Read the package leaflet carefully
There are the boxes of psychotropic drugs, levomepromazine tablets, the electroshock machine, the "emoivator" that releases only "art attacks" and "artist's visions" that tell stories of life, emotions, desires that psychiatric illness did not cancel. It is the exhibition "Read carefully the package leaflet", set up in the spaces of the Bernardini library, in the Convitto Palmieri, which brings together the works of the ceramist Giorgio Di Palma and those created by the guests of the Casa per la Vita "Artemide" social health facility in Racale.
Art as a therapy but also as a channel of communication to "others", between the psychiatric community and that of the "healthy", between which there is often a distance carved out by prejudice and fear. The works on display are the result of "Attacks d’Arte ˈRez (ə) dəns", a residency project in the artist's social and health facility coordinated by sociologist Walter Spennato.
The exhibition is open until January 29th.
Hours: Monday to Friday 8-20, Saturday 8-14.
