The Woods is an installation that grew out of the meetup between the artist Pierluca Cetera and Opera. It concertizes the endeavors of painting, stage lighting and sound to create a unified floating space endowed with the intimacy of sleep. The visitor is invited to wander through it.
Dormant figures wake, come out of the darkness and merge their breathing with the breathing of the spectator.
The portraits are created alternating richly veiled layers, such that the juxtaposing of the pictorial and the lighting lets us behold the different phases of creation over time, as if we had gone inside the color, inside the brushstroke itself.
