Until September 14th, the Alberta Pane Gallery will host the exhibition “Island Ark” by Marcos Lutyens, an artist engaged for years in interdisciplinary expressiveness, known for his ability to unite cognitive techniques, technology and creativity in the realization of his works. “Island Ark” brings to the stage the inner complexity of the ego and the relationship that each individual has within a community, which now seems to want to hinder the natural balance of the environment and our planet.
Marcos Lutyens’ project, created in collaboration with the l’Accademia Belle Arti di Venezia (Venice), proposes solutions to counteract the rising sea level, thus presenting island structures, deriving from disused oil plants, which can take the place of the real islands, now in danger. The problem of raising water levels involves not only distant places like the Republic of Maldives, the Kiribati and Tuvalu islands, but also Venice, which is subject to numerous floods and floods. The event touches on a sensitive and of great importance, shown to visitors through ceramic works, videos, drawings, audio and maquettes, aimed at creating a utopian imaginary in which everyone can find themselves immersed.
Interesting, creative, reflective and not to be missed!
