May 21 – July 2, 1983
Gioia Timpanelli's installation, A Mantel with Boxes, will open on May 21st, from 5 to 7 PM, in Room 205. According to Timpanelli, "The mantel covers the place where the fire at the house center burns, where the family gathers to talk or dream, where the cold stranger is invited. Mantel with boxes is a piece based on images, after-images, night images from my story Italian Traveling."
"Stories at their best do not deal closely with what is called objective reality but rather belong to the world of non-linear sequence, to multiple realities, illusion, non-illusion, and to imagination where the wild bees tell the true history."
