Artist Statement

the sculptural installation is a work that through the video work remains an exceptional testimony of the event which, with special permission, is exhibited inside the Basilica of San Pietro in Vincoli in
Rome. The work has its own spiritual mystery to sensitize the soul of the viewer. Thanks to the special permission of the Italian Ministry of Cultural Heritage, the show was possible. Which is a revelation of the meaning of Michelangelo's work IL MOSE "

How it fits into contest

The video BODY OF LIGHT is the testimony of a moment lived in a sacred place. The sculptural installation that is no longer matter but light is a sacred door.
Door that invites us to enter a spiritual plane where a final clash between good and evil is fought. The light is the strength, the ardor and the hope that the human finds the forest of the essence of him. Essence constantly tested by the darkness that cancels our rebirth.
