non di solo pane

non di solo pane” (“not by bread alone”) is a video installation I created for MAP_media against poverty: a wider creation process from ELAN Frantoio where to different kind of media artists was asked to investigate poverty in all its meanings.

 

My idea is to show a form of poverty that goes beyond the economic one. It is a mind and emotional poverty that lies under the dust of a second-hand suit or inside the indifference to relationships, but there is an escape.

My starting point is the definition of absolute poverty by The World Bank:

“condition of life so limited as to prevent the realization of the full genetic potential present at birth”

 

During the creation of the different chapters of the video, artefacts were created which were present then during the exhibition time in the form of a sculptural work.
