Venice Art House 2015 edition MOVE WITHOUT MOVING – Art and artists dedicated to a project aimed to patients of movement disorder is linked to the health’s theme ad especially to the sicknesses which involve movement disorder.
Using a pictorial metaphor “purchase strong shades” embracing humanitarian contents and solidarity, that concern a wide part of the population. On this thematic base, after the success met in the previous editions from the Venice Art House, it’s been some months since artists from the whole world are invited to take part to MOVE WITHOUT MOVING with their experience, technic and several creativity, that the organizers intend to offer in the friendliest and more accessible way. The work started in 2015 is especially important for the social implications that are the project’s basis. The efforts tend to emphasize and stimulate, through the evocative strength of art, a debate already alive and significant about the insertion and on the aid for people who suffers from movement disorder.
In the Ca’ Zanardi Palace, an historical mansion from the XVI century situated in a strategical position in the lagoon city in the Sestiere of Cannaregio, took place a residential period in March and April : the curator Andrea Chinellato has invited four groups of artists, each one week, to reside in the Palace and to produce their own work in loco.
Works done will become a part of a collective exhibition, which will take place in the
Venice Art House Space, a brand new place for exhibitions characterized by two big water doors that look onto the Fondamenta della Misericordia in the Sestiere of Cannaregio, crowded by students and academic teachers and globally by “cicchetti” and wine lovers, attracted by many joints and taverns.
The opening is the 3rd of September, co-administered with the 56th Venice’s Biennale of Visual Arts (in program from the 9th of May until the 22nd of November 2015) in the period in which the city is animated by big events as the International Exhibition of Cinematographic Art, the Literary award Il Campiello, the Historical Regate during which the main part of the media’s attention is focused on the venetian cultural life.
The opening will see Tony Esposito’s participation, with the double role of painter and musician, one of the first artist to have confirmed his own presence, as he will present a musical performance, together with the famous artist Mark Kostabi.
Another initiative’s fundamental moment is the 25th of September, the day next to the closing of the exhibition, when the dinner of gala will be set up, where it is planned the auction which will put in sale the artists’ creations in order to collect the most funds possible so as to use them in the most useful and concrete way, devoid of any logical demagogy. They will be destined to Maria Elena and Marta, two kids who suffer from spastic tetraparesis, and who are the charity fair’s protagonists too. On the base of Alberto Toso Fei’s texts, indeed, it is planned the publication of a book, in which the illustrations have been actually realized by Maria Elena and Marta with the aid of the artist Roberta Coldel, who will take care of the book’s production. This publication too, in which the kids attracted by paintings and figurative art actively contribute to, will be a resource for the economical target that Andrea Chinellato and the whole VeniceArtHouse: MOVE WITHOUT MOVING staff have set in this event.
VeniceArtHouse, thanks to the success to the formula of the artist’s residency it has met, as it is contextualized into the venetian reality, wants to create constructive rapports and with tangible utility with the Associations that take care of the movement disorder and more globally with the Association for the common good. To sum up, the first goal that this project follows, with the coordination to the other subjects mentioned above, is to increase the status of art as a way of making up to the lack of movement. What is a work of art, if not an approach through it is possible to travel, live emotions, and to share them in confront of the others, just like a good book or good music?
The thematic proposed, from a certain point of view, is not easy to deal with concrete suggestions. Moreover, the most important pharmaceutical houses involve a lot of resource and research to increase and to solve the conditions to who suffers from pathologies linked to motion, as a lot of Associations and initiatives of quality are, that are proposed in this field.
MOVE WITHOUT MOVING wants to make grow the value of the possibility to put in a practical way, without the fear of creation and the appreciation of the art, essential value for a more free, impartial and multiethnic society. There are a lot of ways to live art and to feel its positive impact: it is possible to make art, to speak about art or to look at art. All of these approaches are crucial to spread and to share experience. Encourage the dialog about art helps to a better understanding of a work and to knock down the frontier between the artist, his creativity, and his potential spectator.
