Come un mare fuor d’acqua (As a sea out of water)” is an ongoing project by Anna Raimondo and curated by Marco Trulli, based on the paradox to activate the sea where there is not and on a radical reconceptualization that aims to think about our bond and reliance on water as a symbolic element, as a politic field, a geographic space but also as a place of relations.
So far the project has been realized in different steps and geographies: “Come un mare fuor d’acqua #1” in the frame of the residence “Here is elsewhere” at the Fabbrica del Vapore in collaboration with Mare Culturale Urbano in 2015; “Come un mare fuor d’acqua #2 – L’eau en Senne” during the residence program at the MAAC in 2016 supported by BJCEM and Europe Creative; “Come un mare fuor d’acqua #3 – Forza e coraggio il mare è di passaggio” in Viterbo in the frame of the residence “Cantieri d’Arte” in collaboration with ARCI, Tuscia’s University and Viterbo’s Prison in 2017 supported by the Lazio’s Region.
In the frame of “Come un mare fuor d’acqua #3 – Forza e coraggio il mare è di passaggio” the artist has recorded five men in Viterbo’s prison about their imaginaries and sings related to the sea, to create a mix of radio portraits and songs. A Sunday morning, a little truck with its own sound system has broadcast these recordings in the streets, to create a sonic trip from the prison to the sea, passing trough the city of Viterbo.
