Bwindi Light Masks Torino (1)

During my first day in Italy on my Great Northern Italy Adventure, we toured the city of Torino (Turin). It was the day after Christmas, so there were many art installations on display, spread all over the city. The one that stuck in my mind the most was called “Bwindi Light Masks,” by Richi Ferrero, and installed at Palazzo Reale. Forty identical masks, from the Bwindi National Park in Saharan Africa, are placed in dark space similar to ancient terracotta pieces. The light changes the colors of the masks, and the sounds of Tuvan throat singing adds to the effect.
