A BRAND NEW PROJECT IN SICILY

 

Papaver Rhoeas that consists of a passage through a landscape, an intermission that speaks of the settlement and migrations of matter and peoples. Departing from Friedrich Hölderlin's sentence “Where the danger is, also grows the saving power”, I'm working on a a metaphor that sums up the relationship between the landscape and human intervention in the territory.

 

The Corn Poppy, Papaver Rhoeas, is a plant of harvest and depends on agricultural practices by human activity in the area. It settles on the ground plowed by the plow or turned from agricultural machinery: it belongs to the series of battles herbs, so its persistence has depended and threatened at the same time by the human organization of the territory: its proliferation stems from human activity, rationalization of the landscape as well as the threat to its extinction which escapes to an innate power of regeneration.
