Cardio Poética

Cardio Poética

Cardiopoetica (Italy)

Some might remember a child on a shores, when all the European breaths stopped, when our conscience was bartered for a moment of pity of Schengen area. Forgiving the centuries is hard, needs time, needs effort, needs one to be a tree holding the roots – roots that are evanescent when we have fear. Fear for the others, which remind us who we are – who we were and have always been. Probably, we do not want to face this. We do not long want to face ourselves when our souls are offshore in the night.

 

Is a group of three young poets from Rome (Fabio Appetito, Marco De Cave, Mariano Macale) who are neighbours in life and in friendship. They have started to make public readings since when they were teenagers gaining public recognition for their arts and ideas. They were awarded with three important national prizes – in 2013, they received the Pasolini award for their civic engagement; in 2015, the De André national award for the finest emerging poetry and in 2016 with Merini poetry award for literature research.

The group published two books in Italy, collaborating with different blogs and magazines, as well as famous Italian musicians and actors. What is more, it works for a web radio called Radio Bullets, founded by two of the most brilliant Italian journalists, Barbara Schiavulli (famous war reporter) and Alessia Cerantola (Japan Times, Panama Papers investigator). The aim of the radio is to talk about the international facts through podcasts. For its innovative approach it was rewarded by Digital Journalism Google initiative.

This artwork shows the energy that helps us connect with one another with as much authenticity and compassion as possible regardless of the space, time or existence.

The big homeless

This photograph intervened is the sample of a hound abandoned by his master. Luckily for him, he has been adopted by a new family that provides for him with much love and affection. This is the expression of our own solitude filled with suspicion of others.we are nomads of affections, and the more we walk, the more our home is established in the good hearts and vibrations of those moments that move/touch us. This is the face of the great tramp we are nomads of affections, and the more we walk, the more our home is established in the good hearts and vibrations of those moments that touch us. This is the face of the great tramp.

Humankind and Irresistible Curiosity

Curiosity is the irresistible force that brings people beyond their limits. Nobody can stay just in their bowl, but they need to swim in an ocean of possibilities that surrounds them: some opportunities are visible, others are blurry and others even unknown.

Through the variety of the impetus blue tones, the dynamism of the fish, the chromatic contrast between the straight red line and the blue water, I am presenting to you a “bouillon de cultures”, an environment favorable to the hatching of ideas.

“When you see a fish, you don’t think of its scales, do you? You think of its speed, its floating, flashing body seen through the water… If I made fins and eyes and scales, I would arrest its’ movement, give a pattern or shape of reality. I want just the flash of it’s spirit.”

Linda De Sousa (Lisboa, 1949)

Dance is immersed in all cultures of the world throughout history – it is one of the fine arts, the most studied, equal by men and women, who have been interested by that spell that haunts both participants and spectators-, the tradition of dance is
such an extraordinary force in the development of cultures that it is worth studying. In this case, I brought the transparency to the dance to mean its lightness, its beauty, as it can be merged with any environment; I tried to combine the two fine arts that are the plastic expression of the dancing body and the drawing of the hand.

Adriana Zapisek

Adriana Zapisek

Adriana Zapisek (Argentina 1950)

Although utopias are questioned, several artists continue on our path to search for the positive that is the engine of our lives. In my work I try to generate ideas and experiences to break down prejudices and have a better coexistence among all the inhabitants of the world with the freedom of creation.

I feel and believe that art is the bridge that unites the different cultures and idiosyncrasies to leave aside the differences that separate us and try to have a change in society, to improve it and make it more just.

Painter, born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, lives and works in this city as much as in Madrid, Spain. At her early beginings in 1980, her artistic investigations were based on its realization with aerograph and geometric forms to later develop more freely and with mixed techniques the paintings of his last series. Following in the investigation of the form, now Zapisek has found with the photography and the present technologies a new way of expression, without betraying its style with its characteristic style. She has given lectures on Argentine Art, and on her paintings, in different European and American cities. She held more than 30 solo exhibitions and more than 150 group exhibitions around the world. Currently she develops her activities between Madrid and Buenos Aires.

All united in the dissolution of matter

Reflection on the being that is connected to the other, other cultures and therefore all, united in the dissolution of negative paradigms taken as truth. To understand that impermanence is the only absolute truth, the constant change in which we find ourselves. The understanding of impermanence, is a possibility to be people less attached to our present life and, therefore, less unhappy, more willing to live in peace with everyone and with the planet. As the doctor in Buddhist philosophy Ringu Tulku Rimpotché explains, “the great majority of problems in the world come from the idea of permanence. Why do we fight against each other? Why are there so many conflicts between religions, countries …? It is because we believe that situations are lasting and we perceive ourselves as permanent. “

Highlighted visual artist, specialized in multidisciplinary painting, among her studies is the Master’s and Bachelor’s Degree in Visual Arts, at the Faculty of Arts and Design, UNAM, Master Artistic Production and research, in the Faculty of Fine Arts of the University of Barcelona. Since 1998 she has participated in numerous collective exhibitions in Mexico, Europe, Argentina and Asia. Her work has been selected and distinguished in painting contexts. Her most recent alone exhibitions are: “The Transmutation of Matter”, Lux Perpetua Art Center, Merida. “Sub-objetualidades in Deconstruction”, room 1 of the Royal Academy of San Carlos. “Sub objetualidades”, in Alcalá de Henares, Madrid. “Motley-Pleasure”, Museum of Contemporary Art Ateneo of Yucatan (2012).

“A place to be”

I am interested in our relationship with the natural environment. I like to recover the idea of an environment that protects and embraces us. In the developed world, the relationship is different. It is based on the Renaissance concept, according to which, we are no longer an integrating part, but we have the free will and superiority to use it and transform it for our own benefit. This relationship is measured in absolutely economic terms and always in the short term, without having in account other values. Our consumer society intervenes in nature in terms of capitalism, industrialization, hyperurbanization and globalization.

Her artistic practice is situated in a material postconceptualism, reflecting subjective perceptions for the ways of representing the world, the boundaries between the two- and the three-dimensional and the relations with our environment, with a growing interest in socio-economic balance.

Her work began with painting and extends to photography and installation. Interested in moving between disciplines, and the game of representation the object. In her projects she uses materials such as ice, plants and newspapers. In recent years, glass has become very important media. Studied Economics in Augsburg (Germany), with specialization in Environmental Economics, and Graduate Certificate in Engraving and Photography in Art Institute of Havanna (Cuba). It stands out her participation in the Havana Biennial,
PHOTOEspaña, Estampa, ArtMadrid y Fotonoviembre.

Cleusa Rossetto (Brazil, 1955)

As the time passes man is surrounded by connections and their ends are no longer exclusive. Never has everything seemed to be so close, we know in “real time” of events that can affect in many ways different peoples. The fields of meaning and the form of absorption of these events, by diverse cultures, allow a mixture of knowledge. It creates a citizen network of solidarity and cultural exchange, thus emerging the desire to break barriers and the human being thus becomes a citizen of the world.

Her professional training in both civil engineering technology and architecture allowed her to act on a twofold way: rational
and emotional. Her academic and scientific research background at home and abroad, has led her to get acquainted with many mathematical computing resources related to graphics expression.

Although she paints, since she was fifteen, in 2005 she decided to start a new artistic career applying her expertise in using computation for graphics to create complex pictures to innovate artistic and visual languages. Since 2009 she has been curator of the annual exhibitions of Technology and Art Cultural Space of FATEC-SP.

She has participated in more than seventy exhibitions, both national and international, being awarded several prizes. In 2011 she was co-founded and also responsible for the edition and publication of “FEMMES&ART” (nos. 1, 2 and 3). (Hosted in ISSUU).

She is a member of the “MAV” – Women in the Visual Arts and the pro Art and Culture Group in Spain, and associated to “AUTVIS” – Brazilian Association of Visual Authors Rights.

There is no difference between people, not now, nor thousands of years ago. History proves we can do great harm, but greater good if people of different cultures work together. Human intelligence has always been there, giving us peace options we have not always been able to use. We should let the greedy fight their own battles and not let them involve us all.

Seed of Life

The seed of life, found in various ancient civilizations, is said to contain the pattern of creation. Formed by seven superimposed circles, I take it to represent the unstoppable life force which creates, connects, destroys and recreates all cultures. I have incorporated seven symbols that represent transcultural philosophical concepts as well as specific civilizations: OM –the primordial sound of the universe-, the fish -a prehistoric symbol for the goddess of fertility, and
later for Christianity-, the universal solar disk, the Rosetta stone as metaphor for intercultural communication, the crescent moon with the star, found in ancient. Mesopotamia and Celtic Britain and now a symbol for Islam, the Aleph -the primal letter , the yin-yang, representing the duality that characterizes human thought….

Painter, sculptor, land art artist. As art educator she specializes in empowering workshops for people with visual impairments, learning disabilities and cerebral palsy. Her work as visual artist involves extensive research on ancient civilizations, which she then recreates in the form of sculptures, paintings and installations. She is fascinated by human archetypal symbols such as sacred diagrams and age- old labyrinths which are simultaneously found in all five continents because of their power to remind us of the humanness shared by all men and women of our planet.

Her most outstanding exhibitions:
1. Palais des Nations, United Nations, Geneva. Exhibition
“Labyrinths of the World” (work in progress) October 2006.
2. Gallery at La Corrala, Museo de Artes y tradiciones

Kay Woo

Kay Woo

Kay Woo ( South Korea, 1960)

Tuna is one of the most loved fish all over the world. The Japanese are famous for their craze for it and Spain provides most of the red tunas they consume. The global hunger for this exquisite fish brought them to the danger of extinction at one point. Recently I had an opportunity to participate in the making of adocumentary about the thousands-year-old tuna fishing technique called Almadraba used in the south of Spain, and then I dreamed that all the tunas were flying away from the ocean contaminated by human greed and waste. The two rock islands in my painting represent the easternmost territory of Korea, called DokDo, and are an example of another kind of human greed as they have always been a source of dispute between Japan and Korea, and on top of that, nowadays North Korea often tests their missiles in this water. No wonder tunas are flying away from this conflictive ocean.

Multidisciplinary artist whose main activity is sculpture.

Fine Arts degree from the prestigious Seoul National University, South Korea.  Has worked as graphic designer for Art Design Group and as automotive sculptor for General Motors in Detroit, USA, for more than 15 years.  Resides in Madrid since 2001 and starts her career as an independent artist in 2008.

Ethel Bergman Andersson

Ethel Bergman Andersson

Ethel Bergman Andersson (Sweden 1949)

The sight of the northern lights (also known as aurora borealis) is truly one of the most impressive spectacle our planet has to offer, although we soon forget that so much beauty wouldn’t be posible without those amazing gas emissions in the form of toungues of fire that occur in our sun’s photosphere giving off an energy equivalent to millions of hidrogen bombs that, while travelling in the form of electromagnetic radiation at the speed of light, will end up bombarding our planet generating astonishing natural phenomenons; radiations which are also dreaded since their fickle fluctuations can have a hand in the fundamental vital structures for the development of life on earth. In this “Solar Storm”, Ethel expresses the strenght of this cosmic chaos thus setting a balanced counterpoint to an intense but placid saga of aurorae borealis.

Ethel Bergman’s work, although formally referred to as “abstraction”, has a deeper meaning that has to do with the her concern for the environment, inspired by the landscape of her native Sweden and her knowledge of the World by a bird’s eye view for having traveled on innumerable occasions in an airplane, is related to social complaint and her vision of an almost dreamlike universe or magical landscapes of great beauty in which water, snow and often atmospheric phenomena take a big role to express emotions or experiences.

In recent years she has exhibited in countless competitions, exhibitions and fairs in Spain and outside in places like Gällivare, Stockholm, Malmberget, Luleà, Överkalix and Kiruna in Sweden. Brussels, New York, Miami, Singapore, Rome , Nice,
Genoa, Austria and Germany. Her work belongs to different collections such as the Gallivare Museum in Sweden, the Celestina Museum in Puebla de Montalbán, Cultural Center Gloria fuertes ,Teresa de Calcuta in Madrid and recently added to the Castle Collection of Gmünd-Austria, among others. Currently a member of the AEPE (Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors), the group PRO ART and CULTURE and the MAV (Women in Visual Art – I exhibit in the Reina).

Ulises Rodriguez (Colombia, 1962)

Traveling The Inner Space.

Life develops in profounds and complex tissues linked in microscopic and indescribables landscapes, beautiful shapes to which we rarely have access or that at the end, we unconsciously ignore.

The process of these transformations finally evolves into something tangible and irreverently we succumb. That mysterious beginning give base to my work, in which I want to magnify a lapse of that trip as an organic representation of something that transcends and of which unavoidably, we are part..

A multidisciplinary artist whose work constantly integrates both hard and organic mediums that reflect his inner vision
and fascination of the beginning stages of life. His career started in The Arts and Letters School in Bogota, Colombia. Later he attended a liberal arts college in the Universidad Complutense of Madrid, Spain where he developed a big part of his research and art workshops. At the end of the 90s, he moved to Boston in the United States of America where he continues to work as an artist, develop
his skills, and teach art in Boston Public Schools. Selected in the National Mariano Benlliure prize, 1993-94. Madrid, Spain.

First encountered the Escuelas de Arte Europeo. Toulouse, France. 1991.

Human Catchers

It is your right is to either use help from outside or try to keep your head above water on your own. But if you agreed to take the help it does not necessarily mean that from this point everything changes. Both in Heaven or on Earth, turnovers are the same. Today seems to be a good day for catching humans.

Graphic Artist Member of Designer Union of Russia. My time is occupied with object design, development of art
objects for modern interiors and expositions of modern designer jewelry. All these actions are a simple transformation of graphics
into volume for me. I feel responsible for the clarity of graphic art since birth.

Arnold Méndez Cruz (Cuba 1979)

This artwork is, further than just a painting, a metaphor about exile and asylum. About the feeling of those who were transplanted and lives their lifes out of context. About the inefficiency of the means dispossed wich acts more as a palliative than as a solution to an unsustainable and inhumane situation.

When he arrived to Spain at the age of 18 he changed, in a radical way, science for painting. This last one became his own personal way to digest his new life, to cushion the exile. He studied Fine Arts at the Universidad Complutense of Madrid where he gained Honors in Painting, Drawing and Anatomy drawing.

He has made several exhibitions, either personal or collective
since 1999. Such as:
1. Young cuban artists in exile. King Juan Carlos University
(NY)
2. The path of the snail (always with the house on)
Laboheme Fineartsgallery (Miami)
3. Stuttgart Public Library (Germany)
4. Estradas. Trazo Siete Collective (Almeida, Portugal)
5. Asociación Espacio Latinoamericano ELA (Brussels)
6. Finalists of Gregorio Prieto Prize. Museo de la Ciudad
(Madrid)
7. House of Italy. Fine Arts Faculty Collective. (Madrid)
8. Fair ARTEXPO with Laboheme Fineartsgallery (NY)
He has cooperated with many art and literature magazines.
He has artworks in collections like Caja de Ávila and
Universidad Complutense de Madrid.
