Menotrentuno: an Island of exhibitions

Menotrentuno, the biennial exhibition of European photographers under 31, is now in its fifth edition, and based around the theme terramadre / homeland. The 2016 edition aims to usher in a reflection on the sense of belonging, choice and roots, in the interpretation that is given in the end by the contemporary generations.
The works on display revolve around the awareness that we can only address some of the possible nuances. «No reportage – say the organisers – the boundaries that crumble and the transhumance of people in search of new places that are a salvation; not the big political games and their ruinous relapse at the base of the pyramid of power. The old utopias have remained ruins; the times require the trace of a paradigm that takes into account the new hybridisations. If we must choose - and, to be honest, we want to - then it is the attempt to restore the relationship between man and nature; that both the variation of the regional identity and conquering terrain compared to the national one. That is in short, the singing of the small, of the local, of the peripheral in its most contemporary and authentic dimension».

Therefore, are the outskirts of the continents to compete in Menotrentuno, the jagged edges of a world that is redesigning its own face to learn how to live the earthly brackets not as a painful exile, but as an eternal return. A return towards something that is possible to call home. And the metaphorical home becomes the whole of Sardinia on which in the territory, in eleven municipalities, develop the exhibitions, in a sort of symbolic invitation to rediscover the island with new eyes. The municipalities of Alghero, Arzachena, Bitti, Cagliari, Florinas, Ghilarza, Lodine, Neoneli, Sassari, Villanova Monteleone and Villa Verde, in fact, host the exhibitions.

As part of Menotrentuno five artist residences have also been developed in order to offer a direct contact with the host municipalities for the realisation of the just as many projects. The artists who are involved are Andrea Alfano, who focused on Neoneli in the province of Oristano, Tiziano Demuro and Roberta Masala, who photographed in various places on the island, Mohamed Keita, who worked in Alghero in the province of Sassari, and Serena Vittorini, who instead took photos in Lodine in the province of Nuoro.

As part of Menotrentuno 2016, finally a parallel circuit is also expected, named A.Banda, involving photographers regardless of age or thematic limitations. The forty A.Banda exhibitions, which will be hosted in various locations in Sardinian towns and cities, they want to represent a mirror of how photography can create stories and illustrate the world.
