Curtains of Mist | 2018
Chinese ink and gouache on baking paper, video projection, no sound
My vision intends to embrace a wider understanding of the current environmental situation linked to climate change, capitalistic system, and globalization in Punjab, it is the fog, which envelops and obstructs the view, to surprise in the frescoed hall of Casa Mannozzi. Curtains of mist is an immersive installation, which focusses and investigates the causes of the environmental issues faced by the inhabitants of Punjab, due to the smog caused by intensive agriculture led by green revolution in the 1960s and 70s.
The video that is hidden among the black curtains, highlights the strong and constant conversion of underground water into toxins, with its silent and continuous movement.
The project took place in:
Museo Casa Masaccio Centro per l'Arte Contemporanea
