Journey into Fragility is a project of the Italian artist Maria Rebecca Ballestra, inspired by the The Arenzano Manifesto for Earth and the Human Beings, conceived and created by Massimo Morasso in Italy in 2001.
The Manifesto is composed of twelve statements to constructively reset the issues of the environmental crisis, and it was subscribed to by the world’s most famous poets. The project will focus on the theme of art as a land of encounters, discussion and interaction between different disciplines such as science, ecology, politics, biotechnology, renewable energy, etc. ; art as an opportunity to build a constructive dialogue and a plural relationship on such important common heritage as the environment, food, resources and energy.
My works are based on the reprocessing and reinterpretation of social, political and environmental themes and on a synthesis of ethno-cultural codes, learned during several artist residencies program all around the world.
