ArTVision in Venice

ArTVision in Venice: art, culture and development policies

Art, culture and development policies in Venice, the city that last week hosted two important events under the auspices of ArTVision, an European project that supports contemporary art in the Adriatic region through activities ranging from audiovisual productions to the setting up of exhibition projects, and also encourages young artists and promotes their works by means of innovative transmedial channels.

The first event was the Future Search Conference on Wednesday the 17th and on Thursday the 18th, a two day conference organized by the Veneto Region and structured on the basis of participatory planning, during which cultural operators from all the countries participating in the project – Albania, Montenegro, Croatia, Italy (Puglia and Veneto) – convened to discuss about their own experiences, setting out the strong and the weak points of the systems in which they work and sharing some recommendations for the development of culture and art.

Within the ArTVision project, the Future Search Conference represented a starting point as well as a point of arrival at the same time. It was the final point of an analysis activity, done by the people operating in the field of culture in the geographical region concerned, in which questionnaires were provided, and was followed by in-depth interviews to those people who stood out for their “best practice”, identified by the partners as territorial excellences taking into consideration the quality of the measures adopted and the encouragement of international collaboration.

Such excellences convened in Venice to meet the experts in development policies and the ArTVision partners, providing interesting insights for the planning of sustainable forms of cultural cooperation in the Adriatic region.

It was a multilateral discussion in which, starting with the analysis of the scenario, of the artistic production and promotion, and of the audience development, new potential forms of co-operation between institutional and cultural actors have been identified and the main instruments underlying a shared type of planning have been considered.

The second event, on Thursday the 19th of December, was organized by the Academy of Fine Arts of Venice and consisted in a press conference launching the 4th round of the travelling exhibition of contemporary art “ART IN PORT / Coexistence: for a new Adriatic koinè”.

The exhibition, which was opened in the evening of the 20th of December at Magazzino del Sale n° 3, the Academy’s exhibition room (Dorsoduro 264, Zattere), will continue until January 17th (11:00-18:00, closed on Tuesdays, free entrance) and will move from January 31st to Polignano a Mare (BA) at the Museo Pino Pascali for the final round.

Artvision #logbook 4

We have now entered into the heart of the arTVision project, after a first week of orientation and organization. During the second and third week, we followed the shooting of the exhibition "Objet Perdu" held at the "Pascali" Foundation in Polignano a Mare.
For us it was a great opportunity, since we could attend and participate in the various stages that make up an exhibition, such as the setting up of the works by the artists and the realization of a work of art. The preparation of the shooting with Nicolai Ciannamea, through a well planned work of direction that would serve to create a common thread with the following stages, and the help of a professional camera was very interesting.

The first day of work in Polignano focused, on the one hand, on the illustration of the path conceived by the curator Roberto Lacabonara, on the other hand, on the story of the artists involved in the exhibition: Nico Angiuli, Fabrizio Bellomo, Pierluigi Calignano, Raffaella Formenti, Paola Pezzi and Antonella Zazzera. On the opening day, we could see the work that seemed incomplete on the first day finally finished and we witnessed the second part of the work, i.e. the artworks on show, ready to be admired by visitors. This time, thanks to Michele Roppo and Santa Nastro, we analyzed the details of the shooting and continued the work of the previous day. Another interesting experience was the shooting of the making up of art catalogs, with the help of professional cameras and studio lights. The third week, we worked at the headquarters of the artvision project in Tecnopolis, where we started to learn the various editing techniques and stages. Another interesting experience was the carrying out of a proposal by Ciannamea, namely the creation of some videos, made by us, to be broadcast on the arTVision channel.

Artvision #logbook 3

On Friday, December 5, at 19 p.m., the exhibition "Objet Perdu". Discorsi sul metodo by Roberto Lacarbonara opened in Polignano a Mare. The opening took place in the beautiful location of the Pino Pascali Museum Foundation, whose headquarters is in the former slaughterhouse of the city, located to the south, along the waterfront, and overlooking the sea. Thanks to the skilful work of Michele Roppo, Santa Nastro and Nicolai Ciannamea, my colleagues and I had the occasion to know the artists personally, interacting with them and interviewing them, thus experiencing the poetic essence of the exhibition.

Six internationally renowned Italian artists, Nico Angiuli, Fabrizio Bellomo, Pierluigi Calignano, Raffaella Formenti, Paola Pezzi and Antonella Zazzera. The artists invited, though through personal means of expression, used primary materials, thus highlighting and recalling the intensity, expressiveness and mastery of Pino Pascali.

The exhibition celebrates the lost objects, and, according to Roberto Lacarbonara's words "all those entities that only loss (missing/distance) makes clear, present, pressing. And the difference between a subject and an object of art is all in this relationship between loss and memory [...]. Art, in short, is a process in memory, an investigation on time, a self in the mirror, who tries to understand who is there on the other side of space and time". As a consequence, through the lost object, the exhibition features no longer a body separate from the exhibition place, but a subjective, private and intimate place.

The artist Pierluigi Calignano (Gallipoli, Lecce, 1971) teaches painting at the Academy of Fine Arts in Sassari.

He is currently working on the idea of recovering scraps of wood from the basement of the Pascali Museum, in order to create spatial geometric structures. The site-specific installation Natural Transitions of experience (wood, steel 253 x 662 x 4 cm) is the result of a sinking among the remains, the waste, the parts expelled from the system design and the memory itself. Through a primary shape, the artist goes beyond the boundaries of geometry and carefully creates new places.

Raffaella Formenti (Brescia, 1955) graduated from the Brera Academy of Fine Arts in Milan in 1989. Lives and works in Brescia. Her works focus on the web and her invasive installations convey the frailty of the human condition with irony. Che NE SO Quali Nord Est Sud Ovest, (advertising materials, ambient installation) is made of packaging card and advertising images. The artist, through a mental geography, traces a path where you lose  orientation.

Antonella Zazzera (Todi - Perugia, 1976) studied at the Pietro Vannucci Academy of Fine Arts in Perugia. In 2005 she was awarded the "Premio Giovani - Scultura" by the National Academy of San Luca in Rome. The work on show Armonico C (copper wire, 100 x 120 x 15 cm each) is a combination of copper wires, metal layers and intense light vibrations. The artist shapes the work personally and combines the tones created by the copper with the sparkles of the sea, so that the work gives way to the rigidity of form, while conveying, on the contrary, a feeling of softness.

Paola Pezzi (Brescia, 1963) attended the Brera Academy of Fine Arts, following courses taught by Zeno Birolli and Luciano Fabro. Her works are included in important collections. The work, from the series Feltri (felts and trimmings, various sizes), reflects the artist's poetics through compression and rebound, collection and sedimentation. The felts retain strength, density, all with a vibrant evocation of childhood memories.

Nico Angiuli (Bari, 1981) studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome, Bari and at IUAV in Venice. His experience is direct and physical. The work Scala (sand and resin, 550 x 55 cm) is a large rope ladder, covered with sand, and represents a philosophical investigation on the non-finished and a memory of maritime activity. The discovery of texts by Pino Pascali (notebooks, drawings, notes) and the dialogue with artists, gallery owners and friends are at the origin of Angiuli's research.

Fabrizio Bellomo (Bari, 1982) is an artist, curator and director. His photographic and audiovisual works and installations have been exhibited in Italy and abroad in solo and group exhibitions. Through VD (8.6 x 10.8 cm snapshots), the artist relies on the creativity of the children of the kindergarten S. Caterina in Foligno, who made drawings using what they had at their disposal. The children portrayed objects of their daily life: desks, chairs, baskets, blackboards. The artist naturally draws from all this to reconstruct the meaning and measure of things.  The result is a Polaroid, a snapshot that fixes a point of view and keeps it forever.

ArTVision week in Venice

A week in the heart of art, organized by Veneto Region and the Academy of Fine Arts of Venice

A week full of events for the project ArTVision in Venice. It starts with the Future Search Conference on December 17th (Fondamenta S. Lucia Cannaregio, 23 - Meeting Hall) and 18th (Academy of Fine Arts, Dorsoduro 423). Two whole days to bring out ideas, proposals and projects, to allow future sustainability of arTVision transmedia channel. The event, using a participatory planning methodology, involves project referents, stakeholders and 5 best practices within cultural policy, selected by each project area.

The ArTVision week in Venice goes on with the Coexistence Press Conference on December 19th at 12 am at Magazzino del Sale n° 3 (Academy of Fine Arts), in order to present to media the Venice stage of the traveling exhibition “ART IN PORT / Coexistence: for a new Adriatic koiné”. Venice is the fourth of the five stages of the exhibition which involves artists from the five partner countries of the project (Albania, Montenegro, Croatia, Italy - Veneto and Puglia), working together to give voice to art, to multiply its visions, to create a narration with many voices, connected together into a large Adriatic and transmedia network.

The exhibition runs from 20th December 2014 to 17th January, 2015 at Magazzini del Sale (Dorsoduro 264, Venice). Opening hours: from 11am to 6pm - Fixed day off: Tuesday - Free entry. The last stage will be Polignano a Mare from January 31st to March 1st , 2015.

The core idea is to establish a strict dialogue among cross-border nations through a set of cultural actions, aimed at finding out commonalities and discontinuities among people sharing “Mare Nostrum”, the Adriatic Mediterranean. One exhibition and five versions of it, in different locations and territories, to state the concept of a new linguistic koinè, capable of translating the dynamics of relationship, open-mindedness and comparison into territorial identities.

“ArTVision – A live art channel” is funded by the European IPA Adriatic CBC Programme 2007/2013, with the purpose to activate and connect the creative energy of young artists invited to participate as protagonists. It is a pilot project, led by Puglia Region - Area Policies for the Promotion of Territory, Knowledge and Talent, with technical support from the Apulia Film Commission Foundation, which involves: Pino Pascali Foundation Museum of Contemporary Art; Veneto Region - Cultural and Performing Arts Section; Academy of Fine Arts of Venice; Ministry of Culture of Montenegro; Faculty of Dramatic Arts of Cetinje – Montenegro; Ministry of Culture of Albania; University of Arts of Tirana - Albania; Primorje-Gorski Kotar County – Croatia; Kanal RI – Croatia.

arTVision #logbook 2

A few days ago, I started my first  learning by doing experience within the project "ArTVision. A live art channel",which promotes innovation in interactive, cultural and inter-institutional communication among Adriatic and European countries.  In particular, each  partner involved  has created  a TV crew made up of tv journalists, specialised technicians and young artists. All these creative people are working together, coordinating their efforts. They are creating high quality and original contents, such as documentaries, programmes, reports and interviews, whose formats can be adapted and transmitted through television channels, museum networks and new media.

On our first day - after formal introductions at Technopolis headquarters with our tutor Nicolai Ciannamea, the chief editor of arTVision Apulian Tv Crew, and Santa Nastro, an art critic and journalist involved in arTVision as an editor -  my colleagues and I had the opportunity to know some of the main goals of the programme.

It was the occasion for a reasoned synthesis of a learning by doing programme,  in which it is necessary to analyze events, learning occasions, moods, emotions, doubts, questions and insights and, therefore, develop a continuous reflection on what you are experiencing. The activities of  our programme include our involvement in the shooting of video documentaries dedicated to contemporary art, exhibitions, interviews with artists, and an analysis of the following assembly sessions. Very important is the field work, i.e. to follow the crew, to assist cameramen and use the necessary tools.

This experience will be significant only if we will be able to observe the reality in which we are moving. We observe in order to know and understand. We observe who, what, how, where.

Days ago, we started to have this kind of approach and, above all, we experienced a first direct intervention on the field, since we followed Santa Nastro and the cameraman Michele Roppo, who went to Barletta to shoot a video of  the exhibition "Contemporary Challenge".

As soon as we arrived at the Castle of Barletta, we witnessed Michele Roppo and Santa Nastro while shooting a video featuring  the Councillor for Culture of the city of Barletta, Giusy Caroppo.

After that, inside the Castle, we had the opportunity to use the technical tools at our disposal and film the installation "The Warriors of Beauty" by Pierre Coulibeuf, made up of two screens and projected on the walls of the Castle, and the installation "De Bello Naturae", an art project that involves Peter Campus, Kathleen Graves and Antonio Trimani.

All this has provided us with a first guide to the acquisition of practical skills and techniques within the ambit of television and cultural information.

arTVision #logbook 1

Di)Sfide Contemporanee is the title of one of the stages of the project Rievocare in mostra, funded by the Apulia Region and supported by the Province BAT and by the City of Barletta, featuring the artists Pierre Coulibeuf, Elastic Group of Artistic Research, Raffaele Fiorella and Igor Imhoff. The title alludes both to the theme of the conflict and to the challenge, dealt with by the two exhibitions  through a creative and innovative use of new technologies.

The Castle of Barletta hosts three installations or audio-visual works on the occasion of the celebrations of the Challenge of Barletta: The Warriors of Beauty by Pierre Coulibeuf, From Milk to Z by the duo Elastic Group, and the 3D installation Idle Status by Raffaele Fiorella and Igor Imhoff; though sometimes similar to a mapping, since, according to precise parameters, it dematerializes the real architecture of the castle through images of high spectacular impact, actually, the Apulian artists' work is a powerful graphic tale, built on a mixture of geometrical-symbolic elements: even in this case, the challenge becomes a pretext for a broader discussion: the chaotic and intentionally unstable texture, combined with continuous interferences of the/in the images, which sometimes disturb the projection, evoke a conflict that is not only narrative (the historical event in itself) but also ludic and technological (the language of video games, analogic vs. digital)

Pierre Coulibeuf, a French filmmaker and artist, presents his movie on two screens Les Guerriers de la beauté (2002), centred on the imagery of another artist, Jan Fabre, whose theatrical universe is here revisited. The halls of a fortress in Antwerp (Fabre's birthplace) seem to extend inside the castle of Barletta in an ideal time-space continuity/contiguity. The installation is accompanied by a few pictures taken from the same movie. The choreographic transposition of the conflict, which follows a timeless historicity in the work by Coulibeuf, on the contrary becomes, in the work by Elastic Group, From Milk to Z, a struggle between art and nature, form and matter: indeed,  this striking single channel installation features a materialization of images, which produces a kind of video sculpture, a magmatic architecture in progress.

The Civic Picture Gallery of the Castle hosts the exhibition "De bello naturae" by the American artists Campus and Graves, a video artist and a photographer, who investigate the darkest aspects of nature. Campus' pixelizations show the trembling image of docked boats and waters in motion; the psycho-emotional vision leads the viewer to reflect on what digital art means today. More linear, though equally progressive, are the photos by Graves, which immortalize the feet of a nature too much oppressed. Animals are fenced, plants are surrounded and limited. The constant pattern is that of concentric ellipses, similar to a peacock's eyes, while the dominant shade of colour is the emerald green, whose backgrounds give brilliance and vanity to the narcissism here immortalized.

"La spada e la battaglia” is the other exhibition set at Palazzo Della Marra in Barletta, a new representation of the famous Challenge of Barletta through paintings, swords and objects.
A really important piece is the sword: it is said that the sword on show really belonged to Ettore Fieramosca, whose name is engraved on the front-side. Coming from the National Museum of Capodimonte, the sword, carved and finely adorned, represents the core of the exhibition, thanks not only to the character to whom it belonged, but also to the characteristics that make it unique in its kind, such as the section of the cruciform knob and the proportions of its ornaments, which make it elegant. Furthermore, the sword is accompanied by other defence weapons, on show in the room on the first floor of the Palazzo Della Marra, which come from Ferdinando Cafiero's collection of weapons, kept in the Civic Museum of Barletta. Spikes, halberds and spades are only some of the typologies present and represent a typical example of the pole weapons used by soldiers of fortune during the continuous battles that saw our territories as fields of dispute between the Spanish and French army. There are also helmets, armours and shields from Cafiero's collections, to which also a large part of the furniture, handworks and paintings belong, which make up the room that ideally represents the studio of the Great Captain Gonzalo de Cordoba.
