Caterina today is Riccardo Giacconi presenting I usually live abroad, 2013 by Paolo Pennuti

We asked to Riccardo Giacconi, artist winner of ArteVisione 2016, to choose for Caterina an artist's work which has particularly inspired him and has similarities with his work. He chose I usually live abroad by Paolo Pennuti. For the intro of this Caterina edition, Riccardo selected three images from his archive, which establish a visual and thematic dialogue with the Paolo's video: the first image consists of a page took from Utriusque Cosmi, Maioris scilicet et Minoris, metaphysica, physica, atque technica Historia by Robert Fludd (1617-1621); the second image is a detail from tapestry made by Bayeux that shows the observation of Halley's Comet in 1066; the third image it's a photograph made with the Hubble Space Telescope and represents the "Einstein Cross", a product of the galaxy ZW 2237 +030 and quasar G2237 +0305, that sits directly behind of it.
