ITA
Come diventa possibile contaminare gli orizzonti partendo “dal basso”.
Analizziamo un linguaggio non conforme necessariamente ad attitudini di legalità e passività di fronte all’alienazione. Poniamo l’attenzione su come l’orizzonte dei segni può influire sulle esperienze emotive delle persone che vivono la quotidianità in città.
L’intervento sul vagone di un treno, su un muro, ha l’intento spesso inconscio di creare una rottura visiva, un attacco di vernice volto a colpire l’intoccabile.
Una spontaneità che dal basso con pochi mezzi irrita i nervi scoperti della città ed evidenzia il fallimento di un orizzonte alienante e ripetitivo.
E’ una necessità intervenire per riqualificare, attuare percorsi di reale decoro dove i vecchi moduli sono falliti e sono diventati contenitori incapaci di rispecchiare la dignità delle persone che ci abitano.
Headlines è un attacco alle superfici urbane per riqualificare ed intervenire negli spazi. Headlines evidenzia i primi passi di uno spontaneo attivismo che si muove verso un cosciente attacco ai moduli urbani; è una piccola resistenza, che racconta le proprie pratiche ed esperienze caratterizzanti.
I protagonisti volgono lo sguardo dentro e fuori i propri luoghi d’azione e i propri ambiti di passione, analizzando e raccontando il proprio percorso.


ENG
The practice of Graffiti Writing, even if considered as an artistic experience which is becoming socially accepted, lives with the threat of a constant repression from a judicial point of view. By now every day on our territory there are arrests, frisks, trials. Specifically, this situation concerns also the City of Venice, that during last year has been stage of an investigation on local writers, without a clear communication of the charges.
The aim of Headlines project is to investigate, through an exhibition and several collateral events, on the real nature of this art form, that arises in a spontaneous way - the most part of times illegally - and fixes itself on the braces that the city offers. It’s an artistic form that develops itself from the lower layers of society, and expands itself on border city areas, subverting the homogeneity of signs of the urban horizon. The goal is to create a visual break, in order to stimulate a critical rethinking on the daily context in the people who are passing by.
However, in some cases, the need is to re-skill - through decorative intervention - utopian architectural projects that evidently failed, since unable to mirror the dignity of the life they host.
Headlines is a project curated by Urban-Code, collaborating with Sintetico. The works exhibited on S.A.L.E docks’ walls come from the street, but they are the result of the individual path of each artist.
During the period of the exhibition various live painting sessions will take place on the Venetian territory, together with the performance that will see as protagonist the international group of artists known as F.A.T. Lab, who uses technology for realizing works in urban contexts. The exhibition starts from the previous experience of Guilty at the Dock. Headlines is also the story of a reaction of the artists on themselves, a will to analyze their own practices and characterising experiences and to turn the look inside and outside their proper places of action.
