MIRIAM DE BERARDIS,
THE FLAG symbolizes all that we have on earth. Utilizing the different visual languages and origins of 14 artists from Italy investigate through, colors, mark making, and form, a common thread, beyond gender and nationality.
The flag was born in a war contest. It was a vexillum; primitive materials (such as feather and leaves) were tied up with bamboo, then, Chinese people discovered the silk, and the flags were made with this new material and they finally waved in the wind.
Each artist in the exhibition has been asked to create a work based on idea of THE PLANETARY FLAG. Not just a simple flag but something, that represents the entire world, all the continents, the animals, all human beings, and the environment, in one word: the Earth.
It could be an utopistic vision having only one Flag. Officially we have 194 flags, for 194 nations recognize by ONU and it is easier to make a flag more difficult is to create an idea of unity. The artists are invited to think not just globally, but in a planetary way. It seems difficult to put together and realize a thought of unity in a rectangle of fabric: it is a challenge. Many are the meanings the artists interpreted by these 14 artists; from ecological, and geographical, to symbolical aspects, each dealing with the idea of an awareness that we only have one earth.
This exhibition offers fresh and exciting perspective, a challenge for the future into the manner in which the identity of the earth and all human beings shed light on the most contemporary issue.
