FRANCESCO MARILUNGO “LOVE SOUVENIR”
16 – 25 November 2017 e 12 – 21 December 2017
In the frame of the three-year National Residency Programme, Villa Nappi will host Francesco Marilungo to work on his new creation “LOVE SOUVENIR”.
Religion is a crucial part of society and culture: the meaning of human life was historically explained in relation to a divine entity.
Every discourse about God even uses a specific language and God’s description always influences human’s description.
When we relate the concept of only one God to the existence of two different biological sex, things get complicated – with God always described with male adjectives, what change is coming in an age where woman are equally relevant?
