closed Silent Spring

The show

The dialogue between archeology and contemporary art marks the restart after the health emergency: in synergy with the cultural policy of the scientific direction of the National Archaeological Museum of Taranto - MArTA di Eva Degl’Innocenti, Director of the MArTA, open to contemporary languages ​​and themes, the Circuit of Contemporary, a strategic project with the artistic direction of Giusy Caroppo, which has the aim of establishing a polycentric network of excellence for the production and use of contemporary art, establishes a partnership of collaboration with the National Archaeological Museum of Taranto -MARTA, where "Silent Spring" opens, personal exhibition of the Apulian sculptor Claudia Giannuli, curated by Antonello Tolve.


Organized in collaboration with the Eclectic Cultural Association - Culture of Art, winner of the public notice "Let's keep culture in Puglia", the exhibition was born after a long reflection by the artist,

in a joint dialogue with the cultural policy of the MArTA based on the value of an Archeology in the Future underway since its establishment by Eva Degl’Innocenti, Director of the archaeological museum among the most important in Italy, who exhibits finds from Prehistory to the Early Middle Ages; a project that signs the union between the high cultural value of Museum and the format of Giusy Caroppo which indicates precisely the MArTA of Taranto as the strategic epicenter of the Circuit, open to the Mediterranean and to a network of national and international museum institutions.


Inspired by the essay of the same name by the American biologist Rachel Carson - an influential figure in the constitution of the

feminist and ecofeminist movements - the sculptural production of Claudia Giannuli for the "Silent Spring" project is characterized by at least two elements of continuity with the archaeological collections of Taranto: the medium, the ceramic, which constitutes the material with which most of the artefacts exhibited in the rooms hosting the exhibition are made; the female universe, a theme that recurs in the reference myths, as well as the link with nature. Far away from being didactic and intentionally politically incorrect, it ranks along the path of the Museum to the former plan divided into 5 stages, with unpublished installations that are part of the traditional thematic visit e chronological. These are display cases made like terrariums, and a paludarium, in which natural landscapes appear and vital. An evocation of a silent enclosed spring, such as the one we are experiencing.
