Giorgia Severi is one of the four artists who are part of Nature Inquiete, a collective show that opens on 4 September 2020 in the Church of Santa Maria dell’Angelo in Faenza. The exhibition is organized by the Diocesan Museum of Faenza and curated by Giovanni Giardini.
The site-specific installation About the creation was created for the apse of the Church of Santa Maria dell’Angelo in Faenza for this landscape exhibition. The tapestries in the installation were made between 2019 and 2020 and are part of the Rocca Pendice series of the About the Creation project that the artist has been carrying out for a couple of years. They are made on fabrics that in the 70s were used for thermal practices at the Euganean Baths, these tapestries evoke an Italian cultural and landscape belonging, but with graphic and fluorescent details used for the drawing-frottage of the mountains traced on the walls of Rocca Pendice mountain. The clay, therefore the mud coming from the territory, was first used to cure man, and here, the same canvases used for thermal treatments with clay, reveal the landscape from which they come, representing mountain ranges that melt, mountains that are eroded and mapping impossible, for an environmental emergency message where now it is the landscape that needs care.
