The stars of Marius Romen at the Kunst Meran

of Annalisa Rosso

 

Humans have been attracted to stars in the sky from ancient time: according to recent studies, the first traces of religious cults dedicated to star worship date back to the Paleolithic period. Today, light pollution permitting, it is possible to observe several thousand celestial bodies with the naked eye, and our imagination has never ceased to be influenced by them. One speaks of a "good star" to indicate a favourable fate, it defines "star" as a successful character, and the list of references - scientific, philosophical, social, religious - goes on and on. "These blessed candles of the night" (1) remain distant, mysterious objects. The simple and effective work of artist and designer Marius Romen, currently installed in the spaces of Kunst Meran, brings the magic of a starry sky up close. Its stylized stars, inflated with helium, move lightly following small currents of air, and float a short distance away from visitors, transmitting fun and a great sense of serenity. You'll smile just looking at them for a few moments and you'll find yourself thinking "the stars look very different today” (2) .
