As part of the curatorial project foreignness, Fondazione La Fabbrica del Cioccolato is pleased to announce the opening of the exhibition “Three Grades of Foreignness” by the Israeli artist Yuval Avital, realized with the support of ASI Associazione Svizzera Israele – Sezione Ticino. The exhibition will open Saturday April 22, 2017 and will remain on view through July 01, 2017.
With the personal exhibition Three Grades of Foreignness, based on an intensive research activity carried out by Yuval Avital during his stay in Blenio Valley, the artist proposes three artworks in dialogue with the spaces of Fondazione La Fabbrica del Cioccolato, realized with the aim of exploring the complex relationship between humans and nature. The exhibition path winds through a symbiosis of sounds, images and lights, in which the public discovers three interconnected installations where the human being is first represented as hostile and in contrast with nature and then brought back to its primordial state, going across three phases characterizing this relationship: alienation, conflict and reunification.
