closed Valeria Cherchi. Anatomia del Silenzio

Curated by: Antonella Camarda e Giangavino Pazzola

The show

"It's important - says Giuliana Altea, President of the Fondazione Nivola - for a museum like ours to face speeches relevant to the territory. Valeria Cherchi's exhibition responds to this need: it's a da- ring project, which is not afraid to explore a topic theme with delicate and potentially controversial implications, but which does it without easy schematisms and safeguarding the aesthetic dimen- sion of the intervention”.Starting from the private memory of the Farouk Kassam's kidnapping - coeval of the author - Cher- chi explores this dark chapter of the Italian history offering a kaleidoscope of images, analysis, and tales that develop simultaneously. To the search conducted on the scene of these crimes, carried on through constant interaction with the local communities, Cherchi adds the exploration of media- archives (RAI and newspapers), the direct contact with some protagonists, and the analysis of her family's photo albums."Through an environmental and immersive installation of images, sounds and texts specifically conceived for the Museo Nivola's spaces - explains Giangavino Pazzola - the exhibition is organi- zed according to polarities and tensions, between inner and outer, past and future. The desperate peal of Farouk's mother to break the wall on the conspiracy of silence on the crime against her child is the trigger of this reflection about the ambiguous sacredness of silence". A sort of diary de- rives from it, intimate and choral, at the same time, made by fragments in which verbal and visual dimension weave and overlap together.
