I PARTICIPATE AS GUEST OF ART CURATOR ROBERTO RONCA : HUMAN RIGHTS
On 10th December 1948 , the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was proclaimed: for the first time in the history of humanity, a document concerning all the people of the world was drawn up. Everyone of us, only due to the fact that he was born, enjoys the rights endorsed by the Declaration. Everyone of us, regardless of the place where he was born and where he lives, enjoys these rights. Everyone of us has civil, political, social, economical and cultural rights. Everyone of us is equal to the others.
Is it always so?
In HUMAN RIGHTS? artists speak about human rights. The title, simple and direct, without roundabout expressions, expresses the main idea which must go with everybodys life.
In this event, uncomfortable, complex and denunciation subjects are dealt with, in order to sting the conscience of all those who, enjoying their own rights, dont think about all people whose rights are violated every day.
The logic of HUMAN RIGHTS? is based on the fundamental concept of art as a universal expressive form, understandable by everybody regardless of his language and culture, regardless of his gender, of the subject and of the languages used.
Languages vary depending on the artists experience and mastery, and they create new relationships with the audience, who approaches art feeling immediately involved and directly concerned. Discomfort images, violated rights images, images about everyday stories which should not exist, but even images which are able to deal with a delicate and difficult subject with wisdom and, why not, irony.
The exhibition will highlight different ways to see the matter, since the event is open to artists from all over the world. It becomes so particularly interesting to discover in which way the perception of the concept of respect of the rights is experienced and expressed.
The event aims to shake consciences: it deeply wants to avoid common places brought by word abuse: to speak about human rights has become so common that the words human rights violation are deprived of all meaning and by now they touch us only at a distance when we hear them, without getting them into our heads.
The most immediate way to retrieve that conscience, essential to be really part of a system which respects everybodys rights, is to see with ones eyes all that artists have to say. Images insert themselves in ones memory in such an immediate and strong way that all those who visit it will leave it more conscious and emotionally involved.
To speak about human rights, according to artists, means to " Pull out " many ideas which can not find the space fit for the purpose in other events.

!IT IS 5 PM
The sky darkens, the Earth cools; we feel the pull of our common blood, stronger than the gravity we negotiate to find our way back to each other before the night can intervene; a daily resuscitation as rhythmic as the pulse that limns a single organism; we three abide.
Text by THE EGG
Birthright, a fragile chain that remains sacred, mysterious, unbroken.
A reverence for that which extends the heart beyond its own pelt; the way that love jeopardizes the instinct for self preservation but also provides the key to eternity... One after another, from Mother to Daughter to Mother; a line that reaches around the Earth and back again, a reaffirmation of the impossible miracle that began the whole predicament.
