WART - La bellezza della tragedia ( La bauté de la tragedie ) / 2008
concept: Oliviero Toscani
videoediting: Leandro M. Emede

Art shows us that beauty can exist even in things that we are unable to accept. We have also learned that the beauty in something that we find repulsive offers a special kind of attraction that verges on the obsessive. Just think of all the crucifixions, battles, bloodbaths, martyrs, deaths, beheadings and sexual deviances that have been depicted in ancient art. Yet when we look upon these works we perceive them as beautiful.
In today’s world, where our tastes are conditioned by cultural uniformity, we are losing our individual ability and sensitivity to be amazed on perceiving something beautiful.
