The installation will be inaugurated on Wednesday, Nov. 30, in the presence of the artist. The project, winner of the 5th edition of the Italian Council, will be discussed in depth through a discussion with the artist together with Raffaella Frascarelli, scientific director of Nomas Foundation, promoter of the project, and Letteria Grazia Fassari, professor at La Sapienza University in Rome.
Filippo Berta's One By One is a project realized by Nomas Foundation, Giorgia Calò, Francesca Ceccherini in collaboration with Sapienza University of Rome, GAMeC Galleria d'Arte Moderna e Contemporanea di Bergamo and Tools for Culture, made possible thanks to the support of the Fifth Edition Italian Council MiBACT Directorate General for Contemporary Creativity and Urban Regeneration.
The aesthetic, sociocultural and political action of One By One reworks the sociocultural and historical imagery of geo-ideological barriers and territorial borders made and/or implemented in Europe, Asia, North America after the fall of the Berlin Wall. Beginning with a series of journeys begun in 2019, the artist maps these new borders by inviting local populations to perform the performance of counting the thorns that make up such barbed wires, one by one, each in their own language.
Where the politics of the border risks turning the other into a stranger, the counting of the endless thorns of the barbed wires installed in Europe (Hungary, Serbia, Slovenia, Croatia, Turkey, North Macedonia, Greece, Bulgaria), Asia (South and North Korea), and North America (Mexico and the United States) mixes languages, cultures, traditions, and imaginaries by modifying the border in undoing differences and uniting. Inconsistent in relation to global markets, financial spaces, the Internet, and digital technological universes that know and want no boundaries, such borders in fact undermine the imaginary of a society that instead aspires to be osmotic, interconnected, and cohesive. Appealing to the European cultural tradition that cultivates solidarity and values individual differences, Filippo Berta's performance civilizes social space in a pluralist key by mobilizing the peaceful capacity of each individual in favor of a democracy that understands citizenship as a participatory, inclusive, transformative experience. Through encounter, dialogue, and exchange, the new space of relationship and sharing comes to life instead of the border.
The installation can be visited from Dec. 1 to Jan. 15.
Monday through Friday, 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 2 to 5 p.m.

On Friday, November 4, 2022, in the setting of Artissima, PAV is pleased to inaugurate Tierra, a solo exhibition of artist Regina José Galindo, a Guatemalan artist who for more than 20 years has been investigating the theme of social justice through performative practices whose expressive center of gravity lies in the relationship between the body and the environment.
The exhibition, curated by Marco Scotini, follows those dedicated to the Indian artist Navjot Altaf and the Indonesian artist Arahmaiani in investigating the specific relationships between environmental exploitation and oppressed subjects, women and minorities, decentralizing the gaze beyond the geographical and cultural boundaries of the so-called West.
The exhibition traces the 20-year career of Galindo (winner of the Golden Lion at the 51st Venice Biennale as best young artist) by focusing on the ways in which each of her contacts with natural elements should be read intersectionally and militantly. And among all natural elements, the earth that gives the exhibition its title has its own particular status: Galindo's approach eschews any essentialist declination of the relationship between earth and the female body, anticipating and nonetheless influencing the most recent trends in ecofeminist artistic research. The itinerary exhibits the results of an approach that has evolved over the years, from the initial focus on Guatemalan socio-political issues, to the (site-specific) attention to the contexts and communities with which the artist interacts.
On the occasion of the opening at 7:30 p.m., the artist will present the previously unseen performance COAL TO LIGHT THE FIRE based on fossil matter, in connection with the exhibition itinerary and the current humanitarian and energy crisis.
