AlbumArte | Via Flaminia 122, Rome, open till 29th February 2020
On 16th January 2020 AlbumArte is going to open the personal exposition fo Anna Raimondo titled Fronte Nazionale Naso Partenopeo, curated by Trulli.
The title of the exhibition comes from a sentence that the artist has casually seen on a wall in Naples. The controversial topic of identity, is here ironically laid bare by this sentence and becomes the centre on the exhibition which propose an heterogeneous selection of works. All of her work comes from a constant research that, starting from its intimate dimension, deals with political and public questions, such as the right of mobility or the de-construction of genre identity
In Fronte Nazionale Naso Partenopeo, the artist opens a reflection about everyday actions of transformation and social emancipation through a work born of interviews with several activists women and European citizens. A (non) party represented by a non-flag is here exhibited next to various propagandistic materials, sharing with them the aim of determining a friction with the present and the political debate.
Most of her works focus particularly on the creation of raids between the space and the public sphere, in the constant aim of re-creating times and spaces of listen of the urban landscape, creating this way new displays of bewilderment and dislocation of the meaning.
Through the flow of the sound the artist connect spaces, times and people reflecting on topics and identities that memory or society tend to delete. The exhibition is, in its way, a liquid itinerary structured by sound works, relational projects and performative acts created by the artist in the different parts of the world.
The exhibition has been realised in collaboration with ExElettrofonica and Cantieri d’Arte – La ville ouverte.
