Installation view at Reggia di Venaria Reale
With July 30 2007, 2016, the artists finally reflect on the nature of the artistic glance, once again telling a story in pictures. On the July 30, 2007, both Ingmar Bergman and Michelangelo Antonioni – two directors able to create and destroy worlds starting from the study of the moment and of the fragment, died. MASBEDO captures the glance of Bergman’s Summer with Monika (1956) – lingers on the audience, and on the shreds of the villa belonging to one of the main characters of Antonioni’s Zabrinskie Point (1970) – as it explodes into the air. These two instances overlap in a slow dance of fragments. Here again the main protagonists are after all the gestures, glances and moments interweaving men, machines and objects.
