CLOSE ENCOUNTERS

Giulio Valerio Cerbella & Luisa Benevieri – 2020

Close Encounters represents an event in which a person witnesses the contact with an unidentified flying object and living beings connected to it. The installation wants to ironically recall the human nature of contacts between people, made evident by the pandemic.

With this work it is neccessary to enter voluntarily in the “tractor ray”: it wants to remid us that we are responsible for our contacts and their range and mostly with Nature. It reminds us that respect is a prerequisite for any kind of contact, even with beings from outer space.
