Ideatoren Florence

An artistic world travel in the name of which can fragility a fragile object traveling in times of emails, chat and mobility once safely around the world, passed from hand to hand, to me stories and faces charging? Will it be the same if it returns? These questions have asked Verena Stenke and Andrea Pagnes as she her current global art project FRAGILE global performance chain journey”conceived. And now, this unique project will become a reality: more than 750 artists from 62 countries participate, among them sizes of contemporary art and performance. The action is simple, even if unpredictable in nature: a fragile subject is from hand to hand, from artist to artist, submitted, and travels once around the globe in this way through all continents and cultures. The journey of the object has started in the first week of September, when the Ideatoren Florence in the Balkans brought the object from its starting position. In Belgrade, she gave it a participating artist, the it again after Brachte-in this way, the mechanism was used Frankfurt, and the journey from hand to hand throughout the world began. The fragile, World Traveler object is a glass blown in Murano, 25 centimetres in diameter, inside the transparent individual gold leaves are.

“A simple but valuable object, which reflects the spirit of the entire action for the Sanjekar and Pagnes: he is fragile like the world and life itself, and we are all part of it, such as the gold pieces inside the round disc.” The aim of the project is the perception for the persistent fragility of being, of life and of our planet to sharpen; everything and everyone is extremely fragile, and nothing is resistant. The project FRAGILE global performance chain journey”opens a creative and responsible global dialogue on the issue. Every artist is, if he or she is in the temporary possession of the object, so a unstable create work of art: performance artists can live events arise, musicians compose pieces, Visual Artists develop the theme of fragility in paintings, sculptures and installations.
