Open Studio with Vincenzo Fagnani and Tana Santos
Please join us for an open studio with visiting artists, Vincenzo Fagnani and Tana Santos (currently living and working in Berlin). Vincenzo & Tana will present a large body of work installed around the Popps compound and beyond that focuses on the relationship between symbols, ethics and public spaces.
This works is part of a larger project titled, “The Sea After Crisis: Reality is amorphous. Ethics is graphics”.
From Pre-Hellenic cultures until today humans have been determining a number of ethical geometries that survived and strengthened over the most significant epochal changes, above all the accession of monotheism. Those geometries also represent the basis of a social model which imposed its will worldwide over the past centuries.
“The sea after crisis” is a project about the dynamics of moral structures and the role of graphics in society. It is a long trip across etymology and symbology narrated through visual paradoxes, poster campaigns and art interventions to realize in three emblematic cities: Detroit (United States), Buenos Aires (Argentina) and Athens (Greece). The experiences made in those cities will be then collected in a single book.
Some of Vincenzos published works can be found at Printed Matter.
