Postcards in motion for Marc Ribot is an imaginary video-journey that Mariella Guzzoni has dedicated to the guitarist Marc Ribot, who performed at the GAMeC at last year’s Bergamo Jazz. In the midst of these new landscapes, it is as though Ribot were playing in unexpected windows, in the solitude of nature that forms in the background. Ribot at sunset, in the twilight, at sea, between autumn leaves...Moving forms that evoke cubist guitars: veils and papiers collés, in their transparency, they look like evolving constructions.
There is no paper, card or glue, but vibration and resonance of sound and colour. The real presence of the guitarist deliquesces into vegetable or mineral forms. “Abstract art does not exist”, thus wrote Picasso in 1935.
