Another UNIDEE artist’s work i wanted to post. This time it’s by Angela Henderson who negotiated the language barrier like it almost did not exist (she – an English speaking Canadian – everyone she met outside Cittadellarte – Italian speaking Italians). It takes someone truly dedicated to the art of communication to just keep plugging away when you don’t share a language in common, but in the end through determination and sheer good will and a lot of drawing of diagrams, Angela managed to make meaningful connections and research this summer and those connections and exchanges are what her work is all about.
Inno al Pane (Hymn to Bread) is a site specific installation and video work located in a former panificio (bakery). Activating cross-cultural narratives through the exchange of memories around bread-making, the value of human connection is centrally positioned. Anyway… we were all invited to come and write any stories we had on the subject of bread on the walls as part of a series of interventions on the space.
