The Light of the Stones – as part of Luminic Festival

We are glad to be part of Luminic Festival, with the exhibition The Lights of the Stones by Savina Tarsitano and Dinu Flamand.

An interdisciplinary project, resulting from the encounter between the Italian artist Savina Tarsitano and the Romanian poet Dinu Flamând, is an intercultural dialogue on the existence of the human being, the relation to nature, the importance of the place and the translated memory through the photographs.
The collaboration of the two artists led to the publication of the book Ombre e Falesie in 2018, mixing image and poetry.

Since then their collaboration has continued with the publication of 7 volumes of poetic anthology in different languages (Catalan, Hebrew, English, Italian, German, Romanian, and so on). The exhibition was presented in different European countries and around the world with contemporary art circuits. The project highlights the importance of nature, identity, cultural heritage, through an interdisciplinary language that includes poetry, photography and, in the latest period, music with the maestro Marco Misciagna. The photos on display were taken in different countries of the world with different artistic residences, from Greenland, Mauritius, Cuba, Martinique, Calabria, Germany, among abandoned places and monuments under restoration.

The project is under the patronage of the European Parliament of Culture, the Bogliasco Foundation of New York, where the two artists met during their residency in 2005. In September the exhibition has been presented at the Centres des Arts Ecolint, Geneve, Switerland in occasion of the project of Michelangelo Pistoletto “Art for Social Impact”.

LUMÍNIC is the photography festival of Sant Cugat del Vallès, which since 2019 has been promoting auteur photography. LUMÍNIC floods Sant Cugat del Vallès, transforming it into a meeting point for photography lovers. It bursts into the city to study photography, generating new spaces for knowledge and reflection, with an inclusive and participatory character.  In a week of opening and two months of running, a full programme of exhibitions, talks, workshops and round tables will be held. Based on a new thread each year, visitors will be able to enjoy established and emerging authors, both national and international. LUMÍNIC is a platform that works all year round, generating synergies with other cultural agents for the promotion of photography.
