Other Editions 4. Il ribelle di Genova [The Rebel of Genoa] by Francesco Barilli and Manuel De Carli marks the end of the relationship of conflict, while still maintaining dialogue, among a multiform movement with many souls like the anti-globalists that met in Genoa for the G8 summit. Reading it while also taking into account the verdict on the Diaz School may in effect clarify what took place during those days, over and above the death of a twenty-three year old whose shared biography is set out in this book through the eyes of those who knew him.
His sweet appearance will not prevent him from living the distance, filling the emptiness, finding the space that welcomes him in the strange breeze that stirs today in this strange Europe, consoling but certainly not welcoming. Pioneering publishers who devote themselves exclusively to the production of reality comics, also infecting the big publishing houses for example Rizzoli Lizard and Mondadori , journalists and researchers who try their hand at scripts, actual investigations that take the form of sequences.
A post-realism manifested in an Italy which appears to have taken an irrationalistic and burlesque turn, and which I believe still has much to recount and to draw. Rapporto sul sapere, Milan Ferraris, Manifesto del nuovo realismo, Laterza Roma-Bari E ne coglie con grande sintesi elementi di contraddizione, cartografando le pulsioni nascoste. Tutti ingredienti assenti nel paese del generale deposto, e che purtroppo latitano anche alle nostre latitudini. Pare che durante le rivolte del sia riuscito ad evadere di prigione. Successo, affari, politica, amore, gelosia, sangue.
Giuda indaga il tradimento delle immagini. Lo fa con animo dark, ma ottimista. Giuda si pone come obiettivo implicito il denunciare attraverso la propria esistenza che resiste alla targettizzazione, al prodotto, al merchandising, al mercato, alla distribuzione,e a molte altre cose, la posizione di privilegio che nel tradimento ha il disegno. Un tentativo indagatore sui processi memoriali nella costruzione di sequenze. Una cosa ben diversa dalla costruzione della sequenza narrativa tradizionale. La memoria non opera in senso lineare, concatenando in modo logico e comprensibile gli eventi, tra un prima e un dopo.
Giuda segue un movimento territoriale, ma anche il movimento centrifugo del processo di appropriazione della memoria.
E la visione non ha sempre bisogno della retina, anche se Giuda si impegna nello sviluppo di questa parte del corpo umano. A man has to be born somewhere! Metamorphosis often appears as a metaphor that has remained latent for a whole lifetime and is suddenly understood in visual terms1: the metaphoric process that leads to transformation passes decisively from the visual in the context of mythological tradition, precisely in order to render rationally comprehensible something that might otherwise remain relegated to the exclusive sphere of faith.
In the metaphoric process, which leads to a change that translates this latency into matter, a deep idea of crisis is implicit; the unease perceived in the transformation may be condensed into anguish, pain of loss or, more sentimentally and profitably, into nostalgia. But the mythological argument, and substantially also the artistic one, feeds on transformation and metamorphosis.
And the very notion of Europe, from which we draw to define boundaries, transitory and presumed identities, and which constitutes an imaginary embankment against otherness, has its roots in a metamorphic voyage: young Europa abducted by Zeus in the form of a white bull.
A voyage whose starting point was the coast of modern Lebanon. And it is precisely from this concept of broad gaze that our curatorial voyage set out on this arbitrary mapping of the metamorphic visions of the artists invited. From that Europa who lingered with her handmaidens to play on the shores of Tyre. A light and disenchanted irony, a play of unexplored references and queries which seeks the way to finding names and combinations that are new but feed on a nostalgia without ID card. Yet in working with a visual grammar that employs many shared references it is possible that the metamorphic process of artistic creation might lead to assonant solutions.
In inhabiting a glance we cannot preclude the space we inhabit, but at the same time the space chosen as ideal geography for this exhibition project has a sea at its centre which, antonomastically, is a place of transit and movement. Because in the act of naming there is also the act of creating, and we are reminded of this by Alban Muja, an artist from Pristina who concentrates his action on this different geography of names, running with the times, encountering places or making their bearings difficult.
And who are you who calls me? And nostalgia without memory is certainly a trait in many works. Her artistic transformation renders these options visible and recognisable, placing them in a dimension that is immediately comprehensible in the act of looking. Powerful narrative tension emerges clearly in the collective piece TouchStories by Isabella Mara, Camilla Monga, Serena Porrati, Maria Giulia Serantoni, Domenico Stranieri and Ramona Zordini, which grew out of a workshop with Studio Azzurro: a story will save our lives and thus link up with our history.
Narrators, narratees and public become one. The breadth of the glance and its stubbornness in being intangible are also the subject matter of Clio Casadei, an Italian artist who exhibits the bare result of her irremediably lost artistic actions, and Almudena Lobera who, through drawing in particular, materialises the frustration of this impossible mediation. A cartographic vocation that wanted to investigate representations of the mental landscape, for example.
A concept which in itself came late in our culture. In both cases the photographic spectre does not record, it imposes its own glance without absolution.
The predominant line in this artificial and synthetic geography has been the representation of power, understood as a device which contains fetishes and with which the artist has the possibility of dialoguing precisely by virtue of its transposition into icon, into an already naked image. Power has become thing: bread that goes bad and shows putrefaction also marks the temporary nature of power.
The hourglass has run out, irony remains in re-chewing words that become objects. If the animal is unpredictable, might not man also be? Is there a prescribed and taken for granted fate, as is actually outlined today in the economic measures undertaken by delegitimized governments, but acting in virtue of this hypothetical predestination of the act? Zygouri acts as devastator. She does not bring answers but permits the suspension of the predictable.
The anaesthesia of vision is replaced by the synaesthesia of action. Yael Plat interacts with the spectator through direct provocation towards political action: No Entry leaves no room for ambiguity. The door is closed to all the named categories, even to you who are reading the writing. A protagonist of change and also an inquirer into the forms that power assumes and that involve those subject to it, Wafa Hourani uses ironic forms to transpose history into pop metaphor, the history of a people substantially imprisoned and obliged to exile in their own land which has by now been worn down by mediatization.
Slave to a past that does not pass, to a geography that interweaves power and bodies, Borjana Mrdja examines the breakdown and recomposing of the Bosnian frontiers, transferring the borderline onto the wound of her own hand, which is also subject to the wear and tear of time. A wear and tear which Bisan Abu-Eisheh attempts to resist by containing — by means of museographic and classificatory tension — the dispersion of the dust of the vanquished: for three years he collected the rubble of demolished houses in Jerusalem owned by Palestinian families and set it in a museum.
Thus also Zoulika Bouabdellah who, in drawing up sumptuous and ironic representations of the geographies of female commonplaces in the Arab world, does not shrink from the illness of memory recovery in the form of ethical nostalgia, in works like Genie Lady, inspired by a sentimental Arab cult movie of , redesigned with evident ironic references to the Orientalist tradition. Nostalgia for the future is found in the work of Danilo Correale who touches on a city — Istanbul — which reappears in many biographies and productions of these migratory artists.
Naming and dreaming, the possibility of controlling the imagination and everything pertaining thereto through attribution of a name, and the loss of control through oneiric activity or perhaps its acquisition in more interesting forms The step to Almudena Lobera, seeking manuals for mental places, is a short one: in her images of sober and suspended beauty, from this exercising of visual synthesis that is not closed to aestheticism, there emerge series that amaze with their philosophic cleanness and expository clarity.
The drawing of a tree does not portray a tree but a tree that is observed3: the mental place is not shown but its observation is.
Tiberi, Strappato and Nicolai, different in codes and references, take their place in the project Porta Pia — Open Academy, as mirrors of the glance, cultivators of the apparent abandonment of places: rather like guides of vision, without however a predetermined aim but, to quote Alex Langer, leapers of walls. And so we come back to the origins, to the wide gaze of Europa: the appearance of this journey of love cannot remain silent about the misfortunes her abduction brought about in subsequent stories.
None of the invited artists believes in the apparent and sweetening ideology of a reconciled Mediterranean. Some concentrate on stating it through their art, others denounce it in their reticence about naming the country they were born in. Parla un linguaggio iconico immediato, anche se stilisticamente ineccepibile. Ad esso il ruolo di sipario strappato che inevitabilmente mostra qualcosa che di norma si vuole celare dietro la tenda. Unknown sports are the ones practised by women to survive the daily erosion of possibilities, the infinite obstacles that a deeply male chauvinist society has produced over the millennia.
For modern Goddesses Kali of the thousand arms, a fitness workout is not understood as the process of mortifying the body to which many submit in order to approach ideal models of plasticized femininity: rather it is the Olympic ability to conjugate identities, expectations, commitments and roles day after day. Unknown Sports , like many other works by this Turkish artist, needs no special subtitles. It speaks an iconic language that is immediate, although stylistically beyond criticism.
The unknown space evoked in the title, and which becomes public, extended, surreal, is the stone guest which takes the role of ripped away drape that inevitably displays something normally intended to be concealed behind the curtain. The point of view is focalised, concentrated, and the poetics coherent. The propulsive centre of her multiform work — which has taken her in a short time to a qualitatively significant presence at international level — is the deconstruction of commonplaces, of stereotypes and of the codified maps that define political, cultural and gender-related identities.
The appearance and the embalmed codification transmitted to us of the female image in the world of Islamic and in particular Turkish tradition, is completely overturned here, making us part of a femininity which belongs to us inasmuch as we are women who are revealed in their shared condition of subordination, but at the same time of Olympic athletes of destiny. Numerous artistic activities, hard to label under any one category, are attributable to the pseudonym Ganzeer.
