contextualising my sitiuation…

Just to give a idea of the background of the Fonadazione Pistoletto where i spend so much of my time…here is Michelangelo Pistoletto, showing UNIDEE around some of his works dating from the late ’50’s till the present day…

He explained how the mirror works evolved from early self portrait paintings…FYI the mirror paintings are very numerous and MP is always producing new ones. He tends to use people in and around the foundation as subjects…am still waiting to be asked!!!…

…the division and multiplication of mirrors…

Venere degli stracci” (Venus of Rags)

Explaining the the thought process that led from Leonardo’s Vitruvian Man to the creation of the Segno Arte (Art Sign)…

stop motion of rotazione dei corpi:

At night we were invited to dinner by Michelangelo and Maria. At first i was a little disappointed because they chose to have it in our workspace and we are already here ALL the time!!!! However i was wrong, sharing food has such transformational powers, having dinner around a huge table (there were 25 of us) can really change the atmosphere of place, it was truly a social and happy occasion. Maria (MP’s) wife did the cooking, and she is great, having lived in the middle east for a few years and also having travelled extensively, her food is always abundant, adventurous and REALLY good. For example among the many dishes, we had Serbian meatballs, Iranian style rice, hummus…you get the picture…
