Upon entering a museum, what would our reaction be if we suddenly saw landmines in front of us? Or crates containing war fragments that show their destructive potential? If we thought that these were real landmines and not just sculptures evoking symbolic destruction, we would be paralyzed by a deep sensation of terror and fear of the slightest movement.
Maybe the most profound objective of this artistic production by Andrea Caruso is to block the spectator from every irrational and unwary action, and plunge him into an image of “danger’s proximity”, where only the attention to each other can save us. In a time in which we have measured human’s fragility in respect to mother nature, we still have a very long way to go before we truly comprehend how dangerous we are to ourselves.
