press release

Nervegna Art Cafè opens its doors to a video-photographic project by Loredana Denicola. The Theatre of the Mind will be presented to the public in the form of a review of video-art and photography, curated by Ilaria Caravaglio and Valeria Gatti.

Every Thursday, starting from 16 September and until 28 October, a meeting will be held in the garden of the Cafeteria, in the presence of the artist and curators, in which one of the 7 videos that will involve the project will be presented and screened.

The Theatre of the Mind is an installation project of seven videos and photographs; each video varies from 25 to 50 minutes, for a total of 5 hours.

The project is an exploration into the facets of the mind. An invitation that, starting from a personal need of the artist, extends to the public, aiming to open a dialogue with the viewer/spectator. It is a video-photographic project based on trust, on the exploration of oneself through the other as enrichment and discovery, on acceptance; because everything that irritates us in others says something about us.

On Thursday 07 October at 7.30 pm there will be the video documentation of Stephanie, finally I am me, a woman. We will talk about gender dysphoria.

Homosexuality and transsexuality are still unknown to many.

There is repulsion because they question our opinion of 'normality'.

Social prejudices equal to those for racism and for all minority groups that in the past have suffered violence, abuse and other forms of prejudice, isolation, marginalization and other forms of violence and discrimination.

Why is there a lack of gender education, especially among school, which allows us to understand and respect human variability, overcome the fear of the different and prevent, instead of fighting homophobia, transphobia and cyberbullying?

Dialogue and co-operation therefore become fundamental both for enriching our identity and our personal life, and for the development of society as a whole.

At school we need to respect each other, understand the similarities and differences between males and females.

In schools it should be taught that boys and girls need tenderness. It should be said that the woman is not the man’s slave and that the males, the fathers, must take care of their children as their wives do and that such care is not exclusive to women.

It would take more respect, listening and love to create a better world.
