Homage to Chopin / Mariateresa Sartori

On October 30th 2011,  MICROCLIMA hosted the first screening of its program using the external facade of the Serra dei Giardini.

The Venetian artist Mariateresa Sartori presented Studio N.10 in B minor op.25. Homage to Chopin, a video installation produced in collaboration with the Galleria Michela Rizzo of Venice and dedicated to the artist Roman Opalka.

The work of Mariateresa Sartori analyzes the analytical relationship between music and language, trying to investigate behavioral dynamics in the field of verbal communication. The video installation consists of two mirrored videos in which the two subjects overturn their role, making their clothes mutually interchangeable. The installation was conceived to be fully visible from Via Garibaldi: the entire facade of the greenhouse acts as a screen.
