Sedition is delighted to release A Dream in Stone, Francesca Fini's stunning new project that turns the amazing Renaissance frescoes of the Medieval castle, the Rocca Sinibalda Castle near Rome, into a cutting-edge digital art collection.
The Divine Bull is one of 8 video artworks comprising the special collection A Dream in Stone by Francesca Fini. Each artwork in the collection is inspired by a key SciFi theme: Earth after the vanishing of humanity.
"Europa kidnapped by Jupiter in the shape of a seductive beautiful bull. Giorolamo Muziano's fresco sets this famous ancient myth in an idyllic landscape full of frozen serenity. Even the violence, ideally underlying the act of kidnapping, seems to dissolve in the stillness and composure of the figures. The bull is strangely meek as if tamed in turn by the girl. Girolamo Muziano always gives us a personal perspective of the stories he tells, reinterpreting them.
In the video, the classic myth of Jupiter/Bull blends with the Judeo-Christian myth of the golden calf. We meet the totem at the end of a tunnel suspended in the clouds, encouraged by the silent invitation of one of the robots guarding the alien exoplanet. The almost motionless animal is resting on top of a hill extracted from the Planet Earth and kept as an organic relic of an ideal nature."- Francesca Fini
*The campaign is valid until 31st of October.
