Press release : ZOOart, Local art, ZOOincittà, ZOOlive!
ZOOart inaugurates its twelfth edition with a smorgasbord of activities and
events dedicated to the transmission of contemporary art in public spaces,
4 July at 9.30pm at the Fresia Gardens in Cuneo.
The exhibition will again take place over many weeks, bringing life to the
historical centre of Cuneo with its formula of outdoor evening events as
has been proposed since 2002. The Fresia Garden, the old public zoo
transformed into a recreational zone years ago, is the historical location
for the event. It will be the background for installations produced or
adapted for the occasion in a variety of artistic styles.
More than thirty artists from Thursday until Sunday over the first three
weeks of July will present their own artworks, on the theme of the
multiplicity of relations between humans and their natural and cultural
habitat. Performance art featured will involve the direct participation of
visitors, and as the artistic journey develops, collective experimentation
will take place in the streets of the city.
Like each year, the ZOOart program will place an emphasis on the local
artistic context, with the second edition of the project Local art, as well
as attracting an array of international artists.
Local art is a project of the CRC Foundation in collaboration with Art.ur
to support artists from the Province of Cuneo, and will be a key aspect of
ZOOart. Eight young artists selected by a committee made up of Claudio
Cravero, curator of the P.A.V of Turin, representatives of Art.ur and the
CRC foundation will have their artworks displayed during the three weeks of
the exhibition: Paolo Ansaldi, Sara Becchio and Paolo Borghino
(StudioErrante Architecture) con Miriam Fabris e Emanuele Greco, Michela
Depetris, Roberto Fassone, Simone Longo, Vittorio Mortarotti, Alessandro
Quaranta and Enrico Tealdi. The foundation will support the three winners
by purchasing their artworks and promoting their visibility through the
participation in national and international exhibitions.
At the same time, the historical centre of Cuneo will be livened by the
2013 edition of the project ZOOincittà, consolidated by months of work
undertaken by a specifically created workshop which was created in
collaboration with the Order of Architects, the students who participated
in the workshop of Professor Daniele Regis in the Department of
Architecture and Design of the Polytechnic Institution of Turin and the
Association Best Torino. The site specific installations of the theme
“Community” will be located in Via Roma, Via Mondovì, Via Caraglio, Via
Dronero, Via F. Cavallotti, Piazza Audifreddi in Cuneo. They were produced
over the last few months through the ZOOincittà workshops and selected
from hundreds of propositions of young architects, designers and students
within the Cuneo area and will be visible from 4 July to the 31 August.
ZOOincittà has a vast number of participants and was created in
partnership between the Association of Retailers including numerous
businesses from the Piedmont territory and is supported by the Company San
During Thursday and Saturday evenings, in the three weeks of ZOOart from
the 4 – 21 July in the Fresia gardens, the performances and live sets
selected by Art.ur and the independent label Betulla Records will take
place as part of the ZOOlive performances. 6 international performers will
present their works at the ex-zoo or will involve visitors to the garden in
stimulating and poetic collective events.
Finally, the workshop “DlinDlinZumZumPeppé”, part of the ZOObimbi project
will allow children to play with their imagination through the creative
reuse of recycled materials by transforming them into musical instruments.
The workshop ZOObimbi will also include the group theatre-fanfare
coordinated by the French artist Béatrice Bailet, which is inspired by the
fantastical journey in train from Cuneo to Nice, a train line which winds
through the landscapes of the Alps and is currently in risk of being closed.
The workshop will take place in the Fresia Gardens on Thursday and Friday
The presentation of ZOOart and the works selected for the exhibition in
public spaces ZOOincittà will take place in the form of a press
