materials, evolving his signature abstract forms derived from the human body. This exhibition presents examples of the defining subjects of his work, such as the reclining figure, mother and child, abstract compositions and drawings of wartime London. The works are situated in the turbulent ebb and flow of twentieth-century history, sometimes uncovering a dark and erotically charged dimension that makes us look at them in a new light. The trauma of war, the advent of psychoanalysis, new ideas of sexuality, primitive art and surrealism all had an influence on Moore’s work.

Highlights of the show include a group of key reclining figures carved in Elm, which illustrate the development of this key image over his career. Moore was an Official War Artist and his drawings of huddled Londoners sheltering from the onslaught of the Blitz captured the popular imagination, winning him a place in the hearts of the public. Don’t miss this fantastic opportunity to truly understand this artist’s much-loved work / Britain’s most successful sculptor.

Visit Henry Moore’s sculpture studios, home and gardens at Perry Green, Hertfordshire, and the Henry Moore Institute in Leeds. Both are part of The Henry Moore Foundation, set up by the artist in 1977.

La Luna Nel Lago

Cozzano,
l’un l’altra contro
mura:
di indifferenza, di egoismo.

Circuiti in corto.

Corpo a corpo,
delirio d’emozioni,
infrange
sodali tolleranti promesse.

La linea retta involve: è cerchio.

Orgogli e demagogie
presunzione
religioni, frustrazioni
schiacciano
parvenze d’umanità.

Costretta
in questa vita
– di plastica –
nel corpo dilaniato
non da sofferenza,
ma da forzata cura,
ma da ignorante indifferenza.

M’intrido delle miserie umane,
finalmente rispettata poi
– lacero il legame –
libera di vagare.
