ART INTERVENTIONS IN ABANDONED RURAL SPACES
CURATED BY COSIMO CAROPPO
1^ edition SALENTO, summer 2023
D I S T I C O is an action that traces a deep furrow in the environment in which it is expressed.
The works on canvas, poster and audio leave the walls to take care of a space without care, thus bringing To bring to the centre of discourse the periphery of peripheries, the reject of rejects.
And as they walk around, they wonder how this clash with their generative environment has created the conditions for them to exist. They are a merciless denunciation of a distichous, binary and suffocatingly static habitat.
The artistic intervention as such constitutes a reproduction error in a continuous, serial trend. A transcription leap. The essence for an evolutionary variation. And so it wanders and strikes dullness with existence.
The rural space, antecedent to all judgement, degree zero of a stratified society, will be, the mute witness of transhumance.
MADE OF UNCERTAIN S!DERAL FLOWS
DEEP IN THE HOLLOWS SWIMMING
THERE IS BODY
EXPRESSING VISIBLE FREQUENCIES
IT ROTS, ROARS, IS REBORN
wounded stuffed with certified opinions
thunderbolt piercing the present as if it were future
deluded into mov1ng
standing still it dies
burnt by symbolog!es
flesh to be consumed

Quarter clothed w!th glances,it poses
speaking it does not dare
Mute molt, does not change
