Il tesoro di Bruna, 06.22.2021
Traditional Italian linen soaked in dyes made from coffee, onion skins, Primitivo wine, chamomile, ash, and cochineal while in residence at Masseria Cultura, Noci, IT.
This site-specific installation is reminiscent of the typical Italian panni stesi. I dyed traditional Italian linens and hung them to dry outside so the sun and wind can mark their presence. They were left as a part of the landscape at Masseria Cultura, and will change with the passage of time.
Pictured here is after three weeks, where most of the colors have faded.
