I couldn’t see anything…
My eyes were full of fog.
Thick smoke, I walked and walked,
I knew nothing.
I could hear whispers, they got closer and closer
I could not understand.
Their faces were covered in smoke.
I didn’t know if they would save me or take me away!
I just wanted to scream: don’t bite me!
But I kept walking and walking,
I couldn’t see anything
Blue Rhino Art consultancy on September 24th at 18:00, presents “DON’T BITE ME!” which is a collective exhibition, housed in the extraordinary sixteenth-century cloister of the Church of Santa Caterina a Formiello – whose large monumental complex is among the most important examples of Neapolitan Renaissance.
The exhibition is the final project of an artist’s residency which local and non-local artists took part, screams Don’t bite me! Showcasing works of a broad range of mediums – from figurative painting to embroidery to photography to sculpting – made by a diversity of artists, from Iran, Turkey, Egypt, Uk, Serbia, Belgrade, Italy, Albania,Belarus. The fundamental concept at the base of this strong exclamation is the search for security-insecurity that lies behind the many paradoxes that our body lives with the taxation of the city and, in general, to the body of the other.
The paradox is also the diversity that can arise from the need to change the point of view, through the look and gestures of a range of professionals and new international discoveries, it is possible to read this so intimate topic from a broad perspective.
