DATE: From 7th to 21th December 2020
VENUE: Palmieri’s Foundation, Lecce, Italy
Primo Piano is pleased to announce the new contemporary art exhibition entitled: "Worldview: The anthropology of eco-vision".
The event will be set up inside the Palmieri's Foundation, an ancient and Renaissance location in the heart of the old city of Lecce on December 2020. Lecce is the capital of Baroque in Southern Italy, also known for the beauty of its landscape and for paper mache. Florence of the south is called for its numerous architectural and artistic riches and heritage.
"Worldview: The anthropology of eco-vision" is a research project that testifies with an experiential and artistic approach, the interference that human activity has produced on the natural cycles of the planet, proposing a reflection of the impact of our species on Earth, more than ever present in the moment of a global pandemic and which strongly questions the unstable balance between man and nature.
Between vision and perception, artists are asked to represent their point of view on the theme with their works, in line with an ecological vision of the world and reflecting on words such as: NATURE – NATURANS (Nature and artifice); SUSTAINABILITY – ADAPTATION (protection of animal and plant biodiversity, separate collection of waste, plastic, drifters and pollution, natural resources, eco-sustainable materials etc); CHANGE – COEXISTENCE (climate change, solidarity between individuals and the environment, optimistic visions, aesthetic balance of nature, etc.).
Covid-19 Pandemic allow us to reflect on the real power of art, to restore, uplift, inspire and offer to all a hope for the future. Lecce is covid free from May 1, 2020. International artists are welcome to submit works before of September, 30, 2020.
