An open invitation to anyone who wants to create a carpet-map together with the artist and the Teatro delle Moire.
A symbolic action to celebrate 25 years of Danae Festival.
Federica Terracina is an independent artist specialized in textile art; she is a painter, costume designer, and educator. She studied with the artist Michele Cossyro and her pictorial research was influenced by phenomenal abstraction. Her approach focuses on the interaction with space. Her work was presented in several festivals and galleries both in Italy and abroad. For Danae Festival’s 25th anniversary, we asked Federica Terracina to create an event involving the participation of the Festival’s artistic direction along with the community that gathers around it.
In this event, Terracina proposes an exercise whose aim is creating a map-carpet by putting together coloured pieces of cloth, following the tension and surrending to the dizziness provoked by shapes, colours, matters, and sounds.
A project that brings people together with the shared goal of creating a temporary installation. The reiteration of gestures – cutting, sewing, knotting – turns the handling of fabrics into a mantra, and allows to trigger an intimate level of listening and a non-everyday relationship with time.
