SIENA
“We are the audience of our own city from different windows, viewers of our buildings, our families, ourselves.”
Pablo Gisbert – El Conde de Torrefiel

LA VERONAL 2013

A woman sits in a museum gallery and observes a painting.  Near the door a man stands and watches the scene. This is the starting point for the new project from La Veronal, which takes us to the Italian city of Siena to initiate a reflection on the conception of the human body. The human body represents and has represented the passing of the centuries, and art has involved itself with human material in as many ways as it has found convenient, while artists have used the body as a container and projector of meanings.
