This exhibition is a tribute to the work of Umberto Galimberti narrative that in the 90s wrote “Parole nomadi” (reprinted and published by Feltrinelli in 2006). An interesting book that in some ways sums up a literary, philosophical aesthetics and very timely. The order of words gives an upward journey of the contemporary landscape, through horizons plumb anthropology and mythmaking. The nomadic wandering in search of the goal, a space in which the human being is recognized in the planning of his life and in the roots of habit or that thin line that between heaven and earth, trace the coordinates between the thought and image.
Words such as action, biodiversity, censorship, disenchantment, faith, globalization, identity, innocence, memory, power, transcendence, become in this sort of Dadaist games, a fantastic dictionary view of the human condition of the XXI Century. Through the visual search of the eleven artists in the exhibition – Barwell Nancy, France, Susan Dutton, USA; Isidora Ficovic, Serbia, Maria Luisa Imperiali, Italy, Gunilla Oldenburg, Sweden; Christen Mattix, U.S., Danielle McCullough, USA; Katarina Norling, Sweden; Liora Rosenman, Israel; Mariana Bartholomeo & Stuart Ross Snider, USA; Marie Tomeoki, Canada – the word becomes image, discovery, trace a sort of mail art and the art itself is the medium that combines the ideas and makes them become containers and contents of the collective experience.
