The Pink Night - REgeneration Rimini
Cracking Art Group: Exhibition and installation in the city
Large fuchsia colored snails arrive in the city. Rimini is an important step in the REgeneration project which has begin its “tour” in Milan at the end of last year. The snails represent three metaphors: the listening because it recalls the "form" of the human ear, the living because it brings its house with it, the modern technology of graphics which refers to the communications networks. And at last, the project REgeneration by Cracking Art Group has another important value: the snails are made of recyclable plastic to an ethically responsible approach to the environment.
For the first time, together with the installation of snails, there will be an exhibition which illustrates the work of all individual members of the group in order to show all aspects of this artistic movement.
Added to the exhibition there will be a video and a photographic documentation of Rimini hinterland.
