Fuoco in Tasca, a new installation by Rebecca Moccia in Turin

The appointment with the Opera Viva urban art project, conceived by Alessandro Bulgini and curated by Christian Caliandro, is renewed in Turin today.
Rebecca Moccia, one of the protagonists of the London exhibition MORE THAN WORDS… and shown in our presentation in the last edition of Artissima, is the author of the fifth release of the artistic billboard that will be unveiled tonight at 7pm.
The artwork, called Fuoco in Tasca, represents fireworks seen as a metaphor for the work and the artist, and the symbolization of portability (the small in the large and the large in the small), the intangibility, the experience. The work that Rebecca Moccia has in mind reflects an interest, an intimacy, a closeness, an empathy, a compassion. It is a work capable of living and being in the world, able to walk with delicacy and emotion, able to flourish.
Thus, this design that is at the same time humble and ambitious, idealistic and simple, is proud of the few, essential elements (lines, points, gestures); serenely exposes its fragility and readability; he is not afraid of arrare, of failures, rejects, arrests, deviations, digressions, sudden and apparently groundless falls (which, on the contrary, consider the substance of his path and his practice); its extreme, small / great utility lies precisely in its utter uselessness.

The work is visible until May 26 near the roundabout in Piazza Bottesini, Turin, and is the result of the collaboration between Opera Viva and Flashback, all art is contemporary.
