Doomed lovers Francesca and Paolo sing out from Dante’s second circle of Hell in this 4th installment of our Sound + Sculpture series. The cold, marble embrace of Pietro Canonica’s sculpture Abyss is matched with Francesca’s aria from Sergei Rachmaninoff’s opera Francesca da Rimini. Look while you listen!
Schoenberg’s dark orchestral love poem Verklärte Nacht (Transfigured Night), Op. 4, I sets the backdrop for Janse van Vuuren’s deconstructed human figures in this third installment of the Sound + Sculpture Series.
The eve before Yandell’s Pallas Athena set sail overseas to America for the Nashville centennial, Enid hosted an opulent candle-lit dinner party in the torso of the statue, outside her studio in Paris’ Latin quarter. A sort of bon voyage feast of colossal proportions!
