The video constitutes the second episode of a trilogy that has as its starting point MASBEDO’s 2008 video Teorema d’incompletezza, included in the Modern and Contemporary Art Collection CRT – Castello di Rivoli, Turin. The new project evokes one of the principal themes running through MASBEDO’s creative work: sublime and powerful, hostile and primordial nature as a focal point for reflection on the human condition. As in Teorema d’incompletezza, the sublimation of a destructive act takes place in a surreal atmosphere. The same table reappears laid with crystal vases, which may be interpreted symbolically as elements of perfection and pureness, vases which may be filled with anything, like life at the beginning. A shower of confetti falls on the table, followed by cakes, sweets and sugared almonds. Finally a violent flow of cement destroys and invades the entire environment. The colourful lightness of the confetti, representing the purity of childhood, is contrasted by the achromatic heaviness of cement, a metaphor for adult life.
Ionesco Suite is a video conceived for an exhibition MASBEDO presented at Studio Carlotta Pesce, produced by Antonio and Annamaria Maccaferri, and is part of a series of works created in the sublimely beautiful Icelandic landscape.
