FEU SACRÉ (SACRED FIRE)

11TH OCTOBER – 3RD NOVEMBER 2018
“The universe buries strange jewels deep within us all, and then stands back to see if we can find them,” (Gilbert, E. 2015
“The sacred fire is the irrepressible and permanent need to keep working in my studio, every single day, to the point of feeling guilty when for one reason or another I have to stop. The studio is my favorite place of life, the place where I feel anything is possible to live the adventures of form and color, order and chaos, transcendence. And to experience some truths revealed by the work, on myself, on the nature of the world and the great mystery that surrounds everything, on aesthetics or geometry or beauty, and always in connection with the dears absents, the ones I call my invisibles-still-acting.
This is the sacred fire, at least the way I feel it, a sort of addiction to the act of creation compounded by an impossibility of escaping this inner call. An enthusiasm and ardour at work, despite the sometimes boring or ungrateful aspects.
In a word, the ‘sacred fire’ within me is the passion to explore the material, to make it say things, things to be shared afterwards with the greatest possible number of brethren.”
