Organizing Institutions: Fundación Odalys, Signum Foundation
Venue: Palazzo Donà Brusa, San Polo 2177
Odalys Foundation and Signum Foundation, with the support of the Museo Nacional y Centro de Investigación de Altamira (Ministerio de Cultura y Deporte, Spain), have enabled an intervention project in the Palazzo Donà, Italian headquarters of Signum Foundation, which includes several site-specific projects conceived for different rooms of the Palazzo. A group of four young artists (Ruth Gómez, Nuria Mora, Daniel Muñoz and Sixe Paredes) participates in this initiative through a creation process that has a common characteristic: the desire to share their vision of the world through art. In such a way that these interventions now in the space of the Palazzo could be defined as a set of micronarratives from the personal territory of each artist, a territory that is public -nowbut also unchallenged, because of its historical burden. Artists who have worked on the place, relating each of them a wall/floor or room of Palazzo Donà. The artists have created a work located either on the wall or on the floor, or deployed tridimensionally, avoiding affecting the structural or historical elements of the above mentioned Palace. A multiple work in the interior lobby of the Palazzo, in the form of a large assemblage of images, with images provided by the National Museum and Altamira Research Centre, evokes the Altamira Cave (which is also visited through moving images). The sounds can be found in the solitude of the cave, next to the well of the Palazzo.
