TALEA is a contemporary art event dedicated dedicated to the self-managed garden in via Pepe street, coordinated by Isola Art Center together with Isola Pepe Verde and NABA, New Academy of Fine Arts, Milan. Working in groups, about twenty young artists and curators from Italy, China, Greece, Turkey and Mexico have developed interventions conceived specifically for the growing community garden under construction.
Special project: UTOPIA PRODUCTIONS, documentation and materials.
In the context of the theoretical and artistic research ISOLA UTOPIA, Isola Art Center dedicates special attention to projects that it considers examples of concrete utopias or seeds of utopia in contemporary capitalist society: the self-managed garden Isola Pepe Verde and the occupied and self-managed factory RiMaflow. At the Isola Art Center stand one can find a small documentation of the last episode of ISOLA UTOPIA at RiMaflow, there will also be eco-friendly products from the recovered factories RiMaflow from Milan and Bio.Me. from Thessaloniki (Greece). UTOPIA PRODUCTIONS includes a film by Dario Azzellini & Oliver Ressler, an installation by Nikolay Oleynikov and a mural painting by Edith Poirier. Projects can be visited at RiMaflow during the opening hours of the factory.
The TALEA project includes:
– the recycling of used cork caps for the construction of seats that take the shape of a leaf
