The festival focuses on the concept of SURFACES, borders and structures between body, mind and soul, the human identity and the city, the space and the ground. The festival analyzes the idea of human and urban places, how people live them and how they are modified in contemporary society. Every human being lives in a world in which surfaces shape their attitudes and behaviors, limiting freedom and creating a sense of alienation. The man reacts breaking the limits and finding a new way of life. We imagine a world of “liquid bodies and cities“, where differences create new possibilities, developing new structures, physical, intellectual and spiritual. The festival aims to analyze the relationship between body and space, and the hybridization between identities and cultural/physical/social/urban settings in contemporary time.

The BODIES structure is a research about the human physical identity, conceived not only as a material organic system, but also as an evolving organism with peculiar sensations, feelings and characteristics, in constant connection with other bodies and spaces. The human body connects us to the world.

PLACES are connected to the concept of time, memories, borders and disorders. Places are tangible and finite unit of space. We can experience places through body or senses. This division of the festival invites artists and architects to explore new grounds, searching a new vision of contemporary places, related to new human behaviors, city transformations and everyday life needs.

SPACES are abstract, infinite and conceptual. Are associated with a sense of freedom and infinite extension. Primarily experienced with the mind, spaces redefining their limits and borders, transforming surfaces in open flow of pure ideas.

 

Deadline for applications is August 31, 2018 (11.59 PM of your local time)

 

Artists, designers and architects interested in taking part in the festival, are free to be sponsored and supported by institutions, organizations, governments and their representers; the logos of their sponsors will be included in all the communication (digital and print) of the events. Artists, architects and designers are free to take part in one or more programmed events.

 

ITSLIQUID GROUP offers you the possibility to organize presentations, talks, workshops, focusing on your career, statement, research, current and future projects, having meetings in one of our locations, in order to enrich your experience in Venice.
All curatorial and logistic organization of these collaterals and dedicated events will be discussed with our team. Feel free to send us a proposal to lucacurci@lucacurci.com
