Caterina Barbieri & Ruben Spini
The audio-visual, site-specific piece “Aurora Wounds” created by composer Caterina Barbieri and multimedia artist Ruben Spini will celebrate its world premiere as part of “The New Infinity” 2020.
The channelling of a ghostly memory rips open the hemispherical dome of the planetarium as a bleeding scar in the space-time manifold. This haunting voice is a tale of vulnerability and catastrophy: the cold case of human condition and its opaque relationship with the rest of creation and its sublime, encrypted manifestations. Unresolved, icarian ecstasies are no evasion, but rather the ultimate witnessing of a decaying planet and its sick, exhausted dawns; a violent swansong seeking for a radical commitment and retuning of our placement in the cosmos.
