"When sculptures speak, listening
to Rodin's works" is the title of the show in Multi-image edited
by L'atrio dei gentili, with the contribution of the trust Crf.
It is the meeting with some famous sculptures of the French artist Auguste
Rodin, with images, music and texts, to search, in so complex times, a
way to be adults, a form for our life, a draft of questions. The audience
is invited to watch and listen, with eyes and ears, with heart and mind:
because only beauty will save the world.
The initiative "Faith with art" where this show is part (organized
by the catechistical and liturgical offices of the diocese of Fossano
and the already quoted association), has the scope of make some dimensions
of person talk and interact each others, like reason, affection, feelings,
faith, artistic expression…so that they enrich each others, in a fruitful
dialogue. We try to reach this aim using different instruments, like theological
reflection, poetry, music, sculpture…
