2012 Culminating Exhibition in Monasterace at Catoio Add’u Padizzu • Mostra Culminante

November 28, 2012

Watching this exhibition unfold itself was a powerful moment as it marked a culmination for residency 2012. The strong resonance between materials, our physical and social environment, and artists’ various sensibilities became stunningly clear after years–an unknown number of years–of reaching across time and space. How gratifying! There is much appreciation for all who have a part in this connecting grace.

La mostra è stato un momento potente e culminante della Residenza 2012. Le varie sensibilità artistiche a confronto si sono meravigliosamente disvelate nella forte risonanza tra i materiali ed il contesto sociale e naturale che questa esperienza ha consentito di raggiungere, toccare ed interpretare dopo la separazione spazio temporale delle singole storie di migrazione familiare degli artisti. Quale gratificazione!…e quale apprezzamento per tutto ciò che ha avuto ed ha parte in una tale esperienza di contatti. (Interpretazione di Laura Santoro)
