L’Indifferente
The Indifferent

A cura di / Curated by Giorgia Lucchi Boccanera

L’Indifferente è una mostra digitale dedicata al tema dell’intolleranza: come scrive Liliana Segre, la senatrice a vita superstite all’Olocausto, “… essere la chiave per comprendere la ragione del male, perché quando credi che una cosa non ti tocchi, non ti riguardi, allora non c’è limite all’orrore. L’indifferente è complice.”

Agli artisti spesso è chiesto di essere una finestra sul mondo e di raccontare la realtà, anche in maniera non specificatamente autobiografica, ma comunque di alzare la voce con le loro storie che prendono forma nella pittura, così come nella fotografia e nella scultura.

Razzismo, omofobia, paura del diverso, abuso di potere, violenza nei confronti delle donne e di soggetti fragili, tra cui la natura, sono i protagonisti delle rappresentazioni selezionate per il tema della mostra.

Le immagini sono accompagnate dalle voci degli artisti che, narrando la storia della composizione, ci permettono di entrare in una sequenza visiva, e spesso inaspettata, di suggestioni che hanno per soggetto la vita dell’altro, rispetto al quale, per noi osservatori curiosi del mondo, dovrebbe essere difficile restare indifferenti.

The Indifferent is a digital exhibition dedicated to the theme of intolerance: as Liliana Segre, the life-long senator who survived the Holocaust, writes, “… be the key to understanding the reason for evil, because when you believe that something doesn’t touch you, that has nothing to do with you, then there is no limit to the horror. The indifferent is an accomplice.”

Artists are often asked to be a window on the world and to tell reality, even in a specifically non-autobiographical way, but nevertheless to raise their voices with their stories that take shape in painting, as well as in photography and sculpture.

Racism, homophobia, fear of the different, abuse of power, violence against women and fragile subjects, including nature, are the protagonists of the representations selected for the theme of the exhibition.

The images are accompanied by the voices of the artists who, narrating the history of the composition, allow us to enter into a visual sequence, often unexpected, of suggestions that have as their subject the life of the other, with respect to which, for us curious observers of the world, it should be difficult to remain indifferent.
