photographs, gold spray, river mussel and river water
Project realised with Lunigiana Land Art curated by Spazi fotografici e Matèria Gallery.

There was a time when it was customary to perform pagan rituals using natural elements such as rivers, springs, wells, stones, etc.
With the advent of Christianity, pagan rites were banned, and any polytheistic rituals were punished.
What relationship would we have today with Nature if this had not happened?
Photographs lead us to re-appropriate the river as a sacred element, to dip our hands into the holy water font made of river mussels, which naturally purifies river water.
