Everyday fluorescence of Felix Gonzales-Torres
Felix Gonzales-Torres' refined evocative force at the United States of America pavilion of the Venice Biennale...
Deeply affected by the death of his companion, obsessed with sickness and death, Felix Gonzales- Torres swathes spectators in an atmosphere of nostalgia, regrets, memories and reflections on the profound meaning of human existence.
The light bulb filaments, the fluorescent tubes, destined to burn out, like the inevitable path of man, become symbolic of life and beauty: that light which invades space, communicating emotions, sensations.
