An interview with Rebecca Russo, art collector and President of the Videoinsight® Foundation, about A Glass Of Fruit, a video by Alejandro Almanza Pereda which we discovered during the last edition of Artissima in Turin.
As an art expert, which aspects do you find particularly interesting in this video featuring food?
This artwork is so attractive. It captures your body, your mind, your heart, your soul. It provokes you through powerful images, colors, music, fundamental meanings. It is fresh, represents life, transmits energy. It is a source of beauty. The video expresses primary, essential and universal needs. It contains symbols and metaphors. It stimulates narration and rewriting of life. It moves sensations, perceptions, emotions, desires and memories. It moves feelings. It warms and nurtures. It induces creativity, catharsis, fantasy and dream. It touches the unconscious. It takes you into the inner world: it penetrates the unconscious rapidly. The artwork is for everyone. It shows a real action and a unique performance within time and space. It is unsolved, elusive, mystery. It does not offer truths, but suggests paths of interpretation. It is so relaxing, meditative and poetic. It is relational. It causes projections and elaborations. It changes distances and points of view. It reduces resistances and defenses. It suspends between possibilities. It renews, regenerates, recharges and transmits vital determination.
