Fernando at Anima Mundi, Venice 2017
Fernando has been selected to exhibit at the ANIMA MUNDI festival, curated by Luca Curci and Andrea Chinellato. The festival will be presented in Venice at the Palazzo Ca’ Zanardi, one of several prestigious and historic venues to be hosting showcase exhibitions from May to November 2017 within the stunning backdrop of the iconic cityscape.
ANIMA MUNDI consists of the special event, ‘ELEMENTS,’ and three principal exhibitions, ‘RITUALS,’ ‘ CONSCIOUSNESS,’ and ‘VISIONS.’
Fernando is part of the “Conciousness” exhibition, alongside other recognised International artists.
The festival focuses on the concept of ANIMA MUNDI, that according to several historical cultures, religions and philosophical systems, is an intrinsic connection between all living entities on the planet, relating to the world in a similar way as the human soul is connected to the human body.
Plato expressed his thought about the ANIMA MUNDI in the Timaeus, “this world is indeed a living being endowed with a soul and intelligence… a single visible living entity containing all other living entities, which by their nature are all related”.
ANIMA MUNDI is the invisible energy behind all natural and artificial elements that allow life to generate on the planet. Thanks to the hidden connections of ANIMA MUNDI, all the ecosystems of the Earth, before and after the appearance of mankind, found their equilibrium, their ways to live and to develop themselves, to transform and to evolve. All the beings of the planet; plants, minerals, animals, are permeated by an esoteric force that has always stimulated human thought and research.
The festival aims to discover these multiple forms of hidden connections between the soul and the body, mankind and nature, natural environments and man-made cities. Artists are invited to show their reflections about the various ways in which the ANIMA MUNDI expresses the relationships among all the existing entities and the natural and cultural systems, and to represent by their artistic works the processes of the evolution of the world in which we all live. Artists, designers and architects are invited to talk about ANIMA MUNDI through photo reportage of cities, hidden places, photographic documentaries and personal experiences, presenting their works of photography, painting, sculpture/installation, design and architecture, video-art and live performance.
Palazzo Ca’ Zanardi (Cannaregio 4132, Venice) is a residential palace dating back to the 16th century which, over the centuries, has been added onto by various noble Venetian families and is one of the most evocative and beautiful palaces in the city of Venice. Sumptuous and possessing particular charm, Ca’ Zanardi is located in a most peaceful setting and has its own delightful private garden as well as a magnificent terrace full of sun and colour. Ca’ Zanardi is located close to the Ca’ D’Oro, the splendid 15th century gothic palace along the Grand Canal. It is easily reachable by foot, after a two minute walk from the Ca’ D’Oro water bus stop, or by boat using the palazzo’s private pier positioned along the fetching Santa Caterina canal. The refined elegance of the palazzo’s halls and common areas and the delicacy of its original 16th century furnishings create a fascinating setting.
