Tempus Spiritus
The elsewhere, staged, describes and sublimates the unstoppable fall of time, in its monumental decay.
The role of life as an ‘infinite ephemeral apparatus’ has generated in mankind the need to build architectures and symbols capable of welcoming and retaining what passes, elusive. Here, then, that Anna Rosati dramatizes the ‘eternal song of the spirit’, according to an investigation which in one of the places of the spirit par excellence, the Certosa Monumentale of Bologna, proposes an ideal reflection, abandoning the purely nefarious character and dwelling, on the contrary, on the concept of soul rest, of spiritual pathos.

‘Our leather is a very fine warp, an imperceptible weft of ‘fabric’ spun with skill. In its inexhaustible ability to protect by perceiving, at the same time – sensitive and receptive – the external world that surrounds us, it offers, with extraordinary reactivity, its resilience and proposes, in a neuralgic continuum, the perennial reconstruction of its original aspect, margin extreme to our living in the world ‘.

Fragments, silent narratives full of pathos, are revealed in the strong luministic contrast designed to indicate the extreme sublimation, sort of epiphanic transcendence in continuous evolution.
