Eolie 1950/2015. Mare Motus

Eolie 1950/2015. Mare Motus. The island in contemporary art, from Sicily to Chile is the title of the big exhibition starting on Sunday 12th July 2015 and opening to the public in the enchanting former Church of Santa Caterina, inside the Lipari Castle. The exhibition curated by Lea Mattarella and Lorenzo Zichichi is integral part of the broader biannual cultural project Mare Eolie that involves also the area of the upper citadel.
The curators' project emerges clearly from the title and subtitle: selecting from the national and international scene a group of around 40 artists that might deal – specifically on this occasion or who have already dealt with the subject of the island. Based on the concept introduced by Gesualdo Bufalino that sees Sicily as a plural island, as the awesome microcosm rich in plentiful languages capable of representing different worlds, independent and contrasting with each other and to claim the need for a journey during which you can land each time on a different image. A diversity maintained also in the plurality of forms of expression chosen – painting, sculpture, video installation, photography, pottery- along with a specifically designed set-up that will help stressing the idea conveyed of a modernity within an ancient venue becoming a sophisticated exhibition setting.
The works of art will establish a dialogue with the hosting spaces of the former church, both an imposing physical place and a true place of the soul, where emotions and reflections can be laid down by means of a contemporary language and the historical and cultural signs featuring it ever since restored to light. Among the photography projects those by Martin Parr, Elger Esser, Nan Goldin, Gioberto Noro, Carlo Gavazzeni Ricordi, Raffaela Mariniello, Alice Pavesi Fiori and Veronica Naldone, among the video installations the work by Elena Bellantoni. And also Valerio Berruti, Rosario Bruno, Franco Accursio Gulino, Laura Panno, Mauro Di Silvestre, Alessandra Giovannoni, Silvia Camporesi, Cristiano Pintaldi, Bruno Ceccobelli, Andrea Di Marco, Fathi Hassan, Alberto Biasi, Velasco, Paolo Picozza, Mimmo Paladino, Gonzalo Borondo, Emilio Greco, Carin Grudda, Francesco Messina, Francesco Vaccaro and some representatives of the South America like Samy Benmayor, Gianfranco Foschino e Sebastian Yrarrazaval.
