Bianco-Valente, Towards you, 2015

Iron letters, 250x20 cm

Location: Belvedere di Punta Tragara, Capri

In one of the most symbolic places to experience the beauty of Capri's landscape, the two artists Bianco-Valente interact with the marine horizon. The viewer's gaze moves from the Faraglioni rocks toward the distant horizon. Vision leads to contemplation and then, to introspection; the landscape that stretches out to infinity therefore becomes the beginning of a journey leading back towards the viewer.

Short Bio

Giovanna Bianco born in Latronico (PZ - Italy), 1962.
Pino Valente born in Naples (Italy), 1967.
They live in Naples.

Began their partnership in 1994 investigating the scientific and philosophical point of view, the mind-body duality that every human being every day experiences within himself.
Their research has addressed the study of complex dynamics that govern the biological evolution and the interactions within ecosystems, and found that the same trends are the basis of technological development, self-organization of human social structures and network Internet.
Since 2001 experiment on themselves the theory postulates an ancient astronomical/astrological related to travel and astral influences hypothetical, performing twice a year, once the particular movements of certain parts of the globe. Following these travel experiences have been born a series of large installations related to the concept of relationship, in which artists make visible the complex network of ties linking together people and events.
