Installation - Palermo 2018

«Earth: I Am»

Anthroposophische Gesellschaft Italien

An installation to reveal the sense of one and the multiple, unity and infinite parts, the original and diversity.

It travels trough the world and arrives from the Goetheanum to the Island of Sicily because its the vocation is made of waters and lands, where hearts and breathes beat and resonate with Unison to rediscover the Original Love.

Lara Pedilarco


Installation starts ...

With hands full of earth that will become cups for drops of water to rediscover the meaning of life, the Earth, the Water, to rediscover ancient memories, to express intentions of light and to remember and generate hope;

It opens up the artistic relation between Man, Earth, Nature ...

The one and the multiple, the unity and the infinite parts, the theme of originality and diversity, biodiversity in nature as wealth and in man, the universally human element that expresses itself in an infinite variety ofcultures ;f the work is interactive, witnessed and participated by an individual as free gesture ...

With this free and conscious gesture, an act of will is accomplished, I find a connection with the element Earth  and Water, with its living aspect, I rediscover a memory and at the same time express an intention of goodness and gratitude towards these elements;

An artistic and international gesture ...

Because art is a universal language which directly arrives to the heart overcoming all barriers; art is the meeting of people in which man rises to the creative dimension that constitutes the spiritual essence of nature.


Because the true art is the meeting with the other, because it is among the people that you can manifest something extraordinary that can only come from the meeting, a source of growth and evolution.

the Mediterranean ...

Because its vocation is to be a crossroads of people and an opportunity for dialogue between spiritual and cultural currents.

At the Botanical Garden ...

Because Nature is an unconscious manifestation of the creative power of being, which is the backdrop to the creativity of man through art.


«The spiritual world is the consciousness of one's own humanity»

«Italy without Sicily, does not leave any image in the spirit. Sicily is the key to everything "[...]

«The purity of the contours, the softness of everything, the yielding exchange of colors, the harmonious unity of the sky with the sea and the sea with the earth ... who has seen them only once, will have them for life».

J.W.Goethe, "Journey to Italy" 1817

EARTH: two full hands, then stored and wrapped in paper;

WATER: in a well-closed plastic tube;
