Thirty years after the earthquake in Irpinia, E-ArtQuake is a collective of art that aims to connect the digital art and aesthetics of new technologies, with the themes of memory, trauma and loss of identity in the aftermath of disasters such as earthquakes.
E-ArtQuake not want to be a commemorative exhibition, but an aesthetic, a way to highlight a different and unusual perspective of representation and reflection on the implications of a traumatic event involves. An artistic collective that aims to relocate and reshape a phenomenon that is both a natural and cultural heritage.
The 1980 earthquake was much discussion at all levels: political, legal, business, financial. Yet we realize that, as a generation that grew up in cities and towns of the reconstruction, construction of roads, schools, prefabricated, places without form, only scaffolding and galvanized sheets, historical centers without spaces or leisure, you have to rework and redefine the sense of an event that has influenced our history.
Translating is an event so dramatic action instead on homeopathic great power with an unprecedented potential for renewal.
