Argentinian Francisco Bosoletti recently painted a new mural titled “Genesis” for the Impronte Project, in Bonito, Italy, curated by Collettivo Boca.
Close your eyes. I am the light.
Walk on my rubble. They are the fire that reconstructs them.
Approach my belly. I am the cosmos that breathes.
Enter me inside.
The new mural consists of three walls all based on the theme of Fire, and connect to form a single figure “Genesis”. The three images can be disconnected into the female abdomen, hands and eyes. The following text has been written by Giuseppina Ottieri.
“From the big bang to Prometheus, from the Copernican revolution to the cults of the sun, from the incandescent core of the Earth that radiates energy to the palpitating heart of lovers burned by passion, always the fire was celebrated by men as the principle of creation and destruction, illumination and purification , of tangible and intangible entity together, that changing remains similar, discordant harmony of all things, primordial force that regulates the law of opposites.
Mediator between gods and men, between spirit and matter.
A vital principle that reabsorbs within itself all that has been generated from it and which will have to be born again from it.
Fire is the theme of the 3 walls created by Francisco Bosoletti Bonito, a country redesigned by the destructive power of landslides and telluric movements and yet generous of the fruits of the earth.
The three images are connected to form a single evanescent figure.
The female belly, representation of the universe, conceals the cosmic egg, the primordial nucleus of vital energy.
His hands hold the liquid gold, the vital spark present in all things.
Her eyes invite us to follow the tenuous luminous thread that guides our lives in the labyrinth of the world.” Giuseppina Ottieri
