Mail Art Project 2008
Schegge d’arte per una Realtà Non Ordinaria
Dal 5/10/07 al 5/01/09
Inaugurazione: 5 ottobre 2007, ore 11.00
Ingresso libero

Schegge d’arte: ovvero frammenti, minuzie, piccole cose. Minuscole, a volte, come un francobollo, o una cartolina. Sono le opere raccolte da Realtà Non Ordinaria per realizzare questa mostra dedicata alla Creatività e dedicata alla Mail Art.
Moltissimi artisti provenienti da tutto il mondo hanno aderito con entusiasmo al progetto ed hanno inviato le loro opere di mail art: 189 di loro sono ora esposti alla Barrique.
Le opere in mostra sono fotografie, disegni, schizzi, gesti calligrafici, immagini manipolate nei più svariati modi, collages che utilizzano materiali di ogni genere e tipo; e ancora citazioni, frammenti di testo, rielaborati ed arricchiti da un segno, un gesto, un timbro d’artista; spesso anche il retro dell’opera/cartolina, o la busta che la contiene, sono vere e proprie opere d’arte, e meritano di essere mostrati.
Impegnate politicamente o socialmente, o solo divertenti e divertite, alcune tendono ad una mera ricerca estetica, altre a creare imbarazzo o scompiglio; per alcune si può parlare di provocazione, per altre di riflessione (sull’io dell’artista, sul mondo, sull’essere). In tutte però, si percepisce una grande voglia di fare e di comunicare: in qualsiasi modo e con qualsiasi mezzo. E quale mezzo migliore, per comunicare, se non la posta? Il piccolo formato arriva ovunque, può essere ovunque, non ha problemi di ingombro, né di trasporto.
In questo la Mail Art è un’arte democratica, per tutti, completamente al di fuori dei canali ufficiali: è una forma di arte concettuale che, fin dalle sue prime apparizioni negli anni ’60 del XX secolo, diventa canale privilegiato per coloro che credono nel libero scambio dell’arte non mercificata e non musealizzata.
Non ci sono regole né limitazioni per quanto riguarda i mezzi espressivi da utilizzare: ogni oggetto di mail art viene spedito per non tornare indietro, o per tornare modificato dal destinatario, o per essere scambiato con altri “pezzi”. Una libera circolazione di idee che, negli anni, ha favorito lo scambio tra individui di culture, linguaggi, paesi diversi e spesso lontani tra loro.
E’ questa libertà, questa “arte per tutti”, che va oltre i concetti di “bello” e di “estetica”, che Realtà non Ordinaria vuole celebrare a Scriò.

Schegge art for a Reality Not Ordinary

From 5/10/07 to 5/01/09
Inauguration: October 5, 2007, 11.00
Admission free

Schegge art or fragments, minuzie, small things. Minuscole, sometimes, like a stamp or a postcard. These are the works collected by Reality Not Ordinary to achieve this exhibition dedicated to creativity and dedicated to Mail Art.

Many artists from around the world have enthusiastically joined the project and have sent their works of art mail: 189 of them are now exposed to Barrique.

The works on display are photographs, drawings, sketches, calligraphic gestures, images manipulated in various ways, collages using materials of every kind and type, and still quotes, fragments of text, processed and enriched by a sign, a gesture, a stamp artist; often the back of / postcard or envelope that contains, are real works of art, and deserve to be shown.

Impegnate politically or socially, or just fun and divertite, some tend to a mere aesthetic, others to create embarrassment or disarray, for some one can speak of provocation, other reflection (sull'io artist, to the world, on 'Be). In all, however, receives a great desire to do and to communicate in any manner or by any means. And what better half, to communicate, if not the mail? The small format arrives everywhere, can be everywhere, no problem-outline, or transport.

With this the Mail Art is an art democratic, for all, completely outside the official channels: it's a form of conceptual art that, since its first appearances in the'60s of the twentieth century, it becomes a privileged channel for those who believe in the free exchange of not mercificata and not musealizzata.

There are no rules or limitations with regard to means of expression to use: each item of mail art is sent not to go back, or to return amended by the recipient, or to be confused with other "pieces". A free circulation of ideas that over the years, has encouraged the exchange between individuals of cultures, languages, different countries and often far between them.

And 'this freedom, this "art for all", which goes beyond the concepts of "beautiful" and "aesthetic" that Ordinary Reality not want to celebrate Scriò.
