Fabrica, the communication research centre which since 1994 gives study grants to young creatives from around the world, presents the Posizione della Tigre (Position of the Tiger) installation from the Lana Sutra series by the young Cuban artist Erik Ravelo in the Italian pavilion at the 54th International Art Biennale of Venice.
Lana Sutra is a series of 15 installations intended as a celebration of love and of a desire for equality and sharing. The Posizione della Tigre is a plaster of Paris sculpture of a man and a women with different coloured threads wound around them. The contact between the two bodies, where the different colours mix and mingle, represents the pure, natural love which unites diversity and binds the whole of humankind in a single thread.
