On Thursday, December 12th, from 5 to 8 pm, the Foundation presents in the Studio of Arnaldo Pomodoro the video "Walking through the walls" by Francesco BerteléWalking through the walls (40' VR 360° ambisonic) is part of the project Hic sunt dracones by Francesco Bertelé, curated by Chiara Pirozzi and promoted by Made in Cloister Foundation, winner of the 4th edition of the Italian Council (2018), a competition created by Directorate-General for Contemporary Creativity and Urban Regeneration of the Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities.
After the presentation at Amsterdam’s Mediamatic center, Fondazione Arnaldo Pomodoro will host the first step of Hic sunt dracones’ transmedial narrative. The work will be presented in its entirety in January 2020, with the release of the final version on the occasion of an exhibition at Naples’ Museo Madre – to which the work is being donated - together with the presentation of the artist's book as an integral part of the entire project.
The video Walking through the walls will be presented in the evocative venue of Studio Arnaldo Pomodoro and viewed with Oculus GO and MEZE AUDIO headphones, to experience it in a collective immersive way. The video is completed by a soundtrack composed by the musician Bienoise and editing meant to create a physical and tangible link between the artist, his experience and the performance acting on the end-user.
