A tear goes down and becomes a smile. A seed destroys itself blossoming into a bud. Matter is subjected to the flow of time, it slowly changes its shape. An encounter gives rise to a new life. An instant dives into the past and becomes memory. A question looks for an answer extending itself into a mute shadow of a voice. An event that becomes, the line of a gesture, is like the wind which shakes an entire landscape, and escapes, uncatchable by memory. Anything that we can observe closely has an infinite time and is infinitesimal in other distances. A deviation that brings a vast and vital mystery to all elements of reality, a potential power, which is unstoppable, unfillable, suspended beyond the end of any dynamic act: it’s the capability and the need to produce change, movement in several parts and these parts themselves part of another movement.
Life: an ongoing, everlasting change. Birth, development, growth, maturation, ageing. Happiness, sadness. Surprises, illusions, disappointments. Encounters, abandonments, detachments, changes of places.
In this work Isabella wants to examine change in its various aspects. Continuously and perpetually, something within or outside of us changes, from the cells of our body, which divide and reproduce, to planets, asteroids, and comets, which perennially rotate around the Sun. Small changes, big changes, involuntary changes; changes that we accept and changes we want to escape, stubbornly holding on to our ideas and convictions.
