Event Description

ART KONTAKT FESTIVAL 2014 8/10 August - Porto Palermo, ALBANIA The concept of the festival ... Uncharted is an unknown factor. It is a puzzle in which we attempt to use rational schemes and scientific rigor to offer a logical explanation of place. As in the Arboretum of David Byrne we try to create a mental map of an imaginary territory. In this place photographs, videos, drawings, installations and poetic conceptual performances, constitute the landscape of the artist’s mind. The ways in which these works come together, collide and intertwine diagrammatically outline the many facets of this festival. The relationships, connections and synergies that arise spontaneously are the final product of a long process of collecting, making and welcoming, expressing the experience and vision of artists to the world and society. The artists and selected works in this edition of this festival represent a pattern of artistic and spiritual practices that, in reflecting notions of geographic boundaries, become the focal points of this imaginary map. Here culture transcends the event to become a critical deposit of meaningful and of re-creative processes of personal life and spiritual experiences. Culture, which is constantly is reproduced and developed with the live audience becomes a natural part of the festival. In this context, cultural product enriched with emotions, perceptions and interpretations that transform the value and meaning, shifting the main axis of the simple memory of the past, to the strategic vision of the future. The creative process that characterizes the festival is not just simply an artistic, musical or spectacular journey, but it is an individual and collective experience in a place as imaginary as real; where stories are experience, where listening is identity and where looking is memory. In an essay about memory J. Le Goff reminds us that this is what feeds the story, which in return nourishes it and transforms it. In saving the past, the memory is designed to serve the present and the future. This festival is Uncharted precisely because this space will transcend known history, becoming a place where unknown stories are born.
