Event The Beautiful Words. Luca Bertolo


Le Belle Parole / The Beautiful Words
Presentation of the book
Published by Mousse

Produced in conjunction with the exhibition Le Belle Parole / The Beautiful Words at SpazioA, Pistoia, this monograph offers a rich critical overview of the work of Luca Bertolo from 2012 to 2017, with essays by Craig Burnett and Dieter Roelstraete and an interview with Antonio Grulli. The book and show’s title might work as a translation of Ñe’e Porã, the special language Guaraní shamans adopt when addressing their gods. “These Beautiful Words or Grande Parlare (talking big),” says Luca Bertolo, “demand utmost accuracy and carry enormous responsibility. Only when we pay the closest attention to the form we give to our questions (and gods have very good hearing!) may we hope to receive an answer to the crucial enigma Guaraní native peoples have been faced with for generations: Why on earth—despite feeling so similar to their gods—do they continue living in an impure world instead of yvy mara ey, the land without evil?”

Speakers:  Luca Bertolo (artist), Barbara Casavecchia (art critic and curator), Manuele Cerutti (artist), Cristiano Raimondi (Noveau Musée National de Monaco)

Language: Italian
