The Artist
In his commentary on the I Ching, the Chinese sacred Book of Changes, Wang Pi defines lightning as the “supreme non-being, which is total possibility and indeterminacy. In this sense,” he continues, “lightning that comes to a stop in the earth shows us the heart of the universe.”
In Mirabile verso di là dall’atmosfera (Wondrous Verse Beyond the Atmosphere), 1986, Marco Bagnoli explores the idea of sudden illumination, through which an event or the elements connected to it can lose their material finiteness to be transformed into metaphors of infinity. The work appears as a portion of a tiled roof, referring to the Italian rural tradition.
