Group Exhibition in Rome or Milan city. May 2022

-

Thoughts, ideas, perceptions and emotions can be conveyed through tools capable of leaving a trace of our experience on this Earth. All this happens in a more or less conscious, rationalized and programmed action, as we communicate our way of being in the world and our way of perceiving it. Signs, traces, images and stories convey here a meaning of explicit opening up, and the more personal and intimate side of the narrator emerges from it, with the aim of creating a communication channel and therefore a channeling of knowledge, empathy and union with others. All this being useful also for the sole work of introspection and self-analysis. As many artists have shown from the end of the 19th century to today - from painting to photography - the media adopted by art prove to be useful for this purpose.

CONTEMPORARY EX VOTOS

Exhibition & Art Residency

Palmieri Foundation, Lecce Italy

Art Residency: from 2021 November 26 to December 5

Exhibition: From 2021 December from 4 to 17

Curated by Dores Sacquegna

Preview

In the ex-votos, simple but energetic objects, the tacit alliance with the divine is materialized individually, without mediation, to strengthen mankind in the fight against the inevitable suffering of living. The ex votos testifies to an expectation that has not been disappointed, that particular "grace received" that has brought daily life back within the norm, but it is also an act of supplication and gratitude at the same time. They speaks a simple language that still retains an immense visual seduction today. From the ex votos that reproduce anatomical parts, to the multi-material ones, made with different techniques, from small devotional objects to painted tablets, these strange objects have crowded shrines and altars of churches for centuries. A tradition that seems to have been lost.

The ex-votos, which over the centuries has represented a form of devotion and bond with the divine, now represents for the artist the means to get in touch with own talent, the inspirational muse, and also, to thank for the gift of creativity received.

Elagibility

We work in collaboration with a talented network of publishers, dealers, curators and arts professionals, providing artists with customized services and opportunities to have their works exhibited, published and represented through various platforms and magazines. The exhibition is open to worlwide artists invited to present one or more works in any form, material and genre.

Venue Exhibition

The contemporary art exhibition set up at the renaissance venue of Palmieri Foundation (deconsecrated Church of Saint Sebastian) in Lecce. This place establishes a dialogue with the ancient works of sacred art that brings the themes of devotion and votive tradition back into the contemporary world.

Art Residency

In addition to the exhibition, there is the possibility of making an art residency in Lecce. The artists will be guests for about 10 days, during which they will create the works site-specific and to be exhibited at the foundation. Artists interested in the residency must notify us by October 20th, so that we can guarantee accommodation.

  • Printed Catalog of the show with all works published and Critical texts in Italian and English version
