Dea Madre (2016)
installation, red mud, mine scraps, clay in collaboration with Antonella Aio
produced by Sulcis Hub, Bjcem
during the artistic residence Sulcis Hub curated by Olga Bachschimdt
The Mother Goddess is the Sardinian icon par excellence. It is the "Earth", conceived as the "generator" of life and therefore as "mother", in whose "womb" one returns after death. Modeling it with red mud - noxious waste from the mine - becomes an act of spiritual and environmental denunciation and reflection on our history and our present.
