First exhibition of contemporary art review "Post Organic: The Day After" in collaboration with the Consortium Camu, project curated by Erica Olmetto and organized by Deheart with APGs (Association for the geomineral historic environmental park of Sardinia) and the Museo Geopunto of Iglesias.
In the following months, thanks to the collaboration of Paola Corrias, director of the Museum Geopunto, the exhibition will move into the territory of Sulcis Iglesiente and in the rest of the isled and extra isled
Matteo Campulla, Federico Cozzucoli, Simone Giovagnorio, Alessandro Muscas are the four artists involved in the first exhibition of the project (22 January to 1 March 2015, EXMA 'Cagliari), and will develop, each with its own language, the issue of extinction of resources natural and the consequent transformation of the territory, first of Sulcis Iglesiente area intensively exploited and transformed by the huge mining, from the time of the Phoenicians until the eighties.
The continuous succession of mineral processing has led to an overproduction of waste that has made it almost dry and barren landscape and, in other cases, in an unusual way, has instead created new shoots of life.
Man against nature, but also the nature against man, when the elements and aerosols in marine coastal environments continue their action of inexorable destruction of artificial materials.
A constant struggle between anthropic built and natural landscape.
Starting from such a context, the artists reflect and experience on the subject using
photographic media and digital. The project will drive their imagination to a future not too far away, where the human race will survive without the primary resources and adapt to the new environment.
The hypothetical reconstruction of the world without their resources may be different, as well as multiple scenarios that open up in a context where we are witnessing the destruction of nature, the transformation of the landscape in front of the spread of salinisation and desertification. The places are no longer distinguishable will be replaced by miles of wilderness, the houses improvised containers and disused factories now make available to the few survivors of the mechanical parts of the gears are no longer functional.
The reference to the Post Organic, artistic movement of the eighties, is dictated by the evident reference to the concept of fusion machine, artificial product created by man, with the organic elements. The product is not intended only as a hybrid human body, with vital functions / machine symbiosis continues on which developed the reflections of the first artists of the movement, but also as a fusion of the natural landscape with the artificial one, which generates a process of constant metamorphosis.

Reliquia 2012-2015
installation
 
The artist's work, which has always inspired by the symbolism and iconography Christian and Catholic worship, also highlights here significantly the importance of the relic in the reflection on the Post Organic, raising a work of art one of the objects of worship important in the history of the Church.
In the religious relic has a more or less direct connection with the holy and with their martyrdom, through conservation of one or more fragments of a garment or a part of the body such as teeth, blood, hair.
In this work the artist uses elements of your body that guards inside containers and exposed for the veneration and worship, reliquaries, with the intent to transfer the symbolic value possessed by the holy relic, highlighting the potential beneficial and salvific. This operation causes a connection to the artist himself with his own organic essence, mimicking the mechanism of the cult that is the trend that pushes the man in search of his own nature and the union with the divine.
