The wisdom of the Lianas: The Open Boat

Exhibition

The wisdom of the Lianas: The Open Boat

The video installation La barque ouverte is displayed for the first time as part of La Sagesse des lianes, a group exhibition by curator Dénétem Touam Bona at CIAP Vassivière. This video is a collaboration with writer and director Hugo Rousselin. Made from an unpublished film archive produced as part of the CHAM project, La barque ouverte is a reference to a text spoken by Edouard Glissant, the preface to the Poetics of Relation in which Glissant thus sums up the experience of abyss of slavery of Africans and rebirth through resistance.

Prix Elysée Nominee

Grants

Prix Elysée Nominee

Nicola Lo Calzo is nominated to the 3rd edition of the Prix Elysée.

Nicola Lo Calzo, for whom the Mediterranean has never been a border, aims to reacquaint us with a migrant, Binidittu, the name given to the hermit Saint Benedict the Moor, the son of African slaves and born in Sicily in the 16th century. Upon his death, the Afro-Sicilian friar became an icon. Canonized in 1807, he was the Catholic Church’s first black saint and was made Patron Saint of Palermo. Binidittu is a reflection on the treatment of migrants on the shores of the Mare nostrum, an allegory for our time.
