Warding off fear

From the fresco « The Effects of Good and Bad Government », Warding off fear uses dancing terms: it depicts absent images and in doing so, the products, the extended periods, interferes, deviates or experiences delusions. But it is also about connecting us to the history of representation, by literally plunging into it and quantifying what is left. The Italian fresco painted by Ambrogio Lorenzetti was a tool for propaganda through painting, the proposition of a political program: resist tyranny and relearn the art of good living together. It was in Siena, in 1338. Yesterday, as it were.
