closed Opening: Clement Cogitore Ferdinandea

The event

Ferdinandea is a new body of works by the French artist Clément Cogitore, presented in international preview at the Madre museum, in which the French artist investigates, through 16 mm films, videos, photographs and historical documents, on the emergence and sinking of an ephemeral volcanic island that appeared in the Mediterranean waters between Sicily and Tunisia in 1831. The result of an underwater eruption, the island quickly became the scene of geopolitical rivalries, before disappearing again just six months after its first appearance. Today, sleeping eight meters under the waves, Ferdinandea could at any moment re-emerge following further seismic activity. Cogitore orchestrates a set of premonitions, observations, metaphorical insights and fictions to consider what this story can tell us about our current situation and our possible future.

Exhibition realized with POC funds (COMPLEMENTARY OPERATIONAL PROGRAM) 2021 Campania Region.

The works of Clément Cogitore presented in the exhibition have been created with the support of the Institut Français, the Nuovo Mecenati Foundation, Noirmontartproduction, Arter and Chantal Crousel Consulting.

Opening from 18:00 to 21:00
