Lucia Veronesi – Out there, a big night of stars – 4:00, 2016




 

Reassuring and comfortable home rooms witness the catastrophe that is taking place outside the window. The cosy and old-fashioned furnishing promises protection — fabrics are bright, the fireplace is lit, but outside the world is crumbling: in vast and deserted lunar atmospheres the planets collide, the Earth collapses and reverses its rules. A violent nature destroys, transforms and sinks. The safety of these rooms is only apparent. The video is made in stop-motion, and it combines images, collage and painting.
