closed Guendalina Salini

The show

A new project born from the collaboration of AlbumArte with Latitudo Art Project: Pachamama Concrete by the Roman artist Guendalina Salini. The exhibition, curated by Benedetta Carpi De Resmini, open until 24 June 2022, will have an extraordinary opening on Saturday 21 May (15.00 - 19.00) for the 10th edition of OPEN HOUSE ROME.

The title Pachamama Concrete is a play on words, a metaphor for a place. The word Pachamama, which in the archaic Inca culture means Mother Earth, intends to emphasize the link with the original principle of creation, generous Goddess of fertility and agriculture, nourishing mother who gives life. The ancient goddess, Ceres, dear to the ancient Romans, symbol of fertility and regeneration is the cornerstone of this project, which saw its origin in Corviale, a suburb of the city of Rome, not far from the temple to her. dedicated by the Arvali friars. Concrete, on the other hand, alludes to the almost one kilometer long residential complex, built in the late seventies by the architect Mario Fiorentino, which over the years has become a symbol of the failure of housing policies. Concrete is therefore the concrete with which the building was built, but it also alludes to the concreteness and resilience of the women who live there. The project was born during a residency created by the artist, as part of the European platform Magic Carpets, a platform co-financed by Creative Europe that unites fifteen European partners, whose lead partner is Kaunas Biennial and conceived by Benedetta Carpi De Resmini, who in 2021 started a long search in the western suburbs of the city.

Guendalina listened to these places trying to go beyond that stereotyped image of the modern suburbs, but returning to a circular and mutual conception of time and space. Through the works on display, the artist wants to bring out the life of the so-called Serpentone. The exhibition is built around the voices of some of the inhabitants who composed the track of the sound walk and which physically retraces different points of the building.

The audio that can be listened to in the rooms and easily downloaded through a QRcode, becomes the fil rouge that runs under the track along the exhibition path, without ever interfering with it, but which binds every single work, revealing its deep meaning and reconstructing that natural link with the place. Guendalina through sound installations, videos and drawings, leads us to question our political, cultural and moral reality, exploring its limits.
