Angelo Bellobono’s talk will allow us to see the Mediterranean from a new perspective: not just the see, but also the mountains surrounding it. Telling the story of the Mediterranean since 7ML of years ago, he suggests that borders don't belong to Nature, rather Nature creates continuity.
Angelo Bellobono is an artist and ski coach. The ice and mountains are frequent metaphorical elements in his work; ice representing the planet’s archival memory, and mountains depicted as hinges and not barriers, connecting cultures. His works explore the concepts of identity, borders and how social and geopolitical changes have effected people.
He created the Atla(s)Now project in the Atlas Mountains of Morocco, a community platform for cross-disciplinary collaboration where art and skiing are used as a means of social and economic development.
Bellobono’s works have been extensively exhibited, including the IV and V Marrakech Biennal, the XV Quadriennale of Rome, Macro Museum in Rome, Museum of Modern Art of New Delhi and Cairo City, Volume foundation and many galleries such Wunderkammern in Rome and Envoy gallery in New York. In 2005 he won the Celeste Prize for painting. In 2014 began a new shared project in New York with the community of Native Americans Ramapough Lenape.
