RAPTUS PROSERPINAE

PATH AND ARTISTIC EVENT DEVELOPED AT THE BOTANICAL GARDEN IN PADUA, SITO U.N.E.S.C.O.

Raptus 2012 – installation

The rapt of Proserpina is the incipit of a path witnessing the progressive decay of an environmental transformative process. The myth of Proserpina’s set in the Botanical Garden is staged in the four steps of the cycle of seasons.
Which are nowadays the actions with a real impact? What is the educational, entrepreneurial, cultural, gastronomic, politic, artistic sparkle able to enthusiasm collective thinking making it a part of a on-going trans-sectorial process inspired by beauty?
If the deal made by Cerere forced us, through the emergence of sleeping but necessary winter season, to develop organizational skill allowing us to bypass such fruitless period, in the same way how can we today redesign mental and physical maps for them to be something else than mere enclosures?

MOVING HERITAGE

Moving Heritage” site specific artistic performance, Palazzo della Ragione, Padua.

apertura-salone

Inside the magnificent Palazzo della Ragione, eyes get full of wonder when the gaze meets the majestic wood-made horse (copy of a work by Donatello) dominating the medieval hall.


The horse, wonderful animal having been at men’s side more than any other animal in human history and precious ally for human evolution, conquers the leading stage.
Man and horse faced together journeys, geographies and labour, marking discoveries and commercial routes, shaping territories and cultures: this priceless heritage painted that peculiar space-time line that, alike Giotto’s starry sky, marked world history.

JAPANASE ALBUM

http://www.yolandaochando.com/presentaciones/

Conceived as a collection of studies/sketches on a specific no man’s land, becomes part of “The forbidden garden” work.
Inspired by the structure of the work itself, I wanted to establish a link between western and oriental cultures around the mythical theme of the garden as a symbol of life and balance and relate all down to a contemporary issue.
Therefore, the Eden was perfect. It offered beauty and nurturing, a shelter to every tree. That shelter is demolished every day and with it is also ruined the way to live it and look at it…. In fact, men don’t take care of landscape, often rape it, destroying life and the very knowledge itself. All plants drawings in this album have been selected and chosen by two botanists.


List of selected plants:

ammophila arenaria
ciperus capitatus
kochia arenaria
calistegia soldanella
fumana procumbens
lagurus ovatus
dasipirum villosum
lonicera etrusca
quercus ilex
pinus nigra
centaurium erytraea
centaurea tommasini
leucanthemum vulgaris
