Passaggi. Le parole dell’umanità attraverso la cultura ebraica (Passages. The words of mankind through the Jewish culture)

ExhibitionsMuseo Tattile Statale Omero

Multisensorial exhibition curated by Andrea Sòcrati.

Starting a travel through the ancient and rich awesomeness of the Jewish culture to discover an alternative dimension to the present and the daily habits, a dimension to seize for an instant the wonder of the world. “PASSAGES - The words of mankind through the Jewish culture”, is the only big exhibition that from the 31st of August will gather, for an active and direct participation, visitors and tourists who are, as mentioned in the title, passing by ("Passaggi") the port of the city, the stones of the building Mole Vanvitelliana. This exhibition is promoted by the Homer State Tactile Museum and by the Jewish Community of Ancona.
The Western Wall, Kotel in Hebrew, also known as Wailing Wall, is one of the most sacred and important ones in Jerusalem and Israel. Jews go there to pray, to express desires and their most private thoughts. It is right here where the word becomes the threshold, the union of the physical and the spiritual, the human and the divine. The word is no longer just lògos, but it becomes fact, gesture, body, a perception pervading all our senses.
A big fabric patchwork (not a barrier) welcomes us, and wants to be crossed to take us metaphorically through a necessary inner travel to reach a possible different dimension, a fourth dimension that "turns the world upside down", making space for dream and imagination.
This is the purpose of Passaggi, the artwork made by Andrea Socrati. The spiritual and mystic strength of the Western Wall is expressed through the sculptures of Socrati, made of terracotta or plaster works, and through a series of relief thermography; another series of thermographies and installations recall the fantastic and visionary world of Marc Chagall.

Four artists from Jerusalem will exhibit the land, the sounds, the mood of Israel, with four artworks:
Chana Cromer, The Distaff Side, inspired to “La donna di carattere” from Libro dei Proverbi, in line with the XV edition of the European day of Jewish culture (14th September 2014);
Ruth Schreiber, Love letters, letters in porcelain inspired to the letters left in the fissures of the Western Wall of Jerusalem.
Andi Arnovitz, Construct/Destruct. Bricks and stones of the old town remind us the Temple of Salomon.
Neta Elkayan, artist between music and figurative arts, audio titled Abuhatzeira, dedicated to the rabbi El Yaakov Abuhatzeira.
In addition to the artists from Jerusalem, three artists who work in Le Marche will participate and will meet the visitors to tell their stories and present their work: Francesco Colonnelli, Giulietta Gheller e Bruno Mangiaterra.
The adoption of NFC technology for some of the exhibited works will not just enhance their multisensorial aspects, but it will also facilitate the access of the disabled, in line with the aim and the mission of the Homer Museum.

The exhibition is part of the program of the Adriatico Mediterraneo Festival, and it is promoted by the Embassy of Israel in Rome, in collaboration with the Biennale of Jewish Contemporary Art of Jerusalem and the Association "Per il Museo Tattile Statale Omero" Onlus.

Inauguration: Sunday 31st August 2014, h 19:00
Moderator: Ram Ozeri, Responsible of the Biennale of Jewish Contemporary Art of Jerusalem.
With the participation of the singer Maria Grazia Barboni.

Itinerari connettivi (Connective itineraries)

ExhibitionsRoom Tamburi at Mole Vanvitelliana

Curated by Associazione Gino l’Immortale

The exhibition "Connective Itineraries" is created to draw the attention of the audience on the road of research taken by some Italian artists who have become, on the national stage, a sort of "aesthetic hubs" of the global network. Their artworks are made of stories, ideologies, settings of this era and have the common feature of belonging to the global dimension, the dimension in which all the human relations coexist in a single home called world, where geographic, cultural, space and time boarders are set according to a new perspective.
The artworks create an itinerary around the concept of “connection”, understood at different levels, semantic and philosophic. The digitalization of reality and its transfer into the informatic global network - based on the network of human links - creates new scenarios of living in new dimensions where the contemporary is subject to different declinations and semantic contexts. The goal of this exhibition is to find links, hidden and unexpected or ostensibly clear, in the cultural Babel called Contemporary, because art has the capability to manipulate reality using its conceptual forms to create every time something new and to anticipate the direction of soul. In art, nothing is more real than something else and, most of all, nothing is historically faker than something else.

In the exhibition “Connective Itineraries” (23rd of August - 28th of September) we have added a series of conferences concerning art in Le Marche Region during the 70s. The goal is to contextualize the tendencies of contemporary art from the historical point of view, showing that they are actually the result of a recent, flourishing and productive past in our region.

What we firmly believe is that Gino De Dominicis was not born “alone”. In those years in Le Marche, artistic research was spread and shared by several artists who marked the end of a cycle of history, paving the way for the contemporary period.

Our attempt is to rebuild ideas and facts from the point of view of the present, because detachment is the only way to observe reality.

As regards the method, we let artists speak and answer as far as possible the questions posed by experts of other disciplines or by people who shared the overwhelming experience known as avan-garde. On the other hand, some other conferences are focused on the historical and social context in which they were elaborated, and on the philosophical interpretations of contemporary art.

Clouds – Visions of Becoming

ExhibitionsRoom Viani at Mole Vanvitelliana

New boarders of painting
Curated by Arci and Fondo Mole Vanvitelliana

The cloud is not stable, it is pushed by the flows from place to place and in these light movements it becomes another substance, a cloud first, then rain, river, sea, fog and cloud again.
Thought, like clouds, is indefinable and endless, according to the postmodernist philosopher Jean-François Lyotard. That's why modern physics, discovering the concept of time and the concept of transformation that time entails, talks about clouds, according to Popper, comparing them to the stillness of classic physics. And today isn't it still the cloud the metaphor of virtual servers in the ether for the filing of our data? This last example is particularly significant for Clouds,that will take advantage of modern technologies of the network and of its dissemination channels.
The project wants to make art socially mobile, to make it move around the places of everyday life (houses, firms, squares, gym, shops, etc.). Moving around these places it will undergo different ways of active use; the exhibition setting will be an active subject as much as the author. The pieces of art will be alive and visible thanks to those who will show them, exhibiting them in their private spaces. Thanks to them, art can complete its function of social ritual.

Clouds originated from the certainty of the great social, collective and cultural value of art and from the need to experiment new ways to enjoy art, directly, personally, and intimately. It is a collection of a number of pieces of art made by different authors on standard formats and materials (40 x 40 cm on paper), and exhibited in spaces and contexts which are different from the ones typically used for this goal.
In fact these artworks, collected in a box, will travel like clouds towards those who wish to receive them. The use of the Internet and of the social networks will be the vehicle of dissemination, documentation and sharing of the project, whose participants can be painters, collectors, art lovers and curious people. Those interested can ask to receive some or all the artworks, in order to exhibit them in their own spaces. In this way, the spectators are not just visitors and users, but active subjects and an integrating part of the project.
At the end of the exhibition, the person who has participated into the project will put the artworks back in the travel box and send it to the next applicant. Thanks to this modality, the artworks will keep on travelling in different places, through people who request them.

Open all days from 18:00 to 22:00.
Closed on Monday

Dolce terra di Marca
curated by Laura Borgiani, Flavia Emanuelli, Mirella Mazzarini
with 27 original illustrations
publisher: Pequod

cover Dolce terra di MarcaThe folktales maintain in our time the ability to enchant; the many transpositions and transcriptions, the theater, the multimedia, the movies, in which are continually restated testify to their vitality. The tale speaks to the imaginary of the people, offers alternatives to everyday life with an immediate style, basic, linear, suggestive.
Dolce terra di Marca collects the tales of the Marches in the dialect in which they were transcribed from the voice of the people, by scholars such as Antonio Gianandrea, Guido Vitaletti, Luigi Mannocchi, with the help of a current translation in Italian, to make it possible to understand unusual slang terms, sometimes even unknown. The fairy tales concerning the Marche that Italo Calvino has included in his book Fiabe italiane (Folktales Italian), are presented in the original dialect version for take account of their “being of the Marches”.
Each tale is accompanied by reading notes, aimed to grasp with immediacy significant aspects of the same, critical issues and aspects of the local context. The illustrations that accompany them are cured by the students of the International School of Comics in Jesi, who interpreted them with their own sensitivity.
Dolce terra di Marca is a book observant to the culture of the area, to the values of a civilization that the tale tells, in the pleasure of listening and reading. A thorough introduction traces the evolution of studies on the folk tale, aimed at those who know how be passionate about this genre.

Laura Borgiani, Flavia Emanuelli, Mirella Mazzarini, from Marche, have collaborated, for a postgraduate specialization, for a study of analysis about the folk tale of the Marches. Years later, they found themselves again, after different job experiences - a teacher, an official of the cultural heritage, a school manager - to work together about the folktale of the Marche to rediscover its value and vitality. So has came the project to promote awareness and dissemination of a wealth of memory linked to the identity of the Marche.

Botanica arcana / Strange Botany
Moira Egan
bilingual edition, Italian translations by Damiano Abeni

cover Botanica arcanaAfter that the American poetess Moira Egan has fallen in love, has married the translator Damiano Abeni and has moved to Italy, she soon realized that she would no longer have written sonnets as a bad girl, such as Sex and the City, which made her well known, inducing comparisons with the poetess Edna St. Vincent Millay. But what to write? While adapting to her new life, to the Mediterranean, to live with a husband who is a passionate botanist amateur, an idea came to her mind: to follow the example of Marianne Moore, the great poetess who has innovated the American poetry, writing poems in syllabic verses that celebrate everything that is unusual and strange in creatures, in geological formations, in art objects.
In Botany arcana, each poem draws its fundamental metaphor from a plant, a fruit or a Mediterranean flower.
In these poems, Moira Egan celebrates the always deeper familiarity with the wedding oath, as well as with the unusual flavors and new stimuli of the Mediterranean landscape that has adopted her.
Maria Grazia Calandrone wrote: “Egan attacks firsthand with a fun loving botanic feeling: tender, humorous, sad, sardonic, educated and 'American' in quickness, in certain jargon's effects and light lunges on tasty home interiors seen as spying by an ajar door. But nature, translocated in poetry, always contains a metaphorical shift, starting from the ego that acts in the verses.”

Moira Egan was born in Baltimore (USA). She studied at Bryn Mawr College, John Hopkins University, and Columbia University where James Merrill awarded her the David Craig Austin Prize. Her works have appeared in many prestigious magazines in the United States and in several anthologies, including Best American Poetry 2008. Her poems have appeared in translation on Nuovi Argomenti (New Topics) and Lo Straniero (The Stranger). In 2009 she published La seta della cravatta / The Silk of the Tie (L’Obliquo). With Damiano Abeni and Joseph Harrison has published Un mondo che non può essere migliore: Poesie scelte 1956-2007 (A world that can not be better: Selected Poems 1956-2007) (Sossella Editore, 2008), a wide selection of poems by John Ashbery.

Terra madre/terra matrigna (mother earth/stepmother earth) is a performance and a special project for Adriatico Mediterraneo by the duo Interiors (Scherl-Corzani) enhanced by the voice of the Apulian singer Serena Fortebraccio (component, among other things, of the vocal group Faraualla) enriched by the projection of a beautiful documentary on the earth (“Home” by French director Yann Arthus-Bertrand). “Terra Madre Terra Matrigna” is a title that emphasizes the double track of the images of the documentary that are often beautiful, but also ambiguous and sometimes fierce, meaning that tell the debacles caused by humans. On the other side, the title also fits to the accompanying sound that will be made of acoustic sounds and "betrayals" of the acoustic sound, of angelic voices and devilish voices, of ancestral beats that can be connected to the concept of mother earth and crooked, restless, limping rhythms that remind and suggest instead a concept of stepmother earth.

Music and poetry between sky and sea

Federico Paolinelli, piano
Renata Morresi, voice

The piano of Federico Paolinelli and the poetry of Renata Morresi together for a show dedicated entirely to the sea.
The music of Paolinelli is an attempt to go "beyond" and to express feelings and emotions through music, which are part of everyone's life and are difficult to express in any other way. The search of an elsewhere, the out of proportion of freedom, the absence of physical limitations.
These are some of the many elements that make up the flight through the piano of Federico Paolinelli. Who wants to take the updraft of the notes has the chance to live music at a multidimensional level where sea and sky can be confused easily.
The scenario of the poetry of Renata Morresi is for anything metaphysical, but “crostoso assolato, popoloso popolato” (crusted sunny, populous populated), not forgetting the material truth which designates the very human differences and the inhuman injustice (above all: those that affect migrants), and also opened and mysterious to the possibility of other orders and metamorphosis beyond-human. In this space are moving, loose, beings almost interchangeable extremely small, the distant eras, fossils and extraterrestrials, octopuses and turtles, humans “like hair on the body of the case”, and the voice of who writes, floating with them.
