Vera Manzi-Schacht


MEMORY PALACE CHAMBER: WHEN THE STARS CAME OUT IN PIENZA


A mixed media art video presentation based on Manzi-Schacht’s magic realist novel, as inspired by her medieval historical research. It recalls the cascade of stars enveloping a hilltop piazza in Pienza, Italy, during a dark moonless night - under the sign of the Great Mother - when Muirgen, the twin-tailed Irish mermaid, was transformed into a woman.
