PRISM is pleased to announce Sister Sara’s Theme, an exhibition conceived as a soundtrack. Curators Gigiotto del Vecchio & Stefania Palumbo borrow the title from Ennio Morricone’s score for a feature film and present the exhibition as a homage to both Morricone and to the powerful entanglement of scripted drama and scripted music.
Morricone makes music for images, which gives del Vecchio & Palumbo the possibility to imagine a show as a soundtrack of a movie that is told through the works, an impossible movie, a conceptual vision. To tell stories is like inventing new worlds, creating different images, fantastic scenarios, putting every single piece together thanks to a unique frame: an amazing soundtrack that is there, in your mind and you only have to give it a material body.
An opening reception for Sister Sara’s Theme will be held on Friday, October 4 from 7-9 pm.
