"The idea of the border belongs in a constructive manner to the art field and its territories. Art is always the temptation, the proposal, the attempt of a trespassing." --- Achille Bonito Oliva
The Curatorial Collective composed by the students of the sixth edition of the Luiss University Master of Art - First Level University Master, under the guidance of Achille Bonito Oliva (Scientific Responsible of the Master), presents the exhibition SUBLIMINA.
The exhibition, organized and supported by the Capitale, Councillorship to the cultural growth unwind from the 15th of December to the 10th of January in the charming spaces of Porta San Sebastiano.
The project aims to give visual form to a reflection on the concept of a border in a historical moment in which the question of the insurmountability and redefinition of old and new geopolitical borders is manifested in all its criticality.
The Museo delle Mura in Porta San Sebastiano, one of the largest and best preserved areas of the Aurelian Walls built in the III century A.D., the border of the city of Rome, osmotic barrier of exchange and defense, becomes the ideal place to host SUBLIMINA.
The randomness of the boundaries, signs marked by man to create a demarcation between the self and the other, are being investigated by the curatorial collective through the works of fifteen artists active on both the national and international panorama. The current theme of boundary is addressed not only in its geopolitical component, but also in it's anthropological and philosophical component.
The works, making use of multiple languages, give visual form to this idea of border: reconstructing it, narrating it or simply invoking it. A fluid path through the spaces of the ancient walls between video and sound installations, pictures, paintings and sculptures of: Liu Bolin, Silvia Camporesi, Loris Cecchini, Luca di Luzio, Kaarina Kaikkonen, H.H. LIM, Eva Marisaldi, Marzia Migliora, Fiamma Montezemolo, Ariel Orozco, Alessandro Piangiamore, Pietro Ruffo, The Cool Couple, Glenn Weyant and Marco Maria Zanin.
The exhibition also includes works by: Calori and Maillard - Giulio Delvè - Luana Perilli, the three finalists of the first edition of the Contemporary Generation International Prize.
