Giorgia Severi – Premio Francesco Fabbri

LandRightsNews.intero

Giorgia Severi with Land Rights News take part of Francesco Fabbri 2019 Award.

The work reflects on the southern political landscape, that is, on British colonialism in aboriginal territory: lands of discrimination and ghost identity created by the cultural eradication of the natives, who seek redemption in modern social life and in the denunciation of abuses also through the media. Land rights news is the newspaper published by the Central Land Council of the NT and distributed free of charge in which different types of news are available. The artist’s operation was to print, paint and draw curative and sacred plants for the place tradition on newspaper pages that show conflicts and hardships, as a symbol of care and evocation of a cultural power that overlaps with that politic. The evocation of the strength of cultural belonging linked to the landscape and to the knowledge that tries to bland political tensions and then neutralize them. The plants used for the construction of the work are: eucalyptus, mulga tree, Allocasuarine, desert acacias and other medicine trees that grow in this semi-desert landscape and are also symbols of resilience and resistance for their tenacity to live in hostile environments at the limit of water survival.

    We have decided to  ask the artists in this show a single and simple question: why do you use glass?
    From their answers we have made brief video-essays of words and images, through which you can enter their highly personal interpretations of this material.
    Perhaps it is not a bad thing that the show can be enjoyed through a visual metaphor, given that the protagonist is seductive transparency…
