The Little Boy and the Glowing Globe

A solo show by Alessia Iannetti

From Stories for Ways & Means, involving people like Nick Cave, Tom Waits, Bon Iver, Devendra Banhart and Pixies’s Frank Black, the tale illustrated by Alessia Iannetti becomes a solo show that will be housed in the Dorothy Circus Gallery of London, from 14 February 2019. Twelve miniature graphite and watercolour illustrations leading us into a sublime and oneiric scenery out of space and time, something only Alessia’s analogue atmospheres could concretise.

Written by the Swedish musician Anna von Hausswolff and her sister, the film director Maria Von Hausswolff, the story deals with a whole existence lived in the darkness of a room. A tale is suspended in a remote place and there is nothing in the darkness that can unveil it. Mysterious and undefined characters dwell in the rooms and the open spaces of the tale, which remains however ambiguous as if suspended in a mystic dimension. A revelation happens when the main character turns into a spirit: henceforth, this spirit begins its eternal search for the light. A nocturnal parade and a sad melody guide the salvific spark of the child through shining elements that break the darkness and bring revelation: a silent passage from matter to spirit, from fear to quietness.
