The Land Project

Mouchette The Land Project

Earth land soil ground territory domain free-zone nation country borders.
63 artists have send their contribution, from January 2002 to January 2003, to The Land Open Project, a free partecipation project promoted on Kid Koma –
The 2001’s disasters caused a general and extended hiding behind terms such as “nation” and “patriotism”: terms which together with “faith” produced slogans advertising the most bloody and cruel slaughters of the history.
Can the relationship between “country” and “land” be defined as virtual?
Can the contemporary human being, more and more engaged in virtual and mediating territories, preserve such concept and the relationship with earth?
How does the territory perception develop itself in the virtual space?
Originated by a social-political reflection, such as “land“, this open space started to collect and search proposals of several artists based on various specialties and countries.
The works alternates both old and new-media figurative arts, experiences related to nomadism, immigration, urban collusions/collision, geographical/archaeological/interior journeys, soil presence/absence, use of new technologies for the exploration of real territories – from digital domain to virtual identity – in a gallery of continuous reflecting parentheses about this antithetic topic such as “soil” and “virtual”.
