We Rise by Lifting Others is one of Marinella Senatore’s luminous sculptures, and incorporates for the first time Arabic writing and visual motifs from the surrounding Najd province, which Senatore intertwines with designs from southern Italy. These changes show the artist’s commitment to adapting her work to its surrounding environment and to ease a feeling of cohesion with the public. Senatore’s poetic message is here given in Arabic, in the hopes of creating a better understanding among its viewers and a community inspired by the arts and society at large. This immense luminous structure with bright tones is elevated so that it can be seen from afar, providing a rallying point for all to wonder at and to use as a place of exchange or a conversation starter.
