OCEAN SPACE |Moving Off the Land II

An innovative project set inside the space that belonged to this ancient church, known for having preserved (up to their disappearance) the remains of Marco Polo, presenting this spectacular multi-media installation by American video-artist and performer Joan Jonas. This display, commissioned by TBA21-Academy, the platform addressing issues and creative solutions regarding oceans, by curator Stefanie Hessler, represents the apex of three years of research and exploration by the artist on the theme of environmental emergency concerning oceans.

Founded in 2011, TBA21 takes artists, scientists and opinion-leaders on collaborative discovery expeditions, favouring a deeper knowledge of the ocean through the lens of art and generating creative solutions to its most urgent issues.
