In questo intervento Polese parlerà del suo processo creativo e del ruolo critico dell’arte nell’affrontare le questioni contemporanee. Attraverso un’esplorazione dell’influenza storica del filo, della tessitura e degli arazzi, insieme ai cambiamenti culturali nell’Europa e nell’Italia del XX secolo, la discussione sottolineerà l’importanza della comprensione dei materiali e delle tradizioni culturali nella creazione artistica. Polese condividerà il suo viaggio dalle forme d’arte bidimensionali a quelle tridimensionali, comprese le installazioni site-specific che favoriscono l’interazione con gli spettatori e le esperienze immersive. L’intervento sottolineerà anche il potenziale dell’arte per l’interazione sociale e la terapia, affrontando il dolore emotivo, alimentando la resilienza e guidando un cambiamento positivo della società verso una vita più sostenibile.
