No, I don’t. Especially creepy people. If you scare me, I get angry. That said, I can still take it in small doses.
Leya asks for creepy for this week’s Lens-Artists photo challenge, and I oblige with four themes:
- Three works of art by Andrea Gandini who carves art in wood, more specifically into trunks of former trees in Rome. Sister sent me a link to his website which includes the map of his works. I remembered that I discovered one piece already years ago in Trastevere. It is in the first photo in the gallery below, followed by two that I found this weekend not far from amore’s father. Not just a little creepy, if you ask me. Many pieces are gone by now. It seems trunks are not forever.
- A hidden courtyard in Rome’s Monteverde with a lady in stone who is not there by her free will, or at least this is what I feel whenever I pass.
- Monteverde’s scariest house. What’s with all those objects on the facade?
- And the last three photos are from the Sacro Bosco (Sacred forest) in Bomarzo, called The Park of Monsters. See why they call it thus in this dedicated post about my visit on a previous blog. Oh, look, that time the theme was creepy as well!
For soundtrack, something that I have been listening to for the last two days more or less non-stop: a Toronto-based Choir! Choir! Choir! and their takes on numerous hits from here and there and everywhere. Some favourites include their covers of Radiohead, Neil Young, Lou Reed and Portishead, but to stay in line with today’s creepy theme, beware of the Maneater, the Psycho Killer, and most of all, the Bigmouth who can’t wait to strike again:
Now you know how Joan of Arc felt.
And if you are in Toronto or within driving distance, please, go over there on a Tuesday, find their hangout – the back room of Clinton’s Tavern – and sing your heart out for me a little, just as I’m tracking down creepy art, and pretty doors, and all sorts of things in Italy and Slovenia, for you and for me too.
