Caretto/Spagna organize a Talea Party
Rainwater falls from top to bottom and is collected; from the exterior it enters the interior, kept within a transparent basin.
Raised up, the meteoric water falls down again slowly; a diagonal flow crosses the space. Oscillating rhythmically, it transforms. On the ground, a pool of soil levels the cracks in the floor and, as it dries, contracts.
The water nourishes several Dioscorea batatas plants, known in China as shanyào (“mountain medicine”), and by the anthroposophists as “the root of light”. Its shoots grow upwards, beyond the windows, in search of sunlight. Photonic particles and other finer elements are accumulated in its long white roots, giving substance to the air. Axillary bulbils invite collective actions of dissemination.
Talea Island floats placidly in the basin; plants from Assab One’s garden and from our studio also rest on the water’s surface. They are waiting for convivial moments of exchange. A flow of five “subjects” in three movements.
