THE CONTROVERSIAL ARTIST DESCENDS TO THE CRYPT
WITH HER WORKS – HOMAGE TO SAINT THERESE D’AVILA
The crypt of Chiesa di San Sepolcro, recently brought back to its glory thanks to extensive restoration works, is hosting Marina Abramović, internationally acknowledged artist and her dialogues with Santa Teresa d’Avila, one of the most important personalities of Catholicism. The work of art is composed of 3 documentary videos, which testify the performance of 2009 in the former monastery of La Laboral in Gijón, Spain; the nuns have fed here more than 8.000 orphans. It’s a tribute to the experience of mystic leavening, which has apparently taken place in the kitchen. The event will surel affect the visitors who will feel transformed though an intense experience.
