Aria

A project by Gonzalo Borondo

The wind crashes, but brakes and starts again. Mankind should not believe they are able to stop it. Man can’t continue to imagine his life with no respect for the constant innovative power of nature and his migration, without learning from the air and the birds, man himself and other animals. The body of a woman simply filters an even more powerful vision. The outline first drafts new perspectives, then invites the public to overcome it and enjoy the infinite grandeur of the landscape.

This is Aria, by the spanish artist Gonzalo Borondo, one of the most impressive artwork, in a public space, in the field of the silk-screen printing. A long and complex creative process has seen the artist paint and scratch by hand 36 matrix glasses, transformed into looms for printing. The image of the naked woman proudly raising the empty flag to heaven, is essential and primitive in order to invite its audience, during the day, to approach and reconsider the community, which is bored by the buildings and unable to see and enjoy what nature has already given.

The absence of the drape, which for centuries has represented membership and protection for the individual and at the same time boundary and division among the peoples, annuls today its political value and raises an ethical, unitary and collective banner that in the belly of man, in the colors of the sky and in the blowing wind finds the direction of a new consciousness.

The artwork, located in Catanzaro, Italy on the occasion of the 4th edition of Altrove Festival, focuses on the landscape, eternal source of life, beauty and diversity though inexplicably devastated by man’s wickedness. At night the glass reflects the lights of the castle whose conquest represented freedom for the fearless people of the city, at the time renowned all over the world for the quality of its silk and example of democracy and civilization.
