Grazia Toderi and Orhan Pamuk
Words and Stars

 
Mart Rovereto
02 April 2017 / 02 July 2017
The Mart presents a collaboration between Grazia Toderi, one of the world’s best-known artists, and Orhan Pamuk, winner of the 2006 Nobel Prize in Literature.
 
W

ords and Stars (2013-16) is a project born in 2013, when the Nobel prize-winner Orhan Pamuk, fascinated by the work of Grazia Toderi, invited the artist to create a work for his Museum of Innocence in Istanbul. The research and the exchange of words, sources and images that underpin the project focus on humanity’s inclination to explore space and its innate propensity to investigate the stars.
Presented for the first time at the Mart, the work takes the form of a trilogy divided into a monologue, a dialogue and a conversation on the stars: three large and immersive multi-screen installations composed of eight video projections, in which images and writings are fused. Thus the cosmological predilection that is an integral part of the project finds expression in a single visual and literary corpus.
The exhibition follows two events: a work created specifically for the space of the dome of Turin Planetarium, presented to the public on 5 and 6 November 2016, and a work on display from 4 November 2016 to 29 March 2017 at the Museo d’Arte Antica in Palazzo Madama.
