Countryside Inside Installation

  • Bea Banfi

This is an interactive installation piece with changing lights. One light a normal ambient light, one is a raking light from the back, one is a UV light. The central piece is a paravent, made up of a wooden structure and paintings in different media: acrylic on canvas, paper collage, painting on paper. Some colour are flourescent and change the nature ofneach image as the light changes. Some landscape simply enchance some dramatic features through the UV light, while some others change radically: flowers become stars, the space between leaves become stars, leaves and branches become fish under the sea... All these changes and connections among the forms are based onnmy personal observation of recurring patterns: I noticed how some shapes (may it be a ‘negative shape’ or some actual pattern of natue) recurr in a very poetical wave.
