In the light of current times, the Foundation is broadening its field of exploration to include ecological issues through a series of online and live conversations “Word of Makers: facing the ecological crisis”. Artists, scientists and searchers are invited to question today’s world and create new narratives to draw more desirable futures.
Thursday, October 28 from 7 pm to 8 pm*
Rossella Biscotti (1978, Italy) graduated from the Accademia di Belle Arti (Naples) and the Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten (Amsterdam). She uses montage as a gesture to reveal individual narratives and their relation to society. In her cross-media practice, cutting across filmmaking, performance and sculpture, she explores and reconstructs social and political moments from recent times through the subjectivity and experiences of individuals often posed against the backdrop of institutional system. Traces of people’s life, objects and ideas are sensibly weaved together into new visual narratives.
The most recent and long-term project The Journey, started in 2016, connects scientific research, oceanography and environmental datas of a marble bock from the Carrara quarry in Italy into the Mediterranean sea (between Italy, Tunisia, Libya and Malta).
