Sos Acqua – Sos Water

Un appello. In questo periodo ci stiamo lavando le mani molto spesso ma non dobbiamo dimenticare di non sprecare l’acqua. Non dimenticatelo. L’ACQUA è più preziosa del petrolio. Dobbiamo evitare di trasformare l’emergenza da virus a emergenza ambientale

An appeal. In this period we are washing our hands very often but we must not forget not to waste water. Don’t forget it. WATER is more precious than oil. We must avoid transforming the virus emergency into an environmental emergency

La Biennale Arte 2019 – Appetizer

GRAND DUCHY OF LUXEMBOURG Written by Water. For his contribution to the Biennale Arte 2019, Marco Godinho turns his attention to the ambivalent relationships that mankind entertains with the sea. In Written by Water, he sounds the depths of the Mediterranean Sea as both a territory of real-life adventure and tragedy and a collective imaginary space. Spectators dive into a liquid world of imagination, reflection, and contemplation that encourages them to project their own histories onto a multilayered canvas of constantly changing, seemingly inexhaustible impressions. By staging human learning and remembering as continuous processes of writing, erasing, and overwriting, Written by Water lets viewers experience history as an essentially ungraspable flux of personal and collective destinies

H2O for Peace – iPhoneography for Human Rights

The 22nd of March 2017: the date indicated by the UNO to celebrate World Water Day is precisely when the Fondazione Campana dei Caduti, [Bell of Peace Foundation for Fallen Soldiers] will launch its sensitizing campaign in favour of Water as an Instrument of Peace and Harmony among peoples. The initiative, called H2O for Peace – iPhoneography for Human Rights, features an international photographic competition in collaboration with the NEM – the New Era Museum (a Virtual Museum and International Artistic Movement) which has made specific images captured and revisited by smartphones its philosophy.

The competition ends at the beginning of June with the selection of the finalists and the proclamation of the winner. The works chosen will be screened at the Fondazione Campana dei Caduti, Rovereto and included in a video clip with music by Marco Testoni performed by the Pollock Art-Jazz Project. Along with the photographs selected, visitors may view the video at the Foundation, on the social networks and the web, as well as during international events aimed at highlighting the results obtained and the emotions aroused by the competitors’ works.

H2O for Peace – iPhoneography for Human Rights invites a wide audience of social- networkers to ponder on a highly significant conceptual idea whereby, also according to the UNO, water is life, the sap of human existence. Water is the human Right closest to Life. Sharing the supply of this vital lymph can be assured by dialogue between peoples, the circulation of resources. In brief, peace.

This sensitising campaign has chosen the art which more than any other spells sharing: iPhoneography, that is, a widespread, democratic art which permits people to create images using their smartphones and share them on the internet and the social networks. The enormous potential of this art make it the ideal creative medium for providing the whole world with a means of speaking about an important topic like water. This art, born on the social web, is now examined and studied in for its intrinsic worth and its strongly democratic nature also within traditional photographic environments.

The president of the jury will be Andrea Bigiarini, originator and founder of the Nem. The works will also be adjudicated by: Marco Di Battista, Giancarlo Beltrame, Dilshad Corleone, Davide Capponi.
