EMBODIED MEMORY / AMAZING EXHIBITION @VILLA MANIN

Saturday March 4th, 2017

April 1st – May 1st 2017
Vernissage: April, Saturday 1st at 06:00 p.m. / Villa Manin di Passariano, Italy

An art exhibition gathering international artists in a joined-up and multi-faceted reflection on the collective memory, starting from the bodies and forms in which it incarnates.
The perspective focuses on the memory of the world conflicts (from the Great War, researching the legacies in the following conflicts of the Twentieth Century), still not plumed at all.

The exhibition is made of three prcincipal thematic blocks: the memory of the conflict as symbolised and placed in the natural elements, the memory laced in the materical symbolic objects of the conflict (through a significant revision of these objects, taking the distances from the idolatry for the war object, getting closer to the ready made), the memory that gradually is shrinking, becoming light into its materic bodies, until becoming an incision and then a writing.

Artworks by: Nathalie Vanheuele, Boris Beja, Lang Ea, Cosima Montavoci, Claudio Beorchia, Luca Terenzi, Ana Mrovlje, Anitra Hamilton, Ilisie Remus, Ting Bao, Victoria Lucas, Vanessa Gageos, Anne O’ Callaghan, Mario Lo Prete, Nicolas Vamvouklis.
