PAESAGGIO GEOTERMICO

A table of cracked clay, a landscape of boraciferous fumaroles, an underground sulphurous plate. The tablecloths are made from mud and then left to crack in the sun. The tureens are covered in clay mixed with tempera in colours inspired by the clothes of the children appearing in the landscape of the fumaroles and lake craters of Larderello featured in Mikhail Karikis’s video Children of Unquiet. The soup tureens contain boiling stock and when the lids are taken off they release columns of steam: the overlong boiling of the eggs in the stock produces a sulphurous smell while the plate contains tubers and roots on flaky clumps of bean flour to be moistened with the stock. The table thus displays close connections with the landscape of the fumaroles and lake craters of Larderello. While the Children of Unquiet video pervades the visual through sound, Paesaggio geotermico (Geothermal landscape) permeates the visual through smell and taste.
