1111National Archaeological Museum of Venice_Francesca Montinaro: Communitas Immunitas
Francesca Montinaro has been inspired by the Roman statues of women exhibited at the Venice Archaeological Museum to create a relationship between the very same statues and her more than 600 female portraits shown here in a video installation. The work, "11.146.312 meters", on the n a mother hand, represents the distance a young Somalian woman, Nasra, travelled to reach Italy and makes the public walk on a moving walkway, thus ideally feeling closing to her. A simple action such as walking, sharing part of a journey, to rebuild together a distressed community. A very feminine lyricism, a symbolic force of great impact, for a project on the future of the community.
