Fino alla fine del mare
Until the end of the sea by Jacopo di Cera
The project “Until the end of the sea” tells about the trip of the author in the south of Sicily area, Lampedusa, jewel of the Mediterranean sea.Lampedusa is an island of contradditions, pains, travel, landings, hopes. It is a land of migrants. Mediterranean sea, is the theathre which inspires the the verses of Omero and his Odyssey. Lampedusa is in the center of the sea and it is the crossroad of the contemporaneity, the crossroad of millions of travels, which represent the whole umanity.This is a Umanity which is constantly moving, searching for a change, searching for new hope. The “travel” is composed by different images printed in high definnition diretly on wood pieced, partially taken by the cimitery of the migrants boat in Lampedusa beach. The wood is the symbol of this movement, of this travel. It is a passage through another dimension, through a second opportunity. Inspired by the Omero verses, 6 key words have been selected for this work :
The Travel, The Island, The Bond, The Fight, The Salvation, The Return
Each word are represented by 5 images which are linked with the constant wandering of the man.
