KRISMA / CLANDESTINE ANTICIPATION

"Clandestine Anticipation"- 1982, un album dedicato all'acqua; ipnotico, elettronico e sperimentale. Dai Krisma (Maurizio Arcieri, Christina Moser) in un momento di altissima creatività. Tre i video girati in Indonesia. Fantastica la copertina post-moderna (i riferimenti a Kandisky non sono assolutamente casuali) firmata dal mai dimenticato Mario Convertino. Un progetto seminale proiettato nel futuro.

"Clandestine Anticipation"- 1982, an album dedicated to water; hypnotic, electronic, experimental. From Krisma (Maurizio Arcieri, Christina Moser),  in a moment of high creativity. Three videos shooted in Indonesia. Special mention for the fantastic post-modern cover art (that "samples" heavily from Kandinsky) by the never forgotten Mario Convertino. A seminal project ahead of its times.

THE LYRICS
In the center of the city was a statue and her twin
And together they watched over everything
Oh, they saw me when I stumbled and they watched you help me stand
I'd swear Cecilia and her sister had it all planned

Then one morning I was walking, from my window to your door
Well I nearly hit the ground with what I saw
Cecilia had been broken, while her sister had been spared 
And the vandals had scattered the pieces everywhere

And I knew it made me wonder what kind of twisted mind
Would ever hurt her, so thoughtless and unkind
But a monster so cruel can't be that hard to find

So I started wearing warpaint and I gathered all my friends
For Cecilia we'd be hunters 'till the end
She was built for a perfect picture, but she came to represent 
Though I guess I never understood exactly what it meant

Oh I know Cecilia and her sister were just statues made of stone
But I still missed her and now her sister's all alone
No that just won't do!
So let's raid the vandal's homes

Boys! Won't we boys?
Oh come on boys!
Come on boys!

So we ventured out at sunrise
With our torches and our spears
And our shotguns and our fears
And our carefully hidden tears

For Cecilia, Cecilia

Now I'm thinking of the moment 
When we can look them in the eye
And make them sorry, 'cause tonight they're gonna die
Yeah, we'll shoot them up dead!

Leave their bodies where they lie
Boys, won't we boys?
So now we're following the pieces of Cecilia to the door
Every shattered limb repeatedly reminding us of what we're searching for

And the sleepers have woken for now they have an aim
Yes they're quite aware of the cold hard fact that the city's loss could be their gain
They are dreaming of, the feeling of!
A trophy in their arms, a hero's welcome, claiming women with their charms

Oh I'm sorry if I hurt you, you know I swear I meant no harm
Oh baby
So the trail, it keeps on turning as we wonder through the streets
I keep looking at, the pieces of Cecilia at my feet

But the strangest thing occurs to me
When I stop to look around
Oh I'd swear we are returning to the center of the town!
Yes we're back here, where we started

Where Cecilia used to stand, but her sister looks different
Please, tell me boys, if you can?
Is that a smile on her face?
Is that a hammer in her hand?

Boys?
Run, boys, run!
Run, run, run, run!
RUN!

Hybrid, una riflessione estetica/artistica sulla  produzione storica cinese ed europea del Bone China e sui secoli di "fecondazione intellettuale" tra estetica occidentale e orientale. Prodotte in Tangshan, la "capitale del Bone China", le decorazioni sono divise a metà, creando nuovi ibridi che accostano scene e temi interpretati nell'immaginario delle rispettive culture. Bone China è un tipo di porcellana che si compone di cenere di ossa, feldspato e caolino. Bone China è rinomata per il suo colore bianco, la trasparenza e l'altissima resistenza.
Hybrid is an artistic/aesthetic reflection on the historical production of Chinese and European Bone China and its centuries of fertilisation between Western and Eastern aesthetics. Produced in Tangshan, the renowned “capital of Bone China”refined by hand, the pieces decorations are sliced in half, creating new hybrids that juxtapose scenes and themes interpretated in the respective cultural imaginary. Bone china is a type of porcelain that is composed of bone ash, feldspathic material and kaolin. Bone China is known for its high levels of whiteness and translucency, and very high mechanical strength and chip resistance.
