Desiderum_ Video Installations of Rocca Pia Tivoli
The falling stars have always been an important moment for those who look, the opportunity to entrust the realization of their desires, as well as the rarity of the passage of the same stars. The tradition that is still very strong today to entrust its desires to the stars has ancient roots, which are based on the same etymology of the word “desire”. The term derives from the Latin “desiderum” which means “on the stars” and is used by the artist to sublimate in a single visual account myth, cosmology, water, sea, and contemporary history, possession, passion.
Desiderum is a great installation in video mapping where, starting from this moment of European crisis, marks the myth from which etymology derives, and is here at Tivoli in one of the sources of the majestic Villa D’Este, the fountain Europe whose sculptural group (located at Villa Albani in Rome) represents the iconography of EUROPA SUL TORO.
