“Words and Stars” (2013-2016) is a project born in 2013 when the Nobel Prize winner Orhan Pamuk, fascinated by the work of Grazia Toderi, invited the artist to design a work for the Museum of Innocence in Istanbul.
The research and the exchange of words, images and sources place it at the center of the project the inclination of man to explore space and innate vocation to question the stars. Presented for the first time at the Mart, the work takes shape in a trilogy divided into a monologue, dialogue and conversation on the stars: three large installations immersive multi-screen consisting of eight video projections, which combine images and text. The vocation cosmological inherent to the project thus finds expression in a unique visual and literary body.
