Wanted and Imago Mundi

Imago Mundi – Luciano Benetton Collection: Praestigium Italia. 18th May - 21st June 2015

"Imago Mundi is a cultural, democratic and global project that looks to the new frontiers of art in the name of coexistence of expressive diversity" (Luciano Benetton)

Imago Mundi showcases contemporary Italian art.

The world premiere of the Italian collection of the global artistic project conceived by Luciano Benetton will be held at the Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, from May the 18th to June the 21st 2015.

The collection – curated by Luca Beatrice – includes the work of 420 artists who, from North to South, from West to East, endorsed this project with enthusiasm, presenting in the 10x12 cm format their vision of Italy. Established artists and young talents, painters, but also architects, designers, photographers, publicists, musicians and actors, create a vibrant, generous, democratic mosaic in the tradition of Imago Mundi.

The exhibition (together with the two catalogues: 210 artists each, strictly in alphabetical order, available at the exhibition) criss-crosses the country, presenting both the creativity of the cities and the many talents of the provinces, with a particular openness to the artistic sensibility of women. “Praestigium has its origins in a pride for our prestigious roots, but intends to be, above all, the proud representation of our possible future, be it artistic, social or moral” said Luciano Benetton. “The commitment, sensitivity and courage to look ahead, the spirit of discovery of our artists, are signs of an Italian positivity which we send to the world.”

By 2015 more than 100 countries and over 20,000 artists will be involved in the project. Imago Mundi promotes them internationally through catalogues and participation in events and exhibitions around the world in collaboration with private and public institutions: from Venice (Biennale 2013) to Senegal (Dak’Art Off 2014), from Rome (Museo Carlo Bilotti, 2014/2015) to New Orleans (NOMA, 2014/2015) and Vienna (Belvedere & Winter Palace, 2015).

What it means to me

I believe in an art playful, work as a collective celebration, for this many of my latest works are related to these aspects, with street performances and ingredients.

So, for the exhibition Imago Mundi, I reproduced my work on t-shirts given away to those who agreed to wear them to the event and printed several posters that depicted hanging around the city.
I wanted to work in the open air that take lives, people wear and the walls of the yards.

Associated with these activities, I launched "WANTED Gnummy" a kind of treasure hunt, through which people could get excited with the smile of a sweet looking.
