Saskia Winkelmann & Samuel Savenberg – Week 4

A bit belated, here’s our recap of the last of our four weeks at Sasso Residency. We already had to leave Thursday evening, so the fourth week went by even faster. After some low-points and unexpected sickness the week before (damn you Magen-Darm!) we managed to make up for lost time. We now will take a break from our project and then start putting the finishing touches on it.

We’d like to take this opportunity to thank the nice folk behind Sasso Residency for having us as well as Gina, Anne, Alice and Patrizio for the times we shared.

Until next time

Anne and Gina -week 4 – true blue

This week started with the Assumption and the other Madonna´s Birthday. So we went to the church in S. Nazzaro to celebrate the mass and ask the holy mother a last time for an inspirational week.
She heard obviously our prayers and we finalized our concept and went for the last time on Monte Gambarogno to shoot videos. The weather was perfect and we got even saved from a mad herd of goats. Thank you Mama Madonna!IMG_6667IMG_6660

tuta – week 3 – Diga

In this past week we went to Val Verzasca just to have a one day trip. We saw the big dam and the super beautiful rocks on the river. We also finished our illustrations for the book and now we are going to conclude this.

Anne and Gina – week 3 – veils and bergruf

calling madonna on top of monte gambarogno

“Im Anfang war Madonna
Ave,heilige Wortgebärerin der Dreifaltigkeit, der Unberührtheit, du erste alte Jungfer trächtig trotz fest verschlosser Keuschheit personifiziert in weltumfassender Schönheit und aufgespritzter Jugendlichkeit…”

to be continued.

Anne and Gina – week 2 – i would like to be remembered as a good mother first and foremost. ( madonna, pop- queen)

going deeper into the holy trinity: motherhood, virginity and race for both idols
the holy madonna.
8 hours walk towards the sky on the monte gambarogno
new thoughts about the madonna cult in a talk with the franziskaner monk Titus about Madonna as a mediatrix between us and God
try to reveal her and to veal ourselves

„in bed with Madonna“, the Pop- Queen.
developing trough „truth or dare“ texts for the performance and the confession and punishment attitude:
why is your mother embarrassing?
imagine a world without original sin?
did you adopt jesus because his skin is lighter than yours?

if Adam and Eve did not commit the original sin, would we all be fertilized by the holy spirit?image2
