"The digital journey has begun... to know when to get unplugged is the important thing."
An insightful reconnaisance of the role social media plays in our lives.

For prayers made to unseen faces,
Offerings from depths of faith and belief-
The words we spoke were inaudible to us,
Yet we heard them clearly like our own tongues spoke the words-
But there were no words,
And they were not words,
Mutterings and groanings and violent jerkings,
Our spirits flailing around like men nigh death;
It could well be a matter of death, or life,
All depending on the reception of our words,
Our words we couldn't even hear.
Prayers, and prayers,
Petitions beyond mere speaking- "For our prayers were heavier than speech,
Our desires like heavy mountains
Driving us close to madness"
For indeed we could,
And we have been called so, mad,
With reason- thrashing limbs,
As our prayers moved from hearts and minds
To arms and feet,
With stomps, leaps and twirls,
Agonizing features contorted with the intensity
Of our prayers,
We prayed the Infinite for a filling,
Thirsty as the vast ocean,
Hungered as the sprawling desert-
We prayed for a filling,
And as the morning our darkness cleared for the coming dawn.

This is a great privilege for me as artist to be part such important exhibition and an honour to have the opportunity to be exhibited alongside international artists.
So I would be very grateful to see friends, collectors, curators and art lovers in this unique opening.
A very special thanks goes to Michael Petry and Roberto Ekholm. 🖤💀🖤💀🖤💀🖤💀🖤💀 CONFRONT WHAT IT MEANS TO BE HUMAN
Explore the transience of time and the challenges of mortality as the 16th-century tradition of still life meets modern art. Featuring 100 works by major international contemporary artists - including Michael Craig-Martin, Polly Morgan and Gabriel Orozco, as well London-based artists - this exhibition goes beyond the two-dimensional and invites you to pause and look anew at the human condition.
It's Friday everybody ⭐️⭐️
Di seguito una sintesi dell'intervista a Giorgia Accorsi che presto troverete integralmente sul sito www.straperetana.org
S: "Perché hai deciso di partecipare a straperetana?"
GA: ". Straperetana è stata un'ottima opportunità per confrontarmi con uno spazio insolito, e con un pubblico diverso da quello consueto."
S: "Quali sono gli elementi del borgo che hanno ispirato la tua produzione e perché?"
GA: ". Ho scelto di presentare la mia performance "The Noise Inside" perché è semplice e diretta: il linguaggio dell'opera è immediato, più che mai adatto alla piazza di un paese."

"I remember the first time I´ve heard the sentence “the rings are gone, the fingers remain” (a Portuguese proverb), and how hopeful those words sounded on the doctor´s lips who had discharged the primary medical care to my mother before leading her to intensive therapy." (G.L.)⠀
003 (ficam os anéis)

"Lembro a primeira vez que ouvi a frase "vão-se os anéis, ficam os dedos" e do quanto essas palavras soaram esperançosas nos lábios da médica que havia dispensado os primeiros cuidados à minha mãe antes de conduzi-la à terapia intensiva." (G.L.)⠀
