JUST OUT OF THE ORDINARY

Just out of the ordinary is a project developed by the System of Valle Camonica Museums in collaboration with the Archive of Ethnography and Social History of the Lombardy Region. Promoted and supported by the Directorate-General for Contemporary Creativity in the context of the public program “Strategia Fotografia 2020”, Just out of the ordinary involves three different authors,  José Pedro Cortes (Porto, 1976), Cyrille Weiner (Parigi, 1976) and Alessandra Spranzi (Milano, 1962). The project foresees an artistic residency with each author and the production of a book published by A+MBookstore. The residences of the authors will coincide with three workshops, open to all, which work in continuity with the itinerant training method of the Master Iuav in Photography.

Just out of the ordinary is a project curated by Elena Turetti, Stefano Graziani, Marta Tonelli and Sara Bassi.

Just out of the ordinary is developed in the collaboration with:
MUSE – Museo delle Scienze di Trento
tsm|step Scuola per il Governo del Territorio e del Paesaggio, Trento (TN)
Ecomuseum of Vanoi, Canal San Bovo (TN)
Camon, Center for art and crafts, Monno (BS)

 

THE THEME
JUST OUT OF THE ORDINARY

Alpine communities retain a capacity to relate with the natural environment so preponderant that it connotes their way of seeing and explaining the world. From this relationship with the landscape, private and collective practices have been born, several spaces are still used today by the inhabitants of the alpine valleys or reused by new inhabitants in completely different ways. A system of values, distant from the orthodoxy of a religion or a political system, persists and constructs heterodox relationships between people, between people and beasts, between the individual and the community. The relationship with the natural environment does affect the way of living, the way of building social relationships, the way people nurture themselves, the way they imagine forms of representation, of foreseeing a possible future.

Alpine communities must be imagined as a singular, original, and strong reality and not only as a marginal phenomenon compared to large urban centers. As an alternative way of living and working. How can we gather this special relationship with the natural environment? Ordinary compared to which culture? Ordinary? Familiar? Daily? Domestic? Near?
