Art & Poetry heats engines
Twenty-two weeks of exhibitions, one for each poem, with 132 works that represent them: these numbers summarize the Art & Poetry Project, a project we talked about yet developed and managed by Rosanna Galvani (aka Roxelo Babenco) that August 31 sees the end that the terms of participation and that will see the official opening Thursday, September 22, 2011, at 22.00 CET, at Piazza Plebiscito Napoli in Second Life and the following day, Friday, September 23, 2011, at the Museo del Metaverso in Opensim Craft. For the event six artists (Laura18 Streeter, Panteleimon Aeon, Eva_SL, Loquacia Loon, Crystalship Rehula and Harbor Galaxy) will try to represent poetry “’o pparlà napulitano”, that will be declaimed by the author, poet Carmen Auletta (aka Margye Ryba).
Twenty-two “painted poems” of Carmen/Margye, exhibited in 22 places in virtual worlds, along with 132 works intended to illustrate them: an event that as explainsRosanna/Roxana which takes the form of "the continuation of the activities of Museo del Metaverso, in the already marked direction, in the belief that virtual worlds are spaces, albeit with a strong emotional component, however, suitable for construction of complex cultural events”. The initiative will be immersed in an international dimension, the cross-media and mixed reality, with the activation of a network that, through social networks, virtual worlds and physical locations, will seek partnerships and collaborations with various subjects, internet players like Mondivirtuali.it and the world of culture and art in general.
The first link with a place of art will take place in the second week of exhibitions, specifically from September 29 to October 2, 2011, a period in which a live streaming will be enabled with Cannes, the Croisette, where from 27 June is in progress a personal exhibition of Patrick Moya. In the same day will be a link with Bogota, Colombia, for the presentation of performance by Pyewacket Kazianenko, Kai Steamer and Jo Ellsmere. The initiative aims to focus attention on the art, through poetry, by linking new media art, born and developed in virtual worlds and the Neapolitan dialect poetry, born from the rich vein of contemporary poet Carmen Auletta. Two art forms that arise "from below" who meet in this project, communicating with each other.
“Poetry and art have value in itself, it will be interesting to see the meeting of the two kinds and the story that will emerge”, concludes Rossana/Roxelo. Therefore, “will not be relevant different interpretations of Carmen's poems by the artists (You can see a preview there), will be important only the poems and the works on display and suggestions that they evoke”.
The aim of the project is to let the two kinds talk and watch the story that poetry and art, in this case poetry in Neapolitan language and new media art, will do. We can only recommend to all who are interested in participating (ome places are still available depending on the single poem) to quickly find more information about here. For all other the scheduling of all the exhibitions can be found here while further information can be tracked as well as on Museo del Metaverso blog, on the group on Koinup.com and on Facebook.ShareThis
