Ruoli Segreti e Ruoli Proibiti / Hidden & Forbidden Identities | Venice (Italy)

General Information.
In the prestigious spaces of Palazzo Albrizzi in Venice starts Ruoli Segreti e Ruoli Proibiti / Hidden & Forbidden Identities, an international video art festival and photography exhibition which opens the doors on Saturday, February 11th at 17:30 with a musical interlude by Enzo Caroli and Simone Rocchi. Fifty-one video artists and twenty-eight photo artists from thirty different countries have been selected to be part of this project.

The event, organized by TheSeven and International ArtExpo, will be divided into three sections: a photography exhibition that reflects the concept of the Carnival in a pluralist conceptual view. A video art festival indoor that will be screened every day in the afternoon in different places in Venice. Outdoor screenings entitled Architetture Velate / Architecture in Disguise with the works of five artists that cover the substance of the buildings with a second calligraphy skin.

The selections have been based on the main concept of “Hidden & Forbidden Identities
“Whoever might believe to understand a phenomenon without knowing its background, loses the opportunity to cope with an instructive manual about the sense or nonsense of masking. This is even more true in relation to an event whose psychological, religious and ethnographic implications represent a real source of studies and virtuosity of the soul and of the body. We should remember that in the myths of different world cultures, the tribes in Africa, various peoples in Asia, in North America, in Europe, the mask has a double matrix: it is connected with an archetype of the human soul, with aggression, and on the other hand, it is correlated with the essential passage during an initiation ritual of death and life. What has remained of these myths and of past archetypes in our everyday disguise? Carnival means mask, Carnival means to disguise, and Carnival permits any kind of funny odd things. Whoever feels a sudden desire to change, himself or his environment, from any point of view, is mature for Carnival.” Elis Saint Juste Gluckstein, 2011

Contaminante
– For the Upcoming Thought is the provoking title of a project, conceived and curated by TheSeven, which represents a contemporary story in twelve chapters situated in twelve different sites in the City of Venice and in its Lagoons. The connection of all these places is a manual for an intriguing alternative journey into literature, into the world of fairy tales which gets materialized through art, design and architecture. The updated map of Contaminante offers permanent site-specific art works realized by international artists in ten sites throughout 2012.
