Art project realized under the invitation of the festival ON. Luci di Pubblica Piazza” during the Bologna Art Fair.
Weaned is a public art intervention commissioned by ON.Luci di Pubblica Piazza, and focusing on the perception of time through personal experiences. It arises from the need to unveil the connection between the awareness of the life cycle in the relationship with the place we live. A narrative project made of pictures and words, dedicated to Piazza Verdi. “Weaned” is the result of an investigation conducted during a series of nights spent in the square, in the town archives, in the libraries, in the town documentation centres, looking for tales and visions from both past and present, in order to generate a rumour. Different images of the same place are projected under the arcades flanking the streets that end in Piazza Verdi. At once, the square and the eyes that depicted it shift in time. Light displays are also reproduced, containing pieces of conversations held between the artist and the passers-by. The work was introduced by the workshop “Palestra d’arte pubblica”.
