BAROQUE BLUE Ionian SeArt Residency 2024

THE SPIRIT OF THE SHAMAN AND THE THREE WORLDS OF VISION

When the earth speaks, the shamans listen; when the planet cries, the shamans respond  (Tom Cowan)

Contemporary Arts in the Nature curated by Dores Sacquegna

From 20 to 31 July 2024 - Santa Caterina di Nardò (Lecce, Italy)

___________________

The 3rd edition of Baroque Blue Ionian Se-Art Residency entitled NATURE AND SHAMANIC COMOLOGY in Santa Caterina di Nardò is a multidisciplinary journey between anthropology, archaeology and contemporary art, discovering one's archetype or unique Self in close dialogue with elements of Apulian shamanism. SALENTO is a land of myths, castles and emperors, Dionysian rituals, cults to the Great Mother Earth, dances linked to the myth of TARANTA and shamanic cosmologies whose origins date back to the Neolithic period. The starting point of the project is the pictograph of the dancing shaman depicted in the Grotta Dei Cervi (Deer grotto) in Porto Badisco called the Sistine Chapel of Europe because of its numerous graffiti and the size of the cave. These graffiti represent artistic and spiritual evidence of Neolithic Salento, and the stylized figure of the shaman has over time become the current symbol of Salento.

But what really is shamanism? Who are shamans and what do they do? Can we consider these figures the oldest mediators between humanity and nature?  Shamanism is surely the oldest form of spiritual practice and healing that, through nature, connects humans with all living things in harmony and balance with the laws of nature. Common to almost all traditional shamanic cultures are the vision of non-ordinary reality in the three worlds: the Lower World, the Middle World and the Upper World, connected by a central Axis Mundi, represented by the mythological COSMIC TREE, mediator between the depths of the earth and the heights of the heavens. The roots represent the lower world, the trunk is the middle world, and the branches is the upper world.

By contextualizing shamanism in the contemporary art project, you artist will be a shaman and will be able to make your own journey through ALL OF THEM ( or one of the three worlds described below), in search of your archetype. Through your “vision,” you will feel in tune with the animals and spiritual forces that animate nature and the cosmos, and from them you will obtain your powers. The curator will be at your side discreetly (spirit guide) until you can achieve your goal. You will be able to choose to achieve works that contemplate one or all three worlds at your discretion.

Programs day-by-day only to the participating artists - The residency offers artists, the opportunity to connect the Téchne, the spirit and the idea between shamanism and technology, proposing their art as a life experience, as an immersive sensory exploration through nature, applied to cognitive science.Baroque Blue Ionian Se-Art Residency provides residency opportunities for accomplished and emerging artists/musicians from around the world. It’s the perfect space for creative minds in any medium to engage in cultural interchange and meaningful work that impacts the world for the common good.
