Open Art Örebro #13
Art: Ammunition / Artist: Adriana Affortunati (Brazil)
I often use historical events and elements to influence my research although, to produce, I depend on a spontaneous or intentional encounter with objects that I claim as art material. I select old elements with wear marks that testify the passage of time, registering it`s memory.The objects are grouped, organized and suffer various forms of interference, resulting in objects or installations. // Adriana Affortunati

Art: Stalagmites / Artist: Marisa Merlin (Italy)
My works aim to be a reinterpretation and a reworking of the ecological and social demands, in reference to the quality of the human footprint on the Earth. Since several years I’m increasingly oriented towards large scale site/context-specific-installations, to build relations with the environment, engaging people in contrasting emotions in different levels: emotional, physical and intellectual, conflicting emotions of curiosity and aversion, attraction and sense of danger at the same time. // Marisa Merlin
