MEDITAZIONI MEDITERRANEO

In viaggio attraverso cinque paesaggi instabili

Ambiente sensibile

Naples, Castel Sant'Elmo, 2002

This exhibition was built around five great “unsteady” landscapes that epitomise the stages of a proper itinerary into the senses and locations of the Mediterranean. It is the result of a journey made in an area where the accumulation of signs originates from the extraordinary, tormented charm of its territory, but also from the ancient wealth of its cultures and from the mixture of races, religions and customs of the people who live around this sea. Among the many differences, this research tackles the notion of the ideal genetic code of a layered common identity made of primary elements: matters, sounds, colours, gestures, processes, and relationships. When placed one beside the other, these elements generate landscapes and shape active sceneries: hence here are video installations, interactive devices that use the language of technology to foster the viewer’s participation in the experience, inviting him/her to share the multiple questions offered by this journey. All of this in the proactive view that «the Mediterranean is a becoming, a hope, not just an origin» (Adonis)
