The “Black Room Experience-BRE” included experimentally in the exhibition “Sulle orme di Escher” originates from the aim to re-legitimize the distinctive artistic aspect of each one of us, help the work of art to be received in those places in our soul which often remain desolate, inaccessible and unknown to ourselves, as well as stimulate the creative process which characterizes the whole of human nature.
How it works:
The observers will be able “to go through the exhibition”, letting themselves lose their “balance” just for a while, thanks to an experience, short but significant enough to let an emotion reveal itself to such an extent that it becomes shape, expression, colour – installation.
Those who choose to enter the Black Room become willing to venture on a piercing of their very souls and give shape to the experience that comes from all this. Under the guidance of therapists people can enjoy feeling their real, deep emotions, being moved, and creating shapes out of these emotions. Out of the Black Room come aesthetic representations and traces of the souls which have gone right through the exhibition and have left traces behind in the exhibition. A video installation documents the experience.
