ASUNCION: MONTEVIDEO URUGUAY

December 2014

In this quick street piece painted with David de la Mano in the center of Montevideo, the artists wanted to relate the figure and the words to the nearby church of Nuestra Senora de los Dolores Tierra Santa.
Appropriately titled “Asunciòn”, it is based on a poem by Julio Cortàzar, the novelist, short story writer, and essayist. “Oh noche, asiste” is about outer space as well, Opiemme tells us, and he used the portion of the poem that says “Oh night take care of your lonely stars”.

LITTLE TRIBUTE TO SZYMBORSKA IN MOSCIANO

August 2014

Street poetry on bricks. Words are from the very first three lines of Wislawa Szymborska’s poem “Under a certain little star”.
“My apologies to chance for calling it necessity.
My apologies to necessity in case I’m mistaken.
Don’t be angry, happiness, that I take you for my own.”

 

Quote from Wislawa Szymsborska Poesia su mattone – Poem on brick
