Timeless fragments: chromatic vibrations between water and earth – whose title is borrowed from fragments and archaeological finds in the city of Brindisi, the venue of the event – is a FESTIVAL of Visual, Sound and Performing Arts, that wants to make sense of detail in its uniqueness, recalling the places of “universal synergies” and the relationship between “identity and territory”. About 60 national and international artists have been invited to dialogue with the city and the space that hosts them.
The Festival – promoted by Primo Piano LivinGallery and curated by Dores Sacquegna – has as institutional partner the Municipality of Brindisi, and as a cultural partner the Cact Center of Arts, Culture and Tourism, Department of the Atlantic Museum of the Island of Lanzarote in Spain. Artists from all over the world show thier works and projects: From Europe, Asia, Middle East, Russia, USA, in synergy dialogue with the Puglia’s Region.
The Festival opens with three unprecedented performances of experimental theater and sound art: by Apulian artists Massimiliano Manieri (in collaboration with the performer artist Michaela Stifani and the musician Max Nocco) and by American performer Jeannette Joy Harris.
The Festival is divided into three sessions of which: “LANDGRAPHIE”, “RITUAL ROOMS”, and “3D PROJECT ROOM”, all of them, crosses unstable territories, launches new challenges, proposes different points of view, dialogue with the social. The project manifests itself, as a concrete sign of a constantly changing society, through divergent dynamism of thought, works that carry the visitor into new imaginative connections.
The “LANDGRAPHIE” session is dedicated to Land Art and hosts unpublished videos and projects of some of the most interesting contemporary land-artists including: Christo & Jeanne-Claude, Craig Dongoski, Pam Longobardi, Ulrike Arnold. In NATIONAL PREVIEW, the whole project of videos titled “SILSILA” by Iraqi Sama Alshaibi and the film “UNDER WATER SCULPTURE” by the British sculptor Jason deCaires Taylor, worldwide know for his monumental sculptures in the marine parks and, for an incredible coincidence, somehow recalls and remembers archaeological finds in the waters of Brindisi. Both films were presented in part in the recent Venice Biennale.
