“To date, there are about 70 countries in conflict around the world, where those who lose their lives are mostly civilians, sacrificial victims of wars between the powerful. An oppressed people, even an oppressed person, must be in our everyday concerns and actions.
If politics does not defend them, it means that it will never defend any of us, so we must always be ready to fight the indifference that pervades us, we must be ready to go beyond the pile of rubble’.
OLTRE, the site-specific installation proposed by artist A.D.Guardigli for the 4th edition of the Seven International Contemporary Art cycle, will remain on display until a later date.
The work, with its enormous visual impact, was created with the aim of sweeping the spectator into a vortex of emotions capable of breaking through the indifference in which each of us hides. It announces itself violently as a thunderbolt: a veritable pyramid of broken dreams, of broken lives, of speeches left unfinished, the ‘narrative of our time’, the artist emphasises, ‘where each of us is “strenuously involved as both victim and perpetrator”.
