ARTIST'S RESIDENCE The idea of the artist residence was born in the summer of 2022, thanks to the collaboration with the Ravenna sculptor Laura Pagliai who, fascinated by the botanical garden and the sea of Ponza, organizes an exhibition of her sculptures "en plein air" . The availability of Dr. Biagio Vitiello stimulates the idea of a fusion between the love of art and the passion for nature, the landscape and the island of Ponza, Italy. From this meeting was born the Ponza LandArt project, in its 1st edition in 2023, which aims to create an open-air museum of contemporary art that is enriched every year with new works, bringing together two not so distant worlds, art and nature. From each artist's own art, works will be born that will enhance the botanical heritage of the Ponziano garden, creating a unique and harmonious artistic journey with the delicacy of the island's biodiversity. THEME OF THE 1st edition Ponza LandArt 2023 - THE GARDEN IN THE GARDEN The sensory experience that accompanies anyone who enters a garden is something unique and personal. You are catapulted, together with your soul, into a space full of sensations, images, smells and emotions. In this place of reflection, which also represents an intimate world where you can find serenity or face your anxieties, you can get lost and find yourself. It is a "garden within a garden", not only physical, but also internal, in which each of us can reflect and find the right stimulus to better face our own personal journey. This situation of solitude should not be understood in a negative sense, but rather a pleasant opportunity to be alone in nature, away from the distractions of everyday life. The care and attention towards these magical, physical and intimate places, forced to face the passage of time, the establishment of schemes, prejudices, expectations and social constraints that can preclude their opening, covering it with useless and harmful weeds, it leads us to rediscover that piece of life within us, perhaps a little forgotten. Taking care of it, facing the seasons and the changes that time brings with it, makes us aware that we can go towards the best springs and carefree summers, but also long and dark winters and autumns that taste of melancholy. By accepting these passages, knowing that nothing lasts, nothing is finished, nothing is perfect and being aware of the transience and imperfection of things, it makes us appreciate the old and the faded like a flower beyond its flowering, it brings us to the state of serenity and harmony within us.
