ADRIATIC SIDE, sea and castles in art

The Province of Bari is glad to present, as a partner of the project ADRISTORICAL LANDS, the extraordinary opening of Sannicandro Castle from 7th to 28th October 2013 where all the tourist itineraries of all the countries involved in the Cross Country Project, IPA Adriatic will be shown.

ADRIATIC SIDE: this is the name chosen for the six interventions of the artists summoned by the Province of Bari in the Castle of Sannicandro in Bari. They will have to work on a common theme: the relationship with the Adriatic Sea, the protagonist of the cooperation project. Adristorical Lands, in fact, aims at promoting the usage of the values belonging to both sides of the Adriatic in order to create a common territorial identity for tourism development.

The idea is to valorize the small medieval towns, the walled cities, the castles and the historical dwellings of the involved territories. ”Contemporary art – affirms Nuccio Altieri, Vice President of the Province of Bari – currently permeates all the big capitals of international tourism representing a tangible sign of a universal language that unifies our time. The interaction with the extraordinary past our land is rich of makes of Italy and Puglia one of the most wanted tourist attractions in the world. This is the idea of art and culture that I have been trying to consolidate for four years with Terra di Bari with great results in terms of social and economic growth, because I am sure that tourism and culture – he concludes – are among the most influent tools to relaunch the Country”.

The project’s curator, Fausta Maria Bolettieri, chose and invited six artists coming from Italy, Croatia, Slovenia and Poland: Iva Curic, Marcin Fajfruk, Gasper Jemec, Stefano Romano, Jonalda Spagno, Giuseppe Teofilo. The curatorial declared aim was to make the artists produce a project ad hoc for the exhibition spaces of Sannicandro Castle. A project strictly connected to the Adriatic sea, seen as a fundamental component of the social and economic development of Puglia, the Italian Regions and of all cross countries overlooking this sea and which are directly involved in the project (Albania, Montenegro, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia-Herzegovina). Cooperation will actually be the protagonist of the wonderful manor, through the exhibition of the tourist itineraries of the areas involved in the project. Through the theme of castle and sea, in a cross way, the artists have to interpret the explosive strength of this ”big lake”, but above all the impact it had in contemporary society. The result was the creation inside the huge spaces inside the Castle of a tidy micro climate, thanks to the specific interventions of the artists: each work has its size and space which coexist in a perfectly precarious balance.

INTERVIEW: DAVID PHOENIX

"More than a job, this is my purpose. Sensing, understanding, expressing are the guidelines that have led me to what you will witness in my artwork. As per my personality, my art is a stylistic fusion of encounters and opportunities. Starting with puntinism and arriving to Action Painting and Pouring Painting, I have found my "colourful" way of expressing myself. Passion, a desire to live render my artwork my presentation card. Every single brush stroke, chromatic flexion, line of colour exploded on the canvas, is a part of me." Read more


Uncanny Valley: Being Human in…

Art | November 15, 2020

What are the invisible mechanisms of current forms of artificial intelligence (AI)? How is AI impacting our personal lives and socioeconomic spheres? How do we define intelligence? How do we envision the future of humanity? As technological innovation continues to shape our identities and societies, the question of what it means to be or remain human has become the subject of fervent debate. Taking advantage of the de Young museum's proximity to Silicon Valley, Uncanny Valley: Being Human in the Age of AI arrives as the first major exhibition in the US to explore the relationship between humans and intelligent machines through an artistic lens.

INTERVIEW: EVA MARC’H

Interviews | November 6, 2020

Eva Marc'h began painting at the age of 19 with no artistic training. Her very first paintings revealed the qualities of an inherent artistic gift, including perspective, depth, balance, and especially, color. Painting self-taught for ten years, she was free to explore her talent, allowing for only the expression of her unconscious to guide her many and varied creations. By 2000, she was inspired to participate in formal art study workshops at the School of Fine Arts in Paris, where she learned practice drawing and many other different techniques of painting to enhance her works.
