Rosa Mundi’s atelier is located in the fifteenth-century tower of the Castello di Morsasco in the hills of Monferrato
The Abrahamic forest / La Foresta Abramitica
The sacred scriptures of the Abrahamic religions engraved in the bark of the trunks of the forest in ceramic, Hebrew, Greek, Latin and Arabic. Rosamundi takes you on a journey through the maze of creation in the Bible, the Gospel and the Koran.
The resurrection is the central and final event of the Gospel narrative is a work inspired by the resurrection of Christ. In this installation the artist recalls the blood of Christ and the sacrifice that over the centuries is recalled at the time of the rite of the Eucharist, using the ancient wine barrels of the Castle, flooding them with vivifying light, the light of faith and trust in forgiveness of God.
Rosa Mundi recalls the dawn of the Sunday of Mary of Magdala, Mary of James and Salome at the sepulcher. The work is the final act of the artist’s creation of a strongly spiritual scenario that envelops the discovery of the open sepulchral stone. Rosa Mundi after creating an installation called “The Creation: the bed of God” with 12 meters of pure white linen, drawn in graffiti and gold thread and coral depicting the 7 days of creation with a glass ball in the center reflective created a scenic fictio with three dancers around.
From this performance he then obtained numerous photographic shots aimed at overlapping the fifth day of creation, i.e. the day on which God created the animals of the sea and the sky, with the globe depicting the day of God’s rest with the announcement of the resurrection of the flesh of Christ to the three women who rushed to the tomb.
No reference is random, the pure and delicate linen recalls the sacred shroud with which the blow of Christ was wrapped, the reference to the creation of the world and the salvation of the world by means of the sacrifice of the son of God and his subsequent resurrection are all elements of the same interpretation.
The lightness of the fabric and the delicate silhouettes of the three women in a position of prayer give the work the impalpability of the faith and spirituality of the commemorative moment.
