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 Red Mask 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.
Live and discover the experience for yourselves! Everyone who purchases the full collection will receive a night stay in the Castle in the historic heart of Italy alongside the Eternal City. An inspirational and not-to-be-forgotten experience!*
"In the second video of the collection, I tell the myth of Proserpina, one of the most beautiful representations by Girolamo Muziano, standing out in the room of the Metamorphoses at the Rocca Sinibalda Castle. The young kidnapped Proserpina encloses in her mystery the sacred amazement of men at the alternation of the seasons, in the ferocious and relentless rhythm of nature that devours and renews itself.
Autumn and Spring, Winter and Summer, Old Age and Youth, Death and Life are sides of the same coin. In this video, the eternally spinning medal on which our lives hang, has the shape of a red mask, melting in front of us in a clot of red blood, soft and elastic like a cloth. A cloth that unravels, falls, bounces, and comes back. Everything is consumed and everything is reborn, in the eternal return which is the very essence of metamorphosis."- Francesca Fini
*The campaign is valid until 31st of October.
