Ezra Pound

Ezra Pound

2006 – Legno, cemento, gesso.           
Dimensioni:  cm. 68x60x8

Partendo da una straordinaria fotografia fatta proditoriamente da Lisetta Carmi ad un Pound malato e recalcitrante, ho realizzato un bassorilievo del suo viso dominato dalla gran massa di capelli arruffati, da cui dipartono come saette in corrusche nubi alcuni folgoranti brani tratti dai suoi Cantos.

My starting point was an extraordinary photo that Lisetta Carmi took to an unaware Pound. He was sick and intractable. It is a bas-relief of his head surrounded by a long, untidy mane of white hair. From his hair, as darting lines, and into dark clouds, depart unforgettable verses from his Cantos.
