"C'era: 19 candles, 1 sculpture by Domenico Olivero"
2001-06-23 until 2001-06-23
Saturday evening, on June 23th, 2001, an unusual artistic performance by Domenico Olivero will take place at Foundation Peano, which has as their main goal, the promotion of sculpture and integration between art and natural environment.
A traditional copper vessel named candisuar will be used, and 19 candles will slowly burn in it, each one with its own shape and size.
During the happening some objects, given as gifts by some close friends, will be inserted into the vessel. They will join in bringing a new sculpture to life, as soon as the wax starts solidifying again.
As time goes by, only our memories don't get lost.
As time goes by, it exhausts our existences, only a few things it spares; those things are just little events, when distinct identities meet one another... those moments become one and the same with our existence and maybe they only leave a faint trace.
