Casting the Circle by Sara Benaglia
In this book, the artist Sara Benaglia shows readers her performances, Casting the Circle and the Bath of Diana, with an essay written in collaboration with Mauro Zanchi, where she discusses through images, videos, and words empathic alterity, telepathy, and matriarchic sacred geometry.
In 1964, the physicist John Stewart Bell demonstrated that sub-atomic particles are reciprocally related. That’s why what happens to one particle happens to all others. We can consider people as if they were varying energy fields interacting, whose sphere of influence does not end where their skin does. Do interactions between individuals pre-exist exchange? Or, do individuals exist because certain interactions subsist? Sacred and matriarchic topography rediscovers the emerging qualities of this group intent.
