Art installations by international artists regenerate a Roman archaeological site

About

Epicentri is a project based on a concept of natural order and its exact opposite.

This allows to reflect on the extraordinary when the anomaly is normal. This idea of chaos rejects the harmony of nature and is a prodigious event although this is a destructive entity.

The earthquake reveals the atavistic conflict between the exception to the rules of nature and  an  inexplicable-complex order.

The archaeological site of Terme di Como Romana  according to recent studies showed traces of an earthquake that caused a structural collapse. Terme di Como Romana become the scene of a collective representation through a process of instinctive-topographic appropriation by each artist. The result is a temporary settlement, an opportunity to regenerate the space by a subjective, nomadic or accidental act.

The exhibition’s title alludes to this possibility, without a default set-up to explain the chaotic disruption of any equilibrium. The dialogue with the space produces creative epicenters spread or thickened, without knowing the outcome of the exhibition.

An emotional map links the force of the natural phenomenon to creative process that suddenly emerges from the unexpected and the extraordinary unconscious.

As part of the exhibition Giulia Berra and Lucia Veronesi present two site-specific projects.

Epicentri is an exhibition promoted by MiBACT – Soprintendenza Archeologia della Lombardia and Ark Cultural Property and Contemporary, supported by Touring Club Italiano and the Touring Volunteers for Cultural Heritage, in partnership with Valduce Servizi, spa.
